Liposome Technology, Second Edition, is an updated, expanded new edition of a classic volume in the field. It covers all aspects of liposome technology, including liposome preparation and analysis, drug entrapment, and techniques used for in vivo and in vitro evaluation of liposomes. Leading authorities have contributed 70 chapters to create what is destined to be the standard liposome technology book for the 1990s. Many of the chapters describe methodologies practiced in authors' laboratories and provide specific examples of how these methodologies are applied in specific circumstances.
Liposome Technology, Second Edition will be an essential reference volume for academic and industrial researchers in pharmacology, pharmacy, medicine, biochemistry, and immunology.
What's new in the 2nd Edition?
The 2nd Edition covers significant developments in liposome technology that have occurred since the publication of the 1st Edition in 1982. These developments include the following:
