Maruyama Fig. 1. Schematic illustration of the immobilization of antibody on liposomes. Type A: PEG-free immunoliposomes with antibody covalently linked to the short anchor N-glutaryl-phosphatidylethanolamine (NGPE); type B: PEG-immunoliposomes with antibody covalently linked to NGPE; type C: PEG-immunoliposomes with antibody attached to the distal terminal of distearoyl-N-(3-carboxypropionoyl poly(ethylene glycol) succinyl) phosphatidylethanolamine (DSPE-PEG-COOH), -maleimide or -hydorazide, so-called pendant-type PEG-immunoliposomes A major development in the last few years has been the synthesis of liposomes with a prolonged circulation time in blood, commonly called long-circulating or sterically stabilized liposomes.
