Abstract:BACKGROUND: The development of efficient drug delivery systems to transport therapeutics across barrier-forming cells remains a challenge. Recently it was shown that liposomes containing perifosine, a synthetic analog of lysophosphatidylcholine, efficiently deliver liposome encapsulated content across barrier-forming cells. METHODS: To elucidate the mechanism of the delivery, fluorescent and spin labeled analog of perifosine were synthesized and their transport from liposomes to the barrier-forming MDKC cells was measured. RESULTS & CONCLUSION: Perifosine analogs are rapidly transported from liposomes into cell membranes. The total amount of perifosine accumulated in plasma membranes seems to be the most important factor in efficient transepithelial transport of liposome-encapsulated substances. Lysolipid-containing liposomal formulations seem to be promising candidates as drug delivery systems in general.
