Importance of Drug Delivery to the Central Nervous System (CNS) Most drugs produce their required pharmacological response by altering cell function or structure in a concentration-dependent and reversible manner. Unless the target tissue is the blood and the drug is given intravenously or intra-arterially, the pharmacological response is dependent on the distribution of the drug to the target tissue in therapeutically relevant concentrations for sufficient periods of time to produce the clinically desired response.
