Immunity win dependence on "club drugs"
Methamphetamine – one of the most popular "club drugs." Fight the craving for it, scientists suggest using the new U.S. vaccine MH6, which has already been tested in rodents, says "Remedium".
Vaccine lowers the drugs. How it will be effective for a person is difficult to say. Tool works by the formation of antibodies to the molecules of the vaccine. The result – the formation of a complex of antibody molecules and methamphetamine, retarding the manifestation of intoxication.
But there is one catch: the methamphetamine molecule is too small, so the immune system it can not always find. During the six molecules were tested vectors, which are hooked to a molecule of methamphetamine. This helped trigger a strong immune response and block the symptoms – increased locomotor activity and body temperature jumps.
Blood tests showed that the concentration of antibodies was associated with a concentration of methamphetamine. Thus, the vaccinated animals indicators of drug in the brain were significantly lower than in non-vaccinated. True, the effect did not last long. By the way, at the disposal of scientists and antibodies are obtained using cell cultures. They can also be administered to drug addicts.
