Carbon nanomaterials have been extensively studied in different fields including nanomedicine, mainly for cancer therapy, and inflammatory diseases to a lower extent. Their biocompatibility and high surface area make them ideal carriers for the delivery of drugs, improving the pharmacokinetics and bioavailability of the drugs. This chapter gives an overview of the use of carbon nanomaterials for the delivery of anti-inflammatory drugs for the treatment of different inflammatory diseases.
