Carbon Nanotubes as an Effective Opportunity for Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

  title={Carbon Nanotubes as an Effective Opportunity for Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment},
  author={Alessandro Sanginario and Beatrice Miccoli and Danilo Demarchi},
Despite the current progresses of modern medicine, the resistance of malignant tumors to present medical treatments points to the necessity of developing new therapeutic approaches. In recent years, numerous studies have focused their attention on the promising use of nanomaterials, like iron oxide nanowires, zinc oxide or mesoporous silica nanoparticles, for cancer and metastasis treatment with the advantage of operating directly at the bio-molecular scale. Among them, carbon nanotubes emerged… CONTINUE READING
