Methods for Loading Contrast Agents Into a Liposome
The invention comprises compositions and methods for loading both magnetic resonance contrast agents and therapeutic agents into liposomes, such as low temperature sensitive liposomes (LTSLs). In certain embodiments, a passive technique is used to load the liposomes. In other embodiments, an active technique is used to load the liposomes. In further embodiments, a magnetic resonance contrast agent and Doxorubicin are loaded into the liposomes. The liposome compositions have higher contrast-agent loadings and are more stable, than those known in the art.
