Abstract

Author(s): Srinivas Lankalapalli* and Madhupriya Damuluri

Sphingosomes are vesicular drug delivery systems in which an aqueous volume is entirely enclosed with sphingolipid bilayer membranes. Sphingolipids are developed as bioeffector molecules, which regulate cell growth, proliferation and anti-cancer therapeutics. Sphingosomes have become an enhanced area of interest because of their applicability in improving the in vivodelivery of various chemotherapeutic agents, biological macromolecules and diagnostics. The present review emphasizes on the applicability of sphingosomes in drug delivery technology.
