To mark 50 years of liposome research, this Special Issue on liposome technologies will include a variety of research articles, both reviews and original research contributions, dealing with liposomes. From the manufacturing methods, to the state-of-the-art research pipelines, the issue aims to provide an overview of well-established liposome technologies, marketed products, and promising new approaches in modification of liposomes for targeted drug delivery. Conventional, surface-modified, and elastic liposomes, such as deformable liposomes, ethosomes, and permeation enhancer containing vesicles, in various routes of drug administration, from topical to parenteral, will be the focus of the issue. Contributions discussing the ability of liposomes to assure prolonged, controlled and targeted drugs delivery and current limitations are invited. The industrial manufacturing aspects, as well as potential of liposomes in delivery of cosmeceuticals and nutraceuticals will also be considered.
