  1. 1. Liposomes for Drug Delivery : from Physico-chemical Studies to Applications

    Author : Nill Bergstrand; Katarina Edwards; Felix M Goni; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; liposome; steric stabilisation; BNCT; cryo-TEM; EGF; targeting; stability; permeability; pH-sensitive liposomes; triggered release; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry; fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : Physico-chemical characterisation of structure and stability of liposomes intended for drug delivery is the central issue in this thesis. In addition, targeted liposomes to be used in boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) were developed.Lysolipids and fatty acids are products formed upon hydrolysis of PC-lipids. READ MORE

  2. 2. Liposomes for mucosal vaccine delivery: physicochemical characterization and biological application

    Author : Karin Norling; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nanoparticles; vaccine carriers; antigen presentation; dendritic cells; surface plasmon resonance; flow cytometry; liposomes; cellular uptake; fluorescence microscopy; influenza;

    Abstract : Liposomes are attractive vaccine carriers due to their potential to act as adjuvants, and to the fact that their composition and characteristics are virtually endlessly customizable. However, the precise physicochemical profile of an ideal carrier liposome for mucosal vaccines is still widely unknown, and how different properties affect key steps in the acquisition of protective immunity remains to be elucidated.

  3. 3. Two-Step Targeting for Effective Radionuclide Therapy : Preclinical Evaluation of 125I-labelled Anthracycline Delivered by Tumour Targeting Liposomes

    Author : Amelie Fondell; Lars Gedda; Detlef Gabel; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; radionuclide; Auger electrons; liposomes; targeting; tumour therapy; Biomedical Radiation Science; Biomedicinsk strålningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : For the treatment of cancer, Auger-electron emitting radionuclides are strongly dependent on their close proximity to DNA to utilize the local therapeutic potential of the Auger electrons. This thesis investigates a two-step targeting approach that uses targeting liposomes for the delivery of an Auger-electron emitter, 125I, coupled to a DNA-binding compound, Comp1, to the tumour-cell DNA.

  4. 4. Equilibrium and Kinetic Studies of the Binding of DNA to Cationic Liposomes

    Author : Paula Barreleiro; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Small-Angle Neutron Scattering; Fluorescence; Kinetics; Stopped-Flow; Differential Scanning Calorimetry; Titration Calorimetry; Gel-to-Liquid Crystalline Phase Transition; Lamellar phase; Lipolexes; DNA; Liposomes; Cryo-TEM; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : The objective of this work was to study the formation of DNA-cationic vesicle complexes (lipoplexes). These complexes are interesting not only from a fundamental point of view but also as promising candidates for gene therapy. The approach taken was to study first the cationic vesicles by themselves.

  5. 5. Structure and stability of liposomes : Interactions with micelle- forming surfactants

    Author : Mats Silvander; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Fysik; Physics; Fysik; Physical Chemistry; fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : The stability of phospholipid lipomes interacting with micelle-forming surfactants was studied under physiological conditions (150 mM NaCl and pH=7.4 unless otherwise stated) mainly by use of cryo-TEM and fluorescence. READ MORE
