The Northwestern nanotechnology does not suppress the entire immune system as do current therapies for MS, which make patients more susceptible to everyday infections and higher rates of cancer. Rather, when the nanoparticles are attached to myelin antigens and injected into the mice, the immune system is reset to normal. The immune system stops recognizing myelin as an alien invader and halts its attack on it.

...in mice, and the nanoparticle does not do the work; rather an antigen does. the nanoparticle is the car that gets the antigen doctor to the hospital on time.

It's been suggested that colloidal gold nanoparticles can help with multiple sclerosis and similar diseases but it's also been said that once you quit taking it the effects of the gold wear off in one to two months. A quick google search will give you more information.
