Abstract : An improved method is provided for the chemotherapy of leishmanial infections. The anti-leishmanial agent is encapsulated within liposomes and the liposome-encapsulated drug is injected into the body. Subject use of a liposome carrier has produced marked enhancement of the effectiveness and duration of anti-leishmanial action of meglumine antimoniate, and of sodium sibogluconate, drugs which are recommended widely for therapy of leishmaniasis.
