What if science made a pill to protect us from addiction — keeping us from smoking cigarettes, getting fat or abusing drugs and alcohol? According to encouraging results from several lines of study, it seems that day may be closer than we thought. Researchers in labs around the world are now developing vaccines (not a pill, but an injection) to inoculate people against dangerously addictive substances such as coc aine, heroin and methamphetamine.
While most foreign substances in the body trigger an immune-system defense, many illegal drugs, like coc aine, fail to do so because their molecules are too small; they slip into the brain unnoticed and unchallenged. But by attaching them to larger proteins — in the case of TA-CD, an inactivated cholera protein that has been widely tested and is unlikely to cause side effects, according to researchers

The blood was so thin it seeped out through patients tear ducts.
Using the cholera bacterium as a vector is a crucial tweak in design; it allows the coc aine vaccine to sidestep the potential viral syndrome associated with other vaccines, such as Cytos's experimental anti-nicotine vaccine, which is delivered via virus, Kosten says. And because coc aine addiction is most severe in Western countries where cholera is not a threat and where the cholera vaccine is not widely administered, most people do not yet have natural immunity. "Most Americans don't have antibodies to cholera," Kosten says.
V. cholerae is a Gram-negative bacterium that produces cholera toxin, an enterotoxin, whose action on the mucosal epithelium lining of the small intestine is responsible for the characteristic massive diarrhoea of the disease
n just little over a year, the HPV vaccine has been associated with at least five deaths, not to mention thousands of reports of adverse effects, hundreds deemed serious, and many that required hospitalization.
