CRETE, Neb. (AP) -- An assistant professor of chemistry is
developing a tiny testing kit that women can carry in their
purses and use to quickly detect date-rape drugs.
Date-rape drugs -- or "roofies'' -- such as Rohypnol are
secreted into a person's drink. The drug incapacitates the
person and causes memory loss. Men and women who have
been raped while under its influence can regain their senses
with no memory of the assault.
Rohypnol and other date-rape drugs may no longer detectable
by the time a victim is treated and tested.
"Many women do get raped and cannot prove it afterwards.'',
Holmes said. "What we want to do is determine the presence of the
drug before it ever enters the body.''
