Temporary tattoos that deliver nanoparticles to treat multiple sclerosis are under development.
Scientists are investigating a way to use temporary tattoos that deliver nanoparticles to treat autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis.
“Placed just under the skin, the carbon-based particles form a dark spot that fades over about one week as they are slowly released into the circulation,” says Christine Beeton, a scientist at Baylor College of Medicine.
The tiny particles, modified with polyethylene glycol, are conveniently choosy as they are taken up by cells in the immune system.
