Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) possess exceptional mechanical and electrical properties, therefore researches and developments are performed in various fields. In recent years application to the medical field of CNTs attracted attention, and a large number of studies have begun to be performed. An applied study to cancer diagnosis and treatment, and a study to use for scaffold for regenerative medicine, besides, a study to compound in CNTs for the improvement of the function and durability of conventional biomaterials. In the applied study that properties of all CNTs were fully made use of in, development in the future is expected. In this review, we state it about the contents of a performed study for medical application of CNTs now, and introduce in particular the basic studies that are performed to apply CNTs to biomaterials in detail.
