Addiction Vaccination is Being Proposed, But Could it Work?

The U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price has announced that an addiction vaccine is being developed, according to Fierce Pharma

However, experts have said such a shot is unlikely to be public in the near future.

America is presently in the grip of a far-reaching and deadly opioid crisis and politicians are searching for an answer.

“One of the things they’re actually working on is a vaccine for addiction, which is an incredibly exciting prospect,” said Secretary Price in a recent statement.

Thomas Kosten, M.D., professor of psychiatry at Baylor College of Medicine, said in response to CNN: “I can’t imagine the vaccine would be on the market before the Trump administration is over.”

While the concept isn’t impossible, it still needs to get through all phases of clinical tests before reaching the market and Kosten understands the difficulty of reaching that milestone, according to Fierce Pharma.
