Abstract:


Carbon nanotubes (CNT) are the allotropes of carbon in nanosize rendering them popular in the field of medicines. These nano-based technologies are gaining interest in the treatment of disease which was previously seemed to be impossible for treating. CNT gained significance in the treatment of the majority of disorders such as Malaria, Alzheimer’s disease, Infectious disease, Asthma. Patients responsiveness has increased in cardiovascular, pulmonary diseases. To date, the number of reviews available in the literature covering applications of CNT in the cancer disease. However, the purpose of this review is to focus on the use of carbon nanotubes in drug delivery of non-cancerous disease. The novelty of this review is it is focused on the applicability of CNT in the various non-cancerous diseases. Detailed information gathered from the past literature can guide and encourage researchers to explore the applicability of CNT in various non-cancerous diseases in the future.
