Abstract

Achieving adequate dosage of a drug to be effective, without crossing the line into toxicity, can be a problem. This paper reviews ongoing research into methods of delivering drugs only to diseased tissue or cells, minimally affecting surrounding tissue. In particular, the author discusses encapsulating drugs in liposomes (artificial phospholipid microcapsules) which will only bind to certain cells.
