Abstract

Background: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) show great promise as theranostic agents due to their drug delivery properties, intrinsic near-infrared radiation-responsiveness, and magnetic functionalization. However, temperature elevation caused by these external stimuli during drug delivery should be considered for the evaluation of CNT-based systems loaded with temperature-sensitive biomolecules.
