      Abstract

Photo-sensitive liposomes have been studied for a few decades and various photo-sensitive triggers have been developed so far. This review offers an overview of the different photo-triggering mechanisms for controlled pulsatile content release from liposomes, which have the potential of finding clinical applications as intelligent drug delivery systems.
