The complete list of published studies in which our clodronate liposomes were used.
Here are a few useful references of the first publications on the depletion of phagocytic cells in various organs and tissues by use of clodronate liposomes. Further, the list includes reviews about the mechanism of clodronate liposome mediated apoptosis of macrophages, its applications in macrophage research, possible therapeutic applications and preparation of clodronate liposomes.
