Summary of "Safety Evaluation of Nano-Liposomal Formulation of Amphotericin B (Sina Ampholeish) in Animal Model as a Candidate for Treatment of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis."

Development of a topical treatment for cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is an important step in the improvement of lesion management. Amphotericin B (AmB) is effective against species but it is toxic, a Nano-liposomal form of AmB with a size of about 100nm (Lip-AmB) was developed and showed to be effective against , and and against in animal model. This study was designed to check the irritancy Draize test in rabbits and was completed in the Center for Research and Training in Skin Diseases and Leprosy, TUMS, in 2012.
