Carbon Nanotubes in Vaccine Delivery
Vaccines are medicines intended to produce a definite, active immune reaction in a host that will halt the onset of a disease or reduce the impact of a disease once it has instigated. In infectious illnesses state, almost every vaccine is given prophylactically. These techniques have offered a few of the most imperative improvements in human healthcare over the past century.
