Crystal meth has become the drug of choice lately and has even surpassed cocaine in Carrollton. Meth addiction can be extremely harmful and has already left quite a few tragedies in its wake.
Crystal meth is a white drug which is crystalline in nature and is consume through inhalation via the nose. Meth addiction is extremely difficult to get rid of and needs commitment and conviction on part of the addict and support and strength on the part of loved ones.
Addicts in Carrollton have consumed methamphetamine by snorting, injecting or even orally.
The meth vaccine being developed by The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) to counter the effects of meth abuse is in early stages of research at the moment. Initial tests show promising signs on rats and other animals.
About two years ago, Kim Janda, a professor of TSRI and his colleagues developed 6 potential meth vaccines. Each vaccine had a chemical cognate of the meth molecule which was linked to a larger antibody-provoking molecule.
Trials were first conducted on mice and later, on rats. Three mice were able to give a powerful antibody reaction. After testing on rats, the experts noticed that vaccine MH6 performed exceptionally well. MH6 was able to prevent two typical effects caused by meth, namely increased physical activity and losing the normal ability for regulating body temperature.
by this observation, the MH6 vaccine was studied further in more
depth and tested with a varied experimental set up to see if the
vaccine produced the same results. Amazingly enough, it did!
The experimentation also paved way from a valuable discovery. The vaccine was able to keep the drug out of the nervous system of the rats and stay only in the blood stream. This was the main cause for aiding the body to give a strong antibody response.
