Scientists have developed a vaccine to quit cocaine and crack

Scientists have developed a vaccine to help quit cocaine and crack.

This vaccine, which has shown promising results in various stages of testing, including animal trials, creates an immune response in the body that prevents drugs from reaching the brain.

Brazilian scientists have announced the development of a new treatment method for addiction and the production of an anti-cocaine and crack vaccine. This research is taking place at the Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil. The vaccine project, named Calix Coca, won the Best Latin American Medical Project award worth 500,000 euros last week. This award, provided by Europharma pharmaceutical company, will be allocated to further investment in this project.

Dr. Frederico Garcia, the coordinator of the research team, understands that people in the process of quitting are the main target of this vaccine. He says, ‘We believe that individuals who are making an effort to quit and starting the process will have a better chance of staying away from drugs with the help of this vaccine, as they will no longer experience the pleasure of drug use.’
