Smokers all know how tough it is to quit. Now researchers have developed (and successfully tested in mice) a VACCINE to treat nicotine addiction. A single dose protects mice over their lifetime (no booster shots!) Will it work for human smokers?
It uses the animal's liver as a factory to continuously produce antibodies that gobble up nicotine the moment it enters the bloodstream, preventing the chemical from reaching the brain and even the heart. Researcher Ronald G. Crystal says, "As far as we can see, the best way to treat chronic nicotine addiction from smoking is to have these Pacman-like antibodies on patrol, clearing the blood as needed before nicotine can have any biological effect. Our vaccine allows the body to make its own monoclonal antibodies against nicotine, and in that way, develop a workable immunity."
Studies show that between 70 and 80% of smokers who try to quit light up again within six months. About 20% of adult Americans smoke, and while there are 4,000 chemicals in a burning cigarette that cause the health problems associated with smoking--diseases that lead to one out of every five deaths in the U.S--it's the nicotine within the tobacco that keeps the smoker hooked.
