Abstract
This paper discusses the various properties of liposomes as effective new drug delivery methods. Novel drug delivery methods have revolutionized the field of chemotherapy and liposomes are at the centre of this revolution. Liposomes are small spherical vesicular structures consisting of bilayers composed of amphiphilic molecules, phospholipids and were first discussed in the 1960s. They possess similar physiochemical properties as cell membranes and thus, are able to survive in the physiological conditions of the body better than many other novel drug delivery agents. Consequently, liposomes are great tools in achieving the task of targeted drug delivery. One of the biggest advantages associated with using liposomes as drug delivery vehicles is the ease of modifying liposomes according to the demands of an effective treatment strategy.
