Polymer Coated Liposomes for Drug Delivery to Target Specific Organs
Liposomes have gained wide acceptance in chemotherapy as potential carriers in introducing drugs and macromolecules into cells. However, several problems to be overcome still remain before the liposomal drug-delivery system achieves its usefulness in biological and medicinal usages (1, 2). First of all is to depress the permeability of water soluble materials entrapped in liposomes, and the second is to access an ability for liposomes to specifically land onto the target cells or tissues.
