Although hundreds of new agents with potential activity against a wide range of therapeutic targets in vitro are designed and synthesized, most of these new drugs fail to live up to their potential in the clinic due to their inability to show activity at target site. Liposomes characterize an advanced technology to deliver active molecules to the site of action, and at present, several formulations are in clinical use. They can encapsulate and effectively deliver both hydrophilic and lipophilic drug in aqueous media. Liposomes have been used to deliver anticancer agents in order to reduce the toxic effects of the drugs when given alone or to increase the circulation time and effectiveness of the drugs. This review summarizes the prospect and challenges of this drug delivery system, which hold the potential of delivering drug most effectively to the target site.
