Anti-Heroin Vaccine to Appear Soon

Researchers from Ural State Medical Academy developed a substance, suitable for fighting addiction to opioid drugs, including heroin.

      Scientists designed a synthetic anti-opioid immunogenic substance, which worked according the same principle as anti-measles vaccine. The substance promotes synthesis of antibodies in an organism, and when the drug enters the organism, antibodies bind with it and take it out, leaving an addict without a rush.

      The substance has successfully passed first stage of preclinical trials and tests on laboratory animals. Next stage is testing the substance on large animals, and then no human volunteers. Two more years are required before the substance enters the market.
