Liposomes and corresponding production method

  • International Patent, WO/2013/084208, 2013


The present invention describes the use of conjugated peptide sequences enclosed in liposome membranes. Conjugation can be with a folic acid or an antibody of the folic acid receptor, which is coupled to the N-terminal of the peptide. The presence of these conjugated peptides in liposome formulations allows therapeutic agents and/or imaging agents to be specifically targetted to and subsequently released in cells with expression of folic acid receptors. The thus developed method allies the capacity of liposomes to transport and release drugs with the specific expression of receptors at the sur ...
