Ammonium bicarbonate (ABC) liposomes can only release drugs extracellularly while intracellular drug delivery could be more promising than extracellular release in chemotherapy. The purpose of this work was to endow the ABC liposomes with tumor-triggered targeting effect, to realize the intracellular drug release and retain the long circulation characteristics of the liposomes. The tumor-triggered targeting ABC (TT-ABC) liposomes were proposed to improve uptake of tumor cells owing to folate (FA) - specific binding...

Hypoxia is a characteristic feature of solid tumors and an important cause of resistance to radiotherapy. Hypoxic cell radiosensitizers have been shown to increase radiotherapy efficacy, but dose-limiting side effects prevent their widespread use in the clinic. We propose the encapsulation of hypoxic cell radiosensitizers in temperature-sensitive liposomes (TSL) to target the radiosensitizers specifically to tumors and to avoid unwanted accumulation in healthy tissues. The main objective of the present study is to develop and characterize TSL loaded with the radiosensitizer pimonidazole (PMZ) and to evaluate the in vitro efficacy of free PMZ and PMZ encapsulated in TSL in combination with hyperthermia and radiotherapy...

Multifunctional theranostic nanoplatforms (NPs) in response to environment stimulations for on-demand drug release are highly desirable. Herein, the near-infrared (NIR)-absorbing dye, indocyanine green (ICG) and the antitumor drug, doxorubicin (DOX) were efficiently co-encapsulated into the thermosensitive liposomes based on natural phase change material (PCM). Folate and conjugated gadolinium chelate-modified liposome shells enhance active targeting and magnetic resonance (MR) performance of the NPs while maintaining the size of the NPs...

Understanding the lateral organization of biological membranes plays a key role on the road to fully appreciate the physiological functions of this fundamental barrier between the inside and outside regions of a cell. Ternary lipid bilayers composed of a high and a low melting temperature lipid and cholesterol represent a model system that mimics some of the important thermodynamical features of much more complex lipid mixtures such as those found in mammal membranes. The phase diagram of these ternary mixtures can be studied exploiting fluorescence microscopy in giant unilamellar vesicles, and it is typically expected to give rise, for specific combinations of composition and temperature, to regions of two-phase coexistence and a region with three-phase coexistence, namely, the liquid-ordered, liquid-disordered, and solid phases...

The mechanism of drug release from complex dosage forms, such as multivesicular liposomes (MVLs), is complex and oftentimes sensitive to the release environment. This challenges the design and development of an appropriate in vitro release test (IVRT) method. In this study, a commercial bupivacaine MVL product was selected as a model product and an IVRT method was developed using a modified USP 2 apparatus in conjunction with reverse-dialysis membranes. This setup allowed the use of in situ UV-Vis probes to continuously monitor the drug concentration during release...

Nanoparticles (NPs) have proven to be effective drug carriers in diagnosis and therapy of cancer. But, they faced a contradictory issue that NPs with large size appear weak tumor penetration, meanwhile small size resulted in poor tumor retention. Herein, we fabricated doxorubicin conjugated carbon dots (CDs-DOX) and indocyanine green (ICG)-loaded liposomes (ICG-LPs) named CDs-ICG-LPs using a modified reverse phase evaporation process, and with high incorporation in the aqueous core. The CDs-ICG-LPs exhibited good monodispersity, excellent fluorescence/size stability, and consistent spectra characteristics compared with free ICG or DOX...

Temperature sensitive liposomes (TSL) are a promising type of nanoparticles for localized drug delivery. TSL typically release the contained drug at mild hyperthermic temperatures (40-42 °C). Combined with localized hyperthermia, this allows for local drug delivery. In vitro characterization of TSL involves measurements of drug release at varying temperatures, but current methods are inadequate due to low temporal resolution of ~8 - 10 seconds. We present a novel method for measuring the drug release with sub-second temporal resolution...

The primary aim of liposomal drug delivery is to wisely modulate the drug delivery system in order to target diseased tissues. Temperature-sensitive liposomes function as a prospective weapon to combat toxic side effects corresponding to direct infusion of anticancer drugs. The main objective of the present study is to model liposomal drug release, subsequent drug transport in solid tumour along with integrated actions of tumour cell surface and endosomal events. Generalized mathematical model for liposomal drug delivery is proposed in which vital physical phenomena, such as kinetics of liposome-encapsulated drug, free drug release from liposomes, transport of both liposomal drug and free drug into the tumour compartment, plasma clearance, protein-drug interactions, drug-tumour cell receptor interactions, internalization of drug through endocytosis along with corresponding endosomal events...

This study reports the interaction of indole-3-carbinol (I3C), which is a chemopreventive reagent, with an artificial model membrane {(dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) multilamellar vesicles (MLVs)}, using the intrinsic fluorescence properties of I3C, extrinsic fluorescence properties of Nile Red (NR), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), dynamic light scattering (DLS), and confocal microscopy. The intrinsic fluorescence of I3C helps to provide information about its location, partitioning ability, and sensitivity toward the phase-transition temperature of liposomes, confirmed by cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC) quenching study, partition coefficient values {(4...

Background: Enhancing drug delivery to the skin has importance in many therapeutic strategies. In particular, the outcome in vascularized composite allotransplantation mainly depends on systemic immunosuppression to prevent and treat episodes of transplant rejection. However, the side effects of systemic immunosuppression may introduce substantial risk to the patient and are weighed against the expected benefits. Successful enhancement of delivery of immunosuppressive agents to the most immunogenic tissues would allow for a reduction in systemic doses, thereby minimizing side effects...

Using attenuated Salmonella that efficiently homes in solid tumors, here we developed thermobots that actively transported membrane attached low-temperature sensitive liposome (LTSL) inside colon cancer cells for triggered doxorubicin release and simultaneous polarized macrophages to M1 phenotype with high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) heating (40-42 °C). Biocompatibility studies showed that the synthesized thermobots were highly efficient in LTSL loading without impacting its viability. Thermobots demonstrated efficient intracellular trafficking, high nuclear localization of doxorubicin, and induced pro-inflammatory cytokine expression in colon cancer cells in vitro...

Thiol lysolipids undergo thiol-thioester exchange with two phenyl thioester-functionalized tails to produce phospholipid structures that assemble into liposomes with differences in exchange rates, temperature sensitivity, permeability, and continued exchange behavior. This in situ formation reaction imparts dynamic characteristics into the membrane for downstream liposome functionalization and mimics native membrane remodeling.

Light triggered drug delivery systems offer attractive possibilities for sophisticated therapy, providing both temporal and spatial control of drug release. We have developed light triggered liposomes with clinically approved indocyanine green (ICG) as the light sensitizing compound. Amphiphilic ICG can be localized in different compartments of the liposomes, but the effect of its presence, on both triggered release and long term stability, has not been studied. In this work, we report that ICG localization has a significant effect on the properties of the liposomes...

Antitumor peptides may potentially alleviate the problem of chemoresistance but do not yet target tumor cells and would be cytotoxic to normal cells. Here, we designed a pH-activated and thermosensitive lipopeptide (C6-Pep) containing a leucine zipper and an alkyl chain and assessed the ability of C6-Pep to kill cancer cells. Pep, the same sequence without the N-terminal hexanoic acid moiety, was generated as a less hydrophobic control. First, lipopeptide adsorption into lipid monolayers was studied using Langmuir-Blodgett and polarization modulation infrared reflection adsorption spectroscopy...

Thermochemotherapy exhibits a synergistic therapeutic efficiency for cancer, and the sensitivity of cancer cells to chemical drugs could be increased to a large extent at elevated temperature. In this work, a biocompatible nanocomposite thermosensitive mesoporous carbon nanoparticles (TSMCN) was prepared by covering a liposome on mesoporous carbon nanoparticles (MCN). The TSMCN had good photothermal efficiency and photostability. The doxorubicin (DOX)-loaded TSMCN (DOX/TSMCN) showed a slower release than the DOX-loaded MCN-COOH (DOX/MCN-COOH) both in simulated tumor environment and physiological environment...

Magnetoliposomes (ML) have been emerging as a novel multifunctional nanoparticle with a wide range of biomedical and therapeutic applications over the past decade. Although the ML system has shown excellent performances, the stability and lipid peroxidation of liposomal components are still remaining as key issues and need to be solved for intensive applications. Changing zeta potential of nanoparticles' surface can be seen as a potential way to achieve the stable dispersion. In this work, we have employed the positive charged, abundant and cheap chitosan to coat ML in order to change the zeta potential of the ML system and examined the stability of chitosan@magnetoliposomes (CML) in long-term storage...

Most drugs cannot penetrate the blood-brain barrier (BBB), greatly limiting the use of anti-cancer agents for brain cancer therapy. Temperature sensitive liposomes (TSL) are nanoparticles that rapidly release the contained drug in response to hyperthermia (>40 °C). Since hyperthermia also transiently opens the BBB, we hypothesized that localized hyperthermia can achieve drug delivery across the BBB when combined with TSL. TSL-encapsulated doxorubicin (TSL-Dox) was infused intravenously over 30 min at a dose of 0...
