This volume critically reviews the applications of liposomes (some for the first time), including theoretical physics, chemistry, energy conversion, ecology, genetic engineering, food industry, cosmetics, and medicine, as well as their characteristics and properties. It presents the most recent developments, such as Stealth liposomes (which are invisible to the immune system and have shown encouraging results in cancer therapy). Rather than being presented in a "catalog" style, the data are logically explained, and fundamental models and mechanisms are reviewed and proposed. All of the seemingly unrelated phenomena in various methods and applications are defined using simple laws of physics, chemistry, and biology. For pharmacists and pharmacologists as well as those involved in liposome research. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

It deserves a wide audience, to make us properly aware of the potential of liposomal formulations of drugs and diagnostics long promised but only now appearing, and so that the continued enthusiasm of the developer can be better tempered by awareness of the severe demands of pharmaceutical reality. -- Journal of Pharmaceutical Medicine
