Liposome Technology, Volume II: Entrapment of Drugs and Other Materials into Liposomes, Third Edition is a comprehensively updated and expanded new edition of a classic text in the field. Including step-by-step technical details, Volume II describes procedures for the incorporation of drugs and other materials into liposomes for a variety therapeutics, chosen because of their relevance to current trends in liposome applications or because they represent groups of active pharmaceutical ingredients with similar physical and chemical properties. This source also offers critical discussions of the methodologies of each technology described so that readers can examine the benefits and limitations and compare it to other approaches.
