Researchers from military-medical centre Uoltera have developed substance which blocks heroin action. The preparation is already tested on animals — laboratory mice and rats.
By penetrating into an organism, the new drug releases antibodies that block the penetration of drug molecules through the hematoenstatic barrier. This means that the narcodependent does not feel the effects of drugs, getting the required dose.
Specialists note that the new vaccine not only blocks heroin, brain effects, but also other drugs. Scientists will need a few more years to see the final results of their research.
