Liposomes are structurally and functionally some of the most versatile supramolecular assemblies in existence and benefit greatly from the amplification provided by encapsulated markers, and nanotube-interconnected liposome networks have emerged as ultra small-scale analytical devices.

Characterization and analytical applications of dye-encapsulated zwitterionic liposomes

The aim of this project was to use marker encapsulated liposomes as biomembrane mimicking entities in order to study membrane properties like permeability and to better understand the interaction of biological lipid bilayers with membrane-active molecules, like beta blocker drugs and antimicrobial peptides.

Challenges in Development of Targeted Liposomal Therapeutics

This review highlights evolution of liposomes for both passive and active targeting and challenges in development of targeted liposomal therapeutics specifically antibody-targeted liposome loaded with anticancer drugs.

A comprehensive review on recent preparation techniques of liposomes

This review presents several novel methods of liposome synthesis and drug encapsulation that were introduced over the last decade and compare their advantages over conventional methods.

Engineering stealth liposome surfaces: exercises in colloid chemistry principles

Liposome bilayers have been attractive tools mainly as models of biological membranes and as delivery devices for enzymes, genetic material, anticancer drugs, agents for diagnostic imaging and antibacterials, and in the formulation of cosmetics as evidenced by the plethora of commercial cosmetic products claiming to contain liposomes.

Liposome-nanogel structures for future pharmaceutical applications.

Biocompatibility and stability, ability to deliver a broad range of bioactive molecules, environmental responsiveness of both inner nanogel core and external lipid bilayer, and individual specificity of both compartments make the liposome-nanogel design a versatile drug delivery system relevant for all known drug administration routes.

Factors affecting microencapsulation of drugs in liposomes.

Factors that affect encapsulation of drugs in liposomes such as liposomal size and type, charge on the liposome surface, bilayer rigidity, method of preparation, remote loading, addition of ion pairing, and complexing agents and characteristics of the drug to be encapsulated are discussed.

Liposomes : a multifaceted delivery system

Here, for the first time, simultaneous co-encapsulation of hydrophilic and lipophilic drug was demonstrated, and microfluidics proved advantageous with regards to time required for liposome production, one-step production of small unilamellar vesicles (SUV), narrow PDI and effective drug encapsulation with lower amounts of lipids.
