Although the role of liposomes in drug targeting has been discussed extensively in several reviews and books, there has been no comprehensive coverage of related methodology. This book constitutes the first attempt to put together all aspects of lipsome technology as applied to medical sciences. Volume II describes procedures for the entrapment of a number of drugs, including genetic material, into selected types of lipsomes.
