This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Liposomes are synthetic vesicles consisting of one or morephospholipid bilayers, able to accommodate water- and lipid-solublemolecules. They are used as a delivery system for drugs, genes andvaccines in therapeutics. This collection of reviews and laboratory protocols provides thereader with an excellent introduction to some of the many ways inwhich liposomes can be labeled and used in both diagnostic andtherapeutic applications. Diagnostic uses include attachment ofradiolabels to track nanometer-sized liposomes in the body in aquantitative fashion using PET or SPECT imaging. The ability totrack the uptake of liposomes in humans and research animals on awhole-body basis provides an excellent tool for developingliposome-based drug delivery agents. The attachment of therapeuticmolecules to liposomes also has great promise in cancer therapy. Inaddition, recent developments in the use of liposomes carryingtherapeutic radionuclides for cancer therapy will be reviewed. Alaboratory protocol is also provided to illustrate how liposomesare routinely used to transfect (deliver) DNA into cells. This e-book is a curated collection from eLS, WIREs, and CurrentProtocols on the topic of liposomes in nanomedicine. It is a greatintroduction to the field for students or interdisciplinarycollaborators.
