Special Issue Information
Over the last years, technology applied to therapeutics has been extensively used in order to provide feasible alternatives to the use of burdensome, but extremely effective, molecules. Highly lipophilic compounds have challenged researchers in the academia and in the industry to develop formulations that can overcome drawbacks such as drug content, poor bioavailability, instability, toxicity and several others. Hence, lipid-based dispersed systems, based on synthetic or natural oils, are advantageous alternatives to drug delivery. This special issue is dedicated to publish innovative and relevant research in the field of development, characterization, stability and biological activity evaluation of lipid-based dispersed systems. Among such complex systems, the special issue will consider, but not limit its range to, micelles, emulsions, nanoemulsions, microemulsions, micro and nanocapsules, solid lipid nanoparticles, liposomes and other vesicles.
