The delivery of therapeutics to target sites frequently involves crossing biological barriers like the blood-brain barrier (BBB), the blood retinal barrier (BRB), the small intestine, and the skin. The nature and degree of the hindrance to flux, and the approaches to conquering it, rely on tissues, therapeutics, and other factors. Receptor-mediated transcytosis (RMT) is a widespread transport process. Recently, there has been growing interest in developing actively targeted drug delivery systems to avoid biological barriers through RMT. This session deals with recent research development on studies aiming at overcoming these barriers.
