I filed a new provisional patent application for this idea and I'm going to start contacting companies to gauge their interest.

Yes, it is useful to think of it as a titration in the field. We'll start with a low inducement and check for ROS response. We'll induce ROS in order to generate enough ROS residual throughout the body to offer more protection in the short-term. This is analogous to the use of chlorine residual in water distribution systems, which serves to protect the bulk of the water from contact with low levels of pathogens.

I would think that the ideal target range would be 10-20% of blood cells stimulated to produce ROS, since this was reported for "healthy" individuals.
