Lyophilization of a triply unsaturated phospholipid: effects of trace metal contaminants.

As liquid liposomal formulations are prone to chemical degradation and aggregation, these formulations often require freeze drying (e.g., lyophilization) to achieve sufficient shelf-life. However, liposomal formulations may undergo oxidation during lyophilization and/or during prolonged storage. The goal of the current study was to characterize the… CONTINUE READING
