Schematic structure of a stable antibody–liposome encapsulating hydrophobic and hydrophilic drugs. Hydrophilic drugs like doxorubicin can be encapsulated in the aqueous compartment. Hydrophobic drugs like amphotericin B, paclitaxel, and docetaxel, can be encapsulated in the non-polar compartment. Liposome size varies between 20 nm to several hundred microns. Pharmacokinetics depends directly of the size (schematic image done with Adobe® Photoshop® CS6)
