Novel drug delivery systems (NDDS) delivered the active molecules to the target site in a defined manner for produce the desired effects without disturbing the delicate bio-environment. Among many available colloidal drug delivery systems, Liposomes (a class based on phospholipids) have attracted more attention than other systems due to many meritorious features such as excellent chemical & biological stability, good solubilisation power, promote intracellular delivery of bio-active molecules, reduce the uptake of macrophages and encapsulate both hydrophilic as well as lipophillic drug molecule. In this review article, I try to give some basic knowledge about these carrier systems in tabular form, which is more understandable concept as compared to simple text form.


Cell delivery, drug targeting, gene delivery, liposome, phospholipids.
