Liposomes are a very important part of any drug delivery system with many beneficial properties such as easy preparation, bilayer structure assembling the cellular membrane, and high biocompatibility. Extensive efforts have been dedicated to the use of cholesterol in liposome-based formulations.

Cholesterol, being an integral part of any biological membrane, plays a significant role in liposomal formulations. Liposomes with higher cholesterol content are highly stable.

According to a study by Ascension Sciences published in December 2020, parameters like stability, size, and encapsulation efficiency are used during liposome formulation. Stability of a liposome formulation is greatly influenced by the amount of cholesterol present. A higher percentage of cholesterol favors the development of larger liposomes with less encapsulation effectiveness and higher drug retention.

Despite various applications of liposomes, including diagnosis, food products, gene delivery, drug & vaccine delivery, and biosensor manufacturing, their use is severely constrained by their physicochemical instability. Cholesterol plays a crucial role in the stability of a liposomal membrane.

Moreover, cholesterol affects fluidity, drug retention, phospholipid packing, transition temperature (Tm), permeability, elasticity, membrane strength, and plasma stability. Researchers are set to use cholesterol as a promising substance for the stability of liposomes.

Owing to the aforementioned factors, the global cholesterol API market is set to gain traction over the forecast period.
