Title:Synthetic liposomes for enhanced uptake and delivery
Publication Type:United States Utility Patent
Publication Date:Apr 30, 1996
Filing Date:Nov 10, 1994
Inventors:Kornberg Arthur, Castuma Celina
Assignee:The Board Of Trustees Of The Leland Stanford Junior University
Abstract:Liposomes are prepared comprising a polyhydroxybutyrate calcium polyphosphate complex which provides for uptake of a desired component, particularly nucleotides and nucleic acids. The charged species may be introduced into the lumen of a liposome by incubating liposomes with a solution of the component of interest for sufficient time to provide for introduction of the component into the lumen of the liposome, followed by washing at diminished temperatures. The resulting liposomes may then be used as vehicles for delivery of the lumen component.
