Liposomes — Further Considerations of Their Possible Role as Carriers of Therapeutic Agents
Liposomes, for many years a tool of the membranologists, have over the last 12 years been used in many other areas of research. Apart from their continuing use in membrane research, including immunological investigations, these phospholipid vesicles have found themselves the centre of attraction as possible carriers of materials of therapeutic interest.
