Vesicles prepared from sucrose-palmitate-stearate and cholesterol encapsulating the anticancer drug methylglyoxal-bis-guanylhydrazone, were investigated. Treatment with drug-loaded vesicles of this composition in a q.d. 1-4 schedule resulted for murine leukemias P388 in nearly the same increase in life span as the corresponding dose of the free drug. Even very high dosages of sucrose-palmitase-stearate (up to 480 mg.kg-1.d-1) were tolerated by mice.
