About this book

With nearly one hundred years of intensive study, lipids have proven to be a vital and ever-more-promising area of cell biological research. In Liposomes: Methods and Protocols, leading experts in the related fields explore cutting-edge experimental methods involving all aspects of lipids as essential components of the cell membrane. Volume 1: Pharmaceutical Nanocarriers focuses on the state-of-the-art aspects of developing liposome-based nanoscale drug delivery techniques, delving into the depths of the emerging field of pharmaceutical and biomedical nanotechnology. As a volume in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series, the chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Comprehensive and authoritative, Liposomes: Methods and Protocols promises to be an essential source of practical know-how for every investigator, young and seasoned alike, whose research area involves in one way or another phospholipids, glycolipids, or cholesterol.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book provides in-depth descriptions of tumor and gene therapies, focusing on cationic liposomes. … The book presents the most seminal studies on the application of liposomes in the pharmaceutical area published over the past two decades. … the content provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of the topic and constitutes essential reading for those working or intending to work in the development of drug nanocarriers.” (Nádia Araci Bou Chacra, Brazilian Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Vol. 46 (4), October-December, 2010)

“Provide a comprehensive guide to the preparation, characterisation, and potential use of currently known types of liposomes. They are written using an interdisciplinary approach, and so provide essential knowledge of liposomes, for not only researchers in this particular field, but also scientists in wider pharmaceutical and biological areas. … very inspiring – the potential for liposomes is immense – and these well-written chapters ignited notions of further applications – this is clearly a very exciting field.” (Trudy L. Knight, BTS Newsletter, Issue 37, Winter, 2010)
