This special issue “Liposome Technologies” will deal with all aspects of liposome-mediated delivery of therapeutic agents. Therapeutic agents may include drugs, or any biological agents including DNA, RNA, proteins, or antigens for vaccination. The mode of delivery may be passive or ligand-mediated targeting, controlled release, or systemic localization. The topic of papers can be the preparation of novel formulations, study of their properties, the in vivo or in vitro testing of such agents for their efficacy or stability, or study of their localization within cells in vitro or in vivo. In addition to papers that focus directly on therapeutic applications, studies dealing with the fundamental aspects of liposomes of concern for their use in drug delivery will also be considered.
