Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Lipid-based nanoparticulate drug delivery systems (i.e., liposomes, nanostructured lipid carriers, solid lipid nanoparticles, niosomes, etc.) have captured significant attention at both preclinical and clinical levels due to their advantageous characteristics, including biocompatibility, safety, scaling up feasibility, as well as their promising biopharmaceutical performance and therapeutic outcomes. Lipid-based nanosystems are suitable carriers for various types of cargo—drugs, phytoconstituents, nucleic acids, and monoclonal antibodies—and are capable of improving their unfavorable physicochemical/pharmacokinetic characteristics and stability issues. These nanoscale systems exhibit the potential to enhance drug bioavailability, to provide a controlled release profile, and to achieve targeted delivery via suitable surface tailoring by tuning their physicochemical characteristics at the (pre)formulation stage.

This Special Issue aims to summarize recent advances in lipid-based nanoparticulate drug delivery systems to highlight some of the future directions in this research area. Submissions of original research and review articles demonstrating progress in the field are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Pharmaceutics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
