Abstract

I. INTRODUCTION The major constituents of most liposomal products are phospholipids. Traditionally, Iiposomes have been prepared using naturally occurring phospholipids, though increasing sophistication, particularly in the formulation of liposomes for medical uses, has led to expanding inclusion of modified or synthetic phospholipids in liposomal products.
