@[Marinelle Castro] yes I totally agreed with you. I feel that nanoparticle patches will be a much better choice considering the facts you mentioned. Having said that there might be few issues for using nanoparticle patches like not reaching the potential dose of the drug into the system or may have to use higher amount of drug to get the desired effect. But it might be more or less same for tattooing also. It might be a challenge for the scientists, but yet these unorthodox techniques and inven...

Not only MS, the researchers suggest that a temporary tattoo containing antioxidant nanoparticles may help treat the other autoimmune diseases too. The researches say that these nanoparticles will be released slowly into the circulation and they will be internalised into T cells which play key role in auto...
