Carbon nanotubes show drug delivery promise

Abstract:
Carbon nanotubes are adept at entering the nuclei of cells, researchers have discovered, and may one day be used to deliver drugs and vaccines. The modified nanotubes have so far only been used to ferry a small peptide into the nuclei of fibroblast cells. But the researchers are hopeful that the technique may one day form the basis for new anti-cancer treatments, gene therapies and vaccines.
