Ultrasound-based blood-brain barrier disruption enhances drug delivery. To bypass the human skull, an implantable ultrasound emitter was developed, and proven safe and feasible in a first-in-human trial. Next development steps aim for larger field of disruption, quantification of drug levels, use of various drugs, and ultimately a pivotal trial demonstrating improved outcome.
