The heroin vaccine developed by Drs Janda and Koob not only has the potential to eliminate relapse, but can also prevent heroin overdoses from occurring because it blocks heroin from entering the brain in the first place. This vaccine is very different from Naloxone which reverses overdoses after they have occurred. The vaccine has global implications which may decrease IV heroin use and reduce the rates of HIV and other blood born infections worldwide. The vaccine has surpassed expectations in pre-clinical trials. However, in order to get to human trials, its patent must be extended and further work must begin by June 3, 2014.
oin overdose has been prevented in pre-clinical trials with the vaccine developed by Drs. Janda and Koob at TSRI, in fact it has surpassed all expectations. This vaccine is completely different from Narcan. In order to get to human trials, the patent must be extended. This work needs to begin by June 3, 2014. This vaccine has global implications. It will reduce the Aids epidemic and prison populations. This vaccine is the cornerstone research for vaccines into other addictions.
