Due to their high safety to human bodies, phospholipids are widely used as additives for pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. In fact, liposome is a representative carrier for drug delivery system. However, industrial production and quality control of liposome is not easy because of its non-equilibrium nature, and its effective use was limited to injectable formulations. We have developed a method for preparing mesoporous phospholipid particle (MPP). Due to its simplicity, industrial production of MPP is expected to be easy. MPP is applicable for various solid dosage forms. In this article, its function as a carrier for oral delivery of poorly soluble drug is introduced. MPP is expected to be a novel DDS platform carrier.
