Liposomes are artificial, spherical, closed vesicles consisting of one or more lipid bilayer(s). Liposomes made from ester phospholipids have been studied extensively over the last 3 decades as artificial membrane models. Considerable interest has been generated for applications of liposomes in medicine, including their use as diagnostic reagents, as carrier vehicles in vaccine formulations, or as delivery systems for drugs, genes, or cancer imaging agents. The objective of this article is to… CONTINUE READING
