Liposomes, which are biodegradable and essentially non-toxic vehicles, can encapsulate both hydrophilic and hydrophobic materials, and are utilized as drug carriers in drug delivery systems. In addition, liposomes can be used to carry radioactive compounds as radiotracers can be linked to multiple locations in liposomes. One option is the hydrated compartment inside the liposome, another the lipid core into which especially hydrophobic conjugates can be attached, and the third option is the… CONTINUE READING
