The aim of this study was to study the basic features of Taxol recognition with phospholipids by applying the thermodynamic and spectroscopic measurements. The obtained information could be used further for deductions on its precise cellular and pharmacological mechanisms of action, on improvements of its solubility properties by phospholipids, as well as for designing the novel lipidic carriers for drug delivery.
