Functionalized single walled or multi-walled carbon nanotubes (f-CNTs) can be delivered into mammals to targeted organs, such as the kidney and the liver. These f-CNTs may be non-covalently linked or covalently linked to therapeutic agents. In particular, the application delivers carbon nanotube-therapeutic agent conjugates to a target organ, thereby preventing or reducing damages to the organ caused by other agents or procedure.
