Carbon Nanotubes and their medical application
In medicine, carbon nanotubes found their place in the drug delivering 'industry', if you will. Seeing as carbon nanotubes are long tubes with a small diamiter, they are verry affective at penetrating cell tissue. This is made possible by their needle-like shape. They can help medications reach their intended place, be that a tumer or a wound. Senior lecturers and Kings College, London conducted an experiment with cancer inmammalian cells. They tried to deliver medication the traditional way, and they experimented whith the nanotubes as the carier. With the nanotubes, there was a big in rease in the amount of medication that arived at te destination. This is because nanotubes can penetrate cell tissue and the meds cant.
