Thermophilic Archaeal Lipids Stabilize Drug-Delivery Liposomes

The possibility of using lipids extracted from microorganisms adapted to living in conditions of extreme heat and acidity to form liposomes for oral drug-delivery, which would able to survive passage through the harsh conditions of the stomach, was discussed in a recent paper.  More...
