Newly discovered compounds showing unique properties can have profound effect on development of medicine. As far as carbon is concerned, a discovery of great consequences for medicine was that of a new allotropic form of carbon known as fullerene. Recently, much interest has been paid to the application of carbon nanotubes as carriers of therapeutic drugs and biosensors in gene therapy or in anticancer therapy.

Keywords: Nanotubes, nanotechnology, medicine.
