Anti-smoking shot looks promising PDF Print
Wednesday, 07 November 2007 18:45

The Associated Press reported yesterday that a new shot could help people stop smoking.

A study showed more than twice as many people given five of the shots stopped smoking than those given fewer or placebo shots. The vaccine, NicVAX, is designed to “immunize” smokers against the rush fueling their addiction. It aims at stopping nicotine from reaching the brain- “taking the fun out of smoking” and, hopefully, making it easier to quit. Of the nation’s 46 million smokers, 40 percent attempt to quit each year. Fewer than 5 percent succeed long-term.
