Liposome Technology, Volume III: Interactions of Liposomes with the Biological Milieu, Third Edition, is a comprehensively updated and expanded new edition of a classic text in the field. Including step-by-step technical details, Volume III describes technologies for yielding liposomes that can function in a targeted fashion, and highlights methods for studying the interaction of liposomes within the biological environment to be applied in the detection, therapy, or prevention of disease. 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.
