Liposomal hydrogel as a wound dressing provides a barrier that effectively prevents the contamination of the wound and further progression of infection to deeper tissues. The drug encapsulated within the liposomes increases the drug concentration locally and decreases systemic drug concentration and hydrogels combine the features of moist wound healing with good fluid absorbance. And act as a barrier against bacteria, oxygen permeability, it is easy to handle, hence it is useful as a moist wound dressing material. Besides hydrogels by nature of transparency promote monitoring of wound healing.

Keywords: Liposomal hydrogel, moist wound dressing material, wound healing.
