Nobody likes to remain in pain. Pain killers relieve the emotional or physical pain, but addiction sometimes becomes part of it. Heroin addiction is dangerous as it can impair normal functioning and can also take lives. Heroin, in the form of prescription pain killers like OxyContin, Vicodin, Oxycodone gets introduced to the youth. Statistically, 900,000 Americans of age 12 and older use the drug at least once, annually. Of these reported, 200,000 are believed to be regular users of heroin.
Up until now, the vaccine has been tested on rats and non-human primates. Biologically, non human primates are said to be closer to humans than rats. The success rate of the cocaine vaccine results has urged the researchers to test the vaccine on humans. The tests conducted on rats injected with the virus and cocaine showed less hyperactive behavior than those mice which were given just cocaine.
Researchers attempted to study the effectiveness of the cocaine vaccine in non-human primates by measuring the amount of cocaine attaching itself to the dopamine transporter. If cocaine reaches the brain it prevents the transporter from carrying dopamine out and attaches itself to the dopamine transporter. This keeps the neurotransmitter active in producing a drug high.
An isotope was attached to the dopamine transporter to measure the amount of tracer attaching to the dopamine receptor in presence or absence of cocaine. The activity of the tracer was seen using a Positron Emission Tomography (PET). There was no change in tracer activity in vaccinated and non- vaccinated primates when cocaine was not given. There was a significant drop in activity of tracer when cocaine was given, in non-vaccinated animals.
This means that in the absence of vaccine, cocaine attaches itself to the dopamine receptor by replacing the tracer. The cocaine occupancy of the dopamine receptor in vaccinated primates was reduced to 20% by use of the vaccine. Previous researches have shown that to produce high cocaine should occupy 47% of the dopamine transporter.
The vaccine was further reported to have lasted 13 weeks in rats and 7 weeks in non-human primates. Researches do not know the amount of vaccine shots that would be required for humans to make it effective. With preliminary results being so satisfying, conducting human trials in near future for the cocaine vaccine gives hope to the cocaine addicts in Bay Village who want to desperately stop using.
Thousands of people in Bay Village suffer from cocaine addiction, and this has serious consequences as far as healthcare expenses and fatalities are concerned.
