Cationic liposomes are structures that are made of positively charged lipids and are increasingly being researched for use in gene therapy due to their favourable interactions with negatively charged DNA and cell membranes. They can be administered efficiently, safely, and repeatedly for direct gene transfer for the treatment of human diseases. An ideal cationic liposome is capable of targeting tumor vessels and tumor cells.
