Lipid crystallization is ubiquitous in nature, observed in biological structures as well as in commercial products and applications. In a dehydrated state most of the lipids form well ordered crystals, whereas in an aqueous environment they self-assemble into various crystalline...

Lipid-based particles are used worldwide in clinical trials as carriers of hydrophobic paclitaxel (PTXL) for cancer chemotherapy, albeit with little improvement over the standard-of-care. Improving efficacy requires an understanding of intramembrane interactions between PTXL and lipids to enhance PTXL solubilization...

We demonstrate a method by which we can produce an oriented film of an inverse bicontinuous cubic phase (Q(II)(D)) formed by the lipid monoolein (MO). By starting with the lipid as a disordered precursor (the L(3) phase) in the presence...

High-throughput methodologies have been employed to establish structure-property relationships and assess the effectiveness of nonionic steric stabilizers for inverse bicontinuous cubic lyotropic liquid crystalline nanoparticulate dispersions of monoolein and phytantriol. The ability of the stabilizers to disperse the lipids was...

To develop liquid crystalline phases with monoglycerides, and assess whether the monoglyceride type favors cutaneous over transdermal paclitaxel delivery. BRIJ-based lamellar phases were prepared with 0.5% paclitaxel and 20% of either monocaprylin (LP-MC), monomyristolein (LP-MM) or monoolein (LP-MO). Skin electrical...
