Abstract: Deformable liposomes were prepared to investigate the effectiveness of dermal administration of methotrexate (MTX). The phospholipids used to prepare the liposomes were soybean lecithin (PC) or hydrogenated lecithin (HPC) and dipotassium glycyrrhizinate (KG) as surfactant. The lipid/KG ratio (w/w) was 2:1 and 4:1. Liposomes size, entrapment efficiency and MTX release through dialysis membrane were determined and the interaction between MTX and liposomes was investigated using differential scanning calorimetry.…
