This book examines stealth liposomes from a multidisciplinary approach, which includes theoretical polymer physics, organic synthesis, colloid science, and biology. Discussions include theory, chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, preclinical studies in model systems, and medical applications in humans.


…a valuable account of a developing technology that may, at long last, place liposomes on the map of successful drug delivery systems."

- J. Controlled Release, 35 (1995) 181-182
