Controlled drug delivery from suprofen incorporaed liposomes upon UV exposure: 

The aim of this study is to develop photosensitive liposomes that enable the responsive release of the content upon UV exposure. The design involves the encapsulation of drug (anti-cancer drug) in lipoid vesicles (PC: CHOL: SPF). Lipoid vesicles are prepared at different ratios of PC:CHOL:SPF and are characterized in terms of encapsulation efficiency and release rate in order to construct the most appropriate drug delivery system. Liposomes prepared are detected spectrophotomertically and spectroflourimetrically.
