About this book

This book provides an up-to-date evaluation of clinical aspects of newly available "long-circulating liposome" formulations. Based on results from numerous clinical studies, the book describes the fundamentals of this new technology, discusses how it may influence the pharmacology of existing well-known agents reformulated in this manner, and elaborates on future expectations. It provides the practicing clinician - in particular, oncologists and critical care infectious disease physicians - with the tools needed to use these new formulations towards the best outcome for the patient.
