You’d think it would be a big deal if a scientist created a vaccine that could do away with addiction. So what if I told you that we already had one?
Kim Janda has a vaccine for heroin addiction. And for meth. And for cocaine, too. Janda, an American chemist and the Ely R. Callaway, Jr. Chaired Professor at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, gets calls and emails all the time from addicts, and people who know addicts, and who want more information about getting involved with clinical trials.
The problem? There haven’t been any clinical trials. And there won’t be any for the foreseeable future, either.
