Can carbon nanotubes act as nanosyringes?

Abstract:
Researchers seeking to develop carbon nanotubes for biomedical applications have moved forward in their quest by showing that the tiny structures can effectively cross biological barriers, enabling their use in the delivery of drug therapies. Researchers at The School of Pharmacy, University of London, have shown that carbon nanotubes which have been chemically modified with a variety of different functional groups are able to enter a wide range of cell types, including human cancer cells.
