Trials

Cocaine vaccine trials have been successful on primates thus far. But there is still some debate on whether destroying cocaine in the bloodstream can really treat addiction because even though the symptoms may be physical, addiction is essentially a condition of the brain. In fact, in one study it was shown that even when cocaine was eliminated from addicts bloodstream, cravings didnt subside which created the need for greater dosages which may or may not be conducive to the addict.

Complications from Excessive Drug Usage

When a person starts using drugs regularly and excessively, certain complications arise. The intensity of these complications depends on what drug you are using and how long you have been using it for. Ultimately, however, any way you look at it continued drug use is bad will complicate your life.

These complications can include health related issues both physical and mental, financial problems due to excessive spending on acquiring these drugs and problems with your work life and relationships. Some of the more dangerous issues can include getting a disease such as HIV from sharing needles, accidents while being intoxicated, or even a coma and/or death.

Vaccine for drug abuse treatment is not a new idea. The first vaccine itself was developed in the 18th century to inoculate people against small pox. The result was a 100% success. Since then, scientists have invested vast amounts of time and resources attempting to prevent other conditions as well. Currently, there are two major research teams actively engaged in developing a vaccine for clinical trials: The group led by Kim Janda, Ph.D, of the Scripps Research Institute, and Thomas Kosten, M.D, of the Baylor College of Medicine. Kostens team ran the first ever late-stage cocaine vaccine trial with their vaccine TA-CD 3 years ago.

Cocaine Vaccine

Until now there are no such medicated drugs available to treat cocaine addiction. The talk of a cocaine vaccine has instilled hope in cocaine addicts and their supporters who want to help them. A vaccine is a biologically prepared substance which contains a disease imitating agent. A vaccine can be used to treat any particular disease. It strengthens the immunity of the body against that disease by making the body identify that agent as an outsider. Every time it locates it, it will attempt to destroy it.

Similar to how a vaccine works, cocaine vaccine is set to work in the same way. A cold flu virus is used in preparing the vaccine along with using a cocaine resembling molecule. The vaccine will prevent cocaine from entering the brain, thus preventing any artificially induced euphoric state from occurring. After giving the vaccine, cocaine gets destroyed because the body sees it as foreign. It will attack the cocaine in the bloodstream before any of it can reach the brain.
