Vesicular phospholipid gels.

  • M. Brandl
  • Published 2010 in Methods in molecular biology


Highly concentrated phospholipid dispersions of vesicular morphology, Vesicular phospholipid Gels (VPGs) are of importance for sustained release of drugs upon implantation, or, upon transfer into SUV-dispersions, for drug delivery upon i.v. injection. Here the formation of homogeneous lipid and lipid/drug-blends is described as well as the preparation of VPGs by high-pressure homogenization, along with remote loading via "passive loading".
