The schematic illustration of the strategies. For the studies on the best use of CNTs as drug carriers. The best treatment effects are in the center of the strategies that are the ultimate purpose of our studies, which can be achieved by the studies of three effects: the weighing between treatment effects and the side or toxic effects, the pharmacological mechanism that makes it possible to use the advantages to outmost and the toxicological mechanism that makes people capable of decreasing or avoiding the side or toxic effects.
