A temporary tattoo that contains nanoparticles of antioxidants can help treat autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis in the future, says a new study.
The study led by Christine Beeton at Baylor College of Medicine in the US It shows that the nanoparticles modified with polyethylene glycol (PEG) are conveniently demanding, since they are taken up by cells of the immune system.
that could be an advantage for patients with autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, researchers said.
“placed under the skin, the carbon-based particles form a dark stain fades for about a week, and slowly released into the circulation,” Beeton said.T and B lymphocyte cells and macrophages are key components of the immune system.However, autoim MUNE in many diseases such as multiple sclerosis, T cells are the main protagonists. One possible cause is that T cells lose their ability to distinguish between healthy tissue and invaders and attack them.
“The ability to selectively inhibit a cell type over others in the same environment can help doctors more control over autoimmune diseases,” Beeton
