  • Publication number: 20050031679
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing liposomes which comprise as active ingredient at least one physiologically active or/and diagnostic compound, by production of a mixture of membrane-forming amphiphiles, dispersion of the mixture in water and high pressure homogenization of the dispersion until the liposomes are formed, wherein (a) the mixture is adjusted to result in a liposome preparation containing at least 20% by weight lipids, (b) the active ingredient is added to this liposome preparation and (c) the active ingredient-containing mixture is incubated with mechanical agitation until at least 10% of the liposomes have a content of the active ingredient, the temperature being controlled so that negligible phospholipid hydrolysis occurs, but diffusion is increased.

  • Publication number: 20030229037
    Abstract: A cationic amphiphile for facilitating transport of a biologically active molecule into a cell has the structure A-F-D, in which A is a lipid anchor, D is a head group, and F is a spacer group having the structure described herein. A method for facilitating transport of a biologically active molecule into a cell comprises preparing a lipid mixture comprising a cationic amphiphile having structure A-F-D, preparing a lipoplex by contacting the lipid mixture with a biologically active molecule; and contacting the lipoplex with a cell, thereby facilitating transport of the biologically active molecule into the cell.
