    DMD Tattoo for MSers?

    Read an interesting article out of Baylor University in Texas. Scientists at Baylor College of Medicine tested antioxidant nanoparticles created at Rice University and found they were taken up by cells in the immune system.

    The carbon-based particles form a dark spot that fades over about one week as they are slowly released into the circulation. What is proposed is that MSers would be given a temporary tattoo for their medicinal dosage. After about a week, the temporary tattoo would fade and disappear. When another dosage or treatment is needed, another "tattoo" would be provided.

    This is still coming down the pipeline, but if testing trials begin, perhaps this is of interest to MSers who might benefit from the antioxidant treatment. The information did not indicate the size of the tattoo, but they have already indicated that a variety of "designs" could be prepared.
