How Heroin Vaccine Works

A vaccine for heroin addiction is a great plus for all addicts. This is because surviving a heroin addiction can be a painful and difficult process, especially because even after treatment there is always a risk of a relapse. This vaccine is beneficial in helping addicts even after a potential relapse.

The vaccine works by tricking the immune system of the body into thinking of heroin as a pathogen (bacteria or a virus). This then results in the body to produce antibodies against the drug which help keep the drug away from the brain. The brain is the region where the high is produced. So if the drug does not reach the brain then no sense or feeling of euphoria can be produced.

Meth Vaccines

The meth vaccine being developed by The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) to counter the effects of meth abuse is in early stages of research at the moment. Initial tests show promising signs on rats and other animals.

About two years ago, Kim Janda, a professor of TSRI and his colleagues developed 6 potential meth vaccines. Each vaccine had a chemical cognate of the meth molecule which was linked to a larger antibody-provoking molecule.

Trials were first conducted on mice and later, on rats. Three mice were able to give a powerful antibody reaction. After testing on rats, the experts noticed that vaccine MH6 performed exceptionally well. MH6 was able to prevent two typical effects caused by meth, namely increased physical activity and losing the normal ability for regulating body temperature.

Encouraged by this observation, the MH6 vaccine was studied further in more depth and tested with a varied experimental set up to see if the vaccine produced the same results. Amazingly enough, it did!

The experimentation also paved way from a valuable discovery. The vaccine was able to keep the drug out of the nervous system of the rats and stay only in the blood stream. This was the main cause for aiding the body to give a strong antibody response.

Clinical Trials

Lab tests against cocaine on mice and primates have so far been successful. Researchers in the Cornell Medical College expect human trials to begin by the end of next year. But research elsewhere suggests that addiction is more of a psychological issue than physical. Also, rendering cocaine ineffective to the human body could pose problems for major medical practices, such as surgeries and operations that use anesthesia. Cocaine has the same qualities as some of the drugs used as local anesthetics licodaine and Novocain.
