One of the most promising applications of nanotechnology is that of drug delivery, and in particular the targeted delivery of drugs using nanotubes. Functionalized nanotubes might be able to target specific cells, become ingested, and then release their contents in response to a chemical trigger. This will have significant implications for the future treatment of patients, particularly those suffering from cancer, for whom presently the nonspecific nature of chemotherapy often kills healthy… CONTINUE READING
