Within the broad spectrum of nanoparticulate carriers, polymeric and lipid-core micelles, liposomes, solid nanoparticles and many others have demonstrated great biological properties which make them excellent pharmaceutical delivery systems. In particular, micelles and liposomes have been shown to have good longevity in the blood that allows their accumulation in pathological areas with a compromised vasculature; can possess specific targeting to disease sites when various targeting ligands are… CONTINUE READING
