Meth Vaccine Trials

A team at TSRI (The Scripps Research Institute) has developed several compounds that they believe can bring the meth vaccine concept to fruition. These compound were tested on rats, and one of them (MH6) did show positive effects.

When lab rats became high on meth, they were seen to have abnormally high levels of energy, and their body temperature increased significantly. The compound MH6 helped to curb both these conditions, and it also created a health antibody response. The basic idea of a vaccine is to fuel the creation of antibodies that will fight off diseases in the body. A similar effect generated by MH6 compelled researchers to believe that the vaccine was preventing meth from reaching the nervous system.

A different research group reports that studies for antibody-based addiction treatment also show promising results. In this study antibodies for meth are grown through standard biotechnology methods. The problem is that these particular methods are highly costly, which will discourage meth addicts from using it.
