Apparently there is an antidote to thallium poisoning. Prussian blue:

Among the distinctive effects of thallium poisoning are loss of hair (which led it to its initial use as a depilatory before its toxicity was properly appreciated) and damage to peripheral nerves (victims may experience a sensation of walking on hot coals). Thallium was once an effective murder weapon before its effects became understood, and an antidote (prussian blue) discovered.

Prussian Blue is a paint/dye...useful for decontaminations, though.

The real question, however, is if the Thallium in this article was radioactive.
