Cationic lipid-based nanoparticulate systems are delivery systems that has been widely used in pharmaceutical field including gene delivery. There are many barriers obstructing genetic materials and their delivery systems to reach the target. Serum is one of the imperative factor that should be investigated. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine the effect of serum on DNA protection ability of spermine-liposomes and niosomes by evaluating the percentage of transfection efficiency in Hela cell and observing the DNA degradation band using agarose gel electrophoresis in the presence of serum. The results showed that the percentage of transfection efficiency of spermine-liposomes was dramatically decreased when serum is presented (p< 0.05). In contrast, whether or not the serum is presented, the spermine-niosomes showed no significant difference in transfection efficiency. Concisely, liposomes could slightly protect DNA from DNase in the serum, whereas, niosomes had potential ability to protect DNA from the enzymes in serum. This result revealed an advantage of the cationic niosomes system as a gene carrier over the cationic liposomes.
