Artificial lipids stabilized camptothecin incorporated in liposomes.

Camptothecin (CPT) has anticancer activity. While only the lactone form of CPT is biologically active, this form exhibits poor aqueous solubility. Pharmaceutical formulation of CPT incorporated in liposomes is of significant importance to develop the therapeutic utilization of CPT. The aim of this study was to increase incorporation efficiency and stability… CONTINUE READING
