Tattoos Could Be Future Vaccines - Online Article

A tattoo can be more than just a fashion statement. Tattooing is an invasive procedure done with a solid vibrating needle causing a wound and sufficient inflammation to prime the immune system.

German scientist believe tattooing promises better vaccines for everything from flu to cancer. Using a coat protein from the HPV the cause of cervical cancer as a model DNA vaccine antigen. Tattoo method gave stronger antibody response and cellular response than intramuscular injection. Tattooing produced atleast 16 times higher antibody levels with adjuvant.

Muller said vaccination with naked DNA has been hampered by its low efficiency. Delivery of DNA via tattooing could be a way for a more widespread application of DNA vaccines.

Tattoo injection are thought to be more effective because the repeated puncturing the skin by rotating tattoo needle does real damage to the skin the presence of a bona died wound causes inflammation cells to food into the site where they speed and enhance the immune response to the vaccines.

DNA vaccines can be grown in bacteria an approach that makes it possible it is produce DNA vaccines in large quantity and much faster than current procedure the use of tattoo injection coupled with the ability to rapidly produces large quantity valuable in a situation such as a threatened terrorist attack where a sudden need arises for large amount of an effective vaccines.

Hence, tattoos may be tomorrow's vaccines.
