Table 1 Invasome advantages and disadvantages

From: Smart invasome synthesis, characterizations, pharmaceutical applications, and pharmacokinetic perspective: a review

Advantages Disadvantages
1. It is a non-invasive drug delivery technique. 1. It requires a high cost for production
2. It enhances the penetration rate of actives. 2. Chance of leakage and fusion of encapsulated active.
3. Targeted drug delivery of hydrophilic and lipophilic drugs is possible.
4. More patient compliance (cream/gel). 3. Invasome containing phospholipids may get oxidized/hydrolyzed and affect the stability of vesicles.
5. Invasome contains non-toxic excipients.
