A new replacement for the old shot. By : Owen B.

A new idea was thought of instead of shots. This idea is called Nanopatch.

This is Mark Kendall the inventor of this fine idea.

Nanopatch is well just a mini patch. It works by targeting cells and not the muscle. That would hurt a lot less and be way more effective. It also prevents the worker from potential disease being picked up from the blood of the patient.

Mark Kendall and Nanopatch are going to start their testing to influence the medical agencies that it should be allowed. The place that they will test in is Papua, New Guinea.

They chose this place because nanopatch can survive un refrigerated. So, they want to see if that statement can hold up. And why is this statement important you may ask. Well if you have to refrigerate your shot in a country that can’t, they can’t be healthy. Once you don’t have to though that means more people get vaccinated. What happens when more people get vaccinated? More people become healthy and more people will live longer. They want to start testing in the U.S. in 5 to 7 years. Here in the U.S. it doesn't matter as much for the moment. We are able to refrigerate our shot so we can use them. Here the pluses would be no pain, no diseases being spread and faster and simpler injections.

No diseases being spread.

Faster and simpler injections.

Also, it could be 10 years before it’s brought to market. There’s no doubt that it will take a long time to get to market. First they have to come up with a plan for testing. Second, the testing would actually have to work. If it dosen’t work they have to start all over again. If it does, they move on to the next place and next place and so forth. Finally, they present all their evidence to the major agencies and if they accept they start broadcasting their product to major companies for them to use. If it doesn't get approved they start over with the whole process. So it could be a while or just a very, very long time before there is testing in the U.S. And, of course it will take longer to actually start being used in the U.S. But, once again that all depends on when and where it get’s approved.
