Paper Abstract

The silicon naphthalocyanine isoBoSiNc was studied with regard to its photosensitizing properties when carried in the following vehicles: chreinophore, Tween 80 and liposoiaes of various composition. Encapsulation of the sensitizer in liposomes was complicated by the drug's tendency to aggregate, and was successful only at very high lipid: isoBoSiNc ratios. Encapsulation efficiency was low. Liposoinal delivery of the sensitizer in vivo did not seem to significantly improve the biologic response when compared to other vehicles.
