1996; Templeton et al. 1997). Templeton et al. (1997) developed a unique cationic lipid structure, so-called BIV, using DOTAP, cholesterol and a novel formulation procedure. Nucleic acids are efficiently encapsulated between two bilamellar invaginated structures, BIVs. This procedure is different because it includes a brief, low-frequency sonication followed by manual extrusion through filters of decreasing pore size. 2-mm filters 30 K. Maruyama consist of aluminum oxide membranes that contain a large number of pores per surface area, including evenly spaced and sized pores, and pores with straight channels.

1998; Perrie and Gregoriadis 2000) have developed a dehydration-rehydration method to entrap plasmid DNA into liposomes. This is consistent with the notion that most of the DNA is incorporated within multilamellar vesicles and largely protected from nucleases by the bilayers. The potential of applying such liposome DNA carriers as oral delivery system for DNA vaccines was also assessed. Wheeler et al. (1999) established “stabilized plasmid-lipid particles” (SPLP), produced by detergent dialysis employing a POPC/DODAC/PEG-CerC20 lipid mixture.
