Pharmacosomes are colloidal dispersions of drugs covalently bound to lipids, and may exist as ultrafine vesicular, micellar, or hexagonal aggregates, depending on the chemical structure of drug-lipid complex. It is based on the principle that the drug binds covalently to a lipid where the resulting compound is the carrier and the active compound at the same time. The physicochemical properties depend on drug as well as the lipid. This system shows low entrapment efficiency and drug leakage… Expand
Pharmacosomes: A novel drug delivery system
TLDR
Pharmacosomes are used in drug targeting in cancer and also brain targeting by using 5-flouro-2-deoxyuridine Pharmacosomes, which minimize drug degradation and increase bioavailability of poorly soluble drugs. Expand
Pharmacosomes as Drug Delivery System: An Overview
TLDR
Drug pharmacosomes provide an effective method of delivering the drug directly to the infection site, which contributes to a lowering in drug toxicity without harmful effects, and also lowers the cost of therapy by improving the drug's bioavailability, particularly in the case of poorly soluble drugs.

Ethosomes - novel vesicular carriers for enhanced delivery: characterization and skin penetration properties.
TLDR
Experiments using fluorescent probes and ultracentrifugation showed that the ethosomes had a high entrapment capacity for molecules of various lyophilicities, including testosterone from an ethosomal patch was greater both in vitro and in vivo than from commercially available patches. Expand

TLDR
Transfersomes were successfully used in animals and humans, also for the transcutaneous peptide and protein delivery, and the theoretical rational for this is described together with the corresponding experimental models and practical examples. Expand
Phase behaviour of a diglyceride prodrug: spontaneous formation of unilamellar vesicles.
TLDR
From ESR spin labeling it is concluded that in sonicated dispersions the prodrug molecule is more mobile and its anisotropy of motion is reduced compared to unsonication dispersions. Expand
Hypoglycemic efficacy of chitosan-coated insulin liposomes after oral administration in mice.
TLDR
Chitosan-coated liposomes could reduce tryptic digestion on insulin, and enhance enteral absorption of insulin in mice, and have significant effects on hypoglycemic efficacy. Expand
Evaluation of a novel lipid prodrug for intraocular drug delivery: effect of acyclovir diphosphate dimyristoylglycerol in a rabbit model with herpes simplex virus-1 retinitis.
TLDR
Acyclovir diphosphate dimyristoylglycerol had prolonged antiviral activity against herpes simplex virus-1 retinitis in a rabbit model and may allow long-acting intravitreal treatment of cytomegalovirus retinopathy and other retinal diseases. Expand
Large volume liposomes by an ether vaporization method.
TLDR
Liposomes, in the size range of microsomal vesicles, are formed when ether solutions of a variety of lipids are injected into warm aqueous solutions and the volume trapping efficiency is approximately ten times that of sonicated and hand-shaken preparations. Expand
The Potent Adjuvant Activity of Archaeosomes Correlates to the Recruitment and Activation of Macrophages and Dendritic Cells In Vivo1
TLDR
The activation of APCs correlated to the ability of archaeosomes to induce strong humoral, T helper, and CTL responses to entrapped Ags, indicating an efficient self-adjuvanting process for induction of Ag-specific responses to encapsulated Ags. Expand
