Batten Down The Hatches Against HIV: Carbon Nanotubes Transport Gene Therapy Drug Into T-cells

A promising approach to gene therapy involves short DNA fragments (interfering RNA) that bind to specific genes and block their "translation" into the corresponding, disease-related protein. A stumbling block has been the efficient and targeted delivery of RNA into the cells. Researchers led by Hongjie Dai at Stanford University have sucessfully used carbon nanotubes as a "means of transport," they write in "Angewandte Chemie."
