  • Psychological difficulties

The Cocaine Vaccine

Cocaine addiction has become a severe issue today. The use of cocaine as a recreational drug has escalated in Lawrence . Efforts are being made in order to help addicts end their physical dependency on the drug in order to eliminate withdrawal symptoms. Since the most common effects of cocaine abuse are psychological, it is important to attack cocaine cells in the bloodstream before they reach the brain.

Researchers at the Weill Cornell Medical College were able to successfully run tests on primates for their anti-cocaine vaccine which has brought them another step closer to clinical trials on human subjects. This is a breakthrough in cocaine treatment and may become a sure fire way to eliminate dependency on the drug.

Heroin Addiction in Lawrence and its Severe Consequences

Nobody likes to remain in pain. Pain killers relieve the emotional or physical pain, but addiction sometimes becomes part of it. Heroin addiction is dangerous as it can impair normal functioning and can also take lives. Heroin, in the form of prescription pain killers like OxyContin, Vicodin, Oxycodone gets introduced to the youth. Statistically, 900,000 Americans of age 12 and older use the drug at least once, annually. Of these reported, 200,000 are believed to be regular users of heroin.

Still in the Testing Stage

The study that was initially carried out on rats found that after provided with unlimited heroin, rats became addicted to the drug. Once addicted, they were made to go through a four week detoxification. Some were exposed to the heroin vaccine while others were put through conventional methods of recovery.

Upon re-exposing them to the heroin, it was found that the rats that werent given the heroin vaccine immediately went into relapse while the others stopped taking it.

The heroin vaccine creates a wall between the bloodstream and the brain which does not allow from the drug to enter. As the addict will no longer feel the high associated with heroin, they will lose incentive for its use.

The next stage for the development of the heroin vaccine before it is commercially available will be human testing. Financial barriers however have delayed such a step.
