Cisplatin Encapsulation Generates Morphologically Different Multicompartments in the Internal Nanostructures of Nonlamellar Liquid-Crystalline Self-Assemblies.

Cisplatin ( cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II)) is among the most potent cytotoxic agents used in cancer chemotherapy. The encapsulation of cisplatin in lipid-based drug carriers has been challenging owing to its low solubility in both aqueous and lipid phases. Here, we investigated cisplatin encapsulation in nonlamellar liquid-crystalline (LC… CONTINUE READING
