Liposomes are most placed acquiring in pharma industries and very useful in the various drug delivery system used to target the drug to particular tissue. Because of structural similarity between lipid bilayer (two layer) and cell membrane, liposome can easily penetrate effectively deliver drug to such that a free drug would not easily penetrate. Liposomes can be also encapsulate in both hydrophilic and hydrophobic materials, and are utilized as drug carriers in drug delivery. This technology is very useful for the treatment of certain diseases. Now a day’s most of the researcher attraction and interest will increase for that technology i.e. Liposomes. Main object of this review this technology i.e. Liposomes very useful in certain disease and easily prepare and also give various advantages other than. Liposomes are highly biocompatible, with applications ranging from delivering enzymes, antibacterial, antiviral drugs, antiparasite drugs, transdermal transporters, fungicides, diagnostic tools and adjuvant for vaccines. This paper mainly focus on exclusively scalable techniques and also focus on strength, respectively, limitations in respect to industrial applicability and regulatory requirements concerning liposomal drug formulations based on FDA and EMEA documents.
