About this Reference Work

This volume mainly describes the protocols for fabrication of liposomal drug delivery system, and consists of three parts, namely, the advances in liposome-based drug delivery system, the general protocols for fabrication of drug-loading liposomes, and the protocols for preparation of functionalized liposome-based drug delivery system. It unearths the formulation of drug-loading liposomes, describes the detailed operation of liposomal formulation, and demonstrates their potential applications. This handbook is targeted at scientists, research students, and young investigators in pharmaceutical enterprises.
