The effects of quercetin-loaded liposomes (PCL-Q) and their constituents, that is, free quercetin (Q) and 'empty' phosphatidylcholine vesicles (PCL), on maxi-K channel activity were studied in single mouse ileal myocytes before and after H2 O2 -induced oxidative stress. Macroscopic Maxi-K channel currents were recorded using whole-cell patch clamp techniques, while single BKCa channel currents were recorded in the cell-attached configuration. Bath application of PCL-Q (100 μg/ml of lipid and 3 μg/ml of quercetin) increased single Maxi-K channel activity more than threefold, from 0...

In this study the anticancer activity of paclitaxel-loaded nano-liposomes on glioma cell lines was investigated. Soya phosphatidylcholine:cholesterol (SPC:Chol), hydrogenated soya phosphatidylcholine:cholesterol (HSPC:Chol) or dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine:cholesterol (DPPC:Chol) in 1:1 mole ratio were used to prepare ethanol-based proliposomes. Following hydration of proliposomes, the size of resulting vesicles was subsequently reduced to nanometer scale via probe-sonication. The resulting formulations were characterized in terms of size, zeta potential and morphology of the vesicles, and entrapment efficiency of paclitaxel (PX) as well as the final pH of the preparations...

Quality by design principles (QbD) were used to assist the formulation of prednisolone-loaded long-circulating liposomes (LCL-PLP) in order to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the preparation process. This approach enables us to improve the final product quality in terms of liposomal drug concentration, encapsulation efficiency and size, and to minimize preparation variability. A 19-run D-optimal experimental design was used to study the impact of the highest risk factors on PLP liposomal concentration (Y1 - μg/ml), encapsulation efficiency (Y2 -%) and size (Y3 -nm)...

Liposomal delivery constitutes a promising approach for i.v. administration of temoporfin (mTHPC) because lipid membranes can host these drug molecules. This study investigates the transfer and release of mTHPC to plasma proteins and stability of various liposomal formulations. To this end, we employed traces of radioactive markers and studied the effects of fatty acid chain length and the degree of saturation in the lipophilic tail, addition of cholesterol and PEGylation of the membrane surface and different drug-to-lipid ratios (DLRs)...

Skin is considered the most accessible organ of the body because of its underlying capillary network. However, stratum corneum (SC), the upper most layer of skin, represents major diffusional barrier for most drugs. Hence, the use of edge activators (EAs) in designing novel elastic vesicles is hypothesized to impart their lipid bilayer with ultra-flexibility to trespass SC by high self-optimizing deformability. To confirm this hypothesis, this work aimed at developing novel bilosomes by modulating conventional niosomal composition using different bile salts as EAs and investigating their superiority over niosomes for transdermal delivery of diacerein (DCN), as model drug...

Liposome supported peritoneal dialysis is a recently described technique which may eventually be applicable in the clinical scenario of the intoxicated patient. We evaluated the hypothesis that intravenous injection of lipid emulsion (ILE) would augment acidic pH gradient liposome supported peritoneal dialysis (LSPD). Orogastrically amitriptyline dosed rats were treated with either Sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) intravenously and standard intraperitoneal dialysate (Group A); NaHCO3 intravenously and LSPD (Group B); or ILE and LSPD (Group C)...
