Drug Addiction Treatment

Battling Drug Addiction in Lebanon

How It Works

The heroin vaccine will act like a wall between the drug and the brain. It prevents heroin from reaching the brain and while it stays in the blood stream, it loses its affects in some time. The loss of effect is from the enzymes present in our body which degrades the heroin, minimizing its effect until it disappears completely. The vaccine would have pieces of the drug which are inactive, this will train the immune system to attack heroin present in bloodstream in the future.

Symptoms of Heroin Addiction

To treat an addict, the first step is to break the barrier and understand what they are going through. When you witness any or all of these symptoms in someone, try to convince them to seek help. The symptoms are as follows:

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.
