The study examined the antiparkinsonian effect of nerve growth factor adsorbed on the surface of polybutylcyanoacrylate nanoparticles coated with polysorbate-80 surfactant. The parkinsonian syndrome in C57B1/6 mice was provoked by intraperitoneal injection of 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine. The basic symptoms of the parkinsonian syndrome decreased under the action of the nerve growth factor adsorbed on nanoparticles coated with polysorbate-80, which was seen from decreased rigidity and increased locomotor activity compared to control mice receiving with 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine alone. This effect of nerve growth factor on nanoparticles persisted after 7 and 21 days after single injection of the neurotoxin. These data attest to the possibility of using nanoparticles prepared from amphiphilic polymers and coated with polysorbate-80 for the delivery of nerve growth factor into the brain during systemic treatment.
