Abstract

Recently, the use of liposomes loaded with magnetic nanoparticles (magnetoliposomes, (MLs)) has been intensely growing as a new drug delivery system. With the use of alternating magnetic fields, it is possible to remotely control the delivery of a drug or any other macromolecule loaded inside the MLs. In this experiment, the release of a fluorescent dye from MLs is achieved through an alternating magnetic field of 20kHz and amplitude below 100A/m, and without a macroscopic temperature increase.
