The Daily Telegraph is reporting on an amazing achievement... a vaccine, which causes nicotine to have no effect whatsoever... on mice. Nicotine calms a person, and causes a slowing in heartbeat. These positive effects of smoking, are something the scientists, think... need to end.
So... How does it work?
Genetic Engineering... yes, I said it... Genetically Modified (GM) antibody... as a cure. The anti-body filters nicotine out of the blood, and after it appears once, the bodies... of the mice, mimic it. Such means: no more pleasure from smoking.
It is suggested that, soon they may graduate from Mice to Men. But if you are a mouse or a man... the best laid schemes and plans of either... to quit, might determine if one is a mouse or a man... There is still the emotional addiction to deal with, if the process works, and any side affects, as yet unspoken.
For more on what professor of Genetic Medicine, Dr Ronald Crystal, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, has to say to the Daily Telegraph:
