A report on the safe clinical use of carbon nanotubes (CNT) as biomaterials submitted by the group of Professor Naoto Saito, Director of the Institute for Biomedical Sciences in the Interdisciplinary Cluster for Cutting Edge Research at Shinshu University, has recently been published in "Chemical Reviews," the official journal of the American Chemical Society. The impact factor of Chemical Reviews, which is indicative of the journal's influence, is the 3rd highest in the world at an authoritative 45.661.

The paper provides a comprehensive safety evaluation of biomaterials using CNTs for the purpose of clinical applications along with a summary of other relevant research conducted and published at Shinshu University, and presents an overall approach for CNT safety in clinical use. This report is expected to advance global research on the adoption of CNTs in biomaterials and springboard the development of innovative medical technologies and their safe clinical application.
