Vaccine for Drug Addiction



Wow...this is an amazing medical breakthrough. A vaccine that causes the body to make antibodies against the foreign drug, effectively neutralizing the drug, and enabling it to be excreted via the kidneys without affecting the brain.

My friend Will may be out of a job (he's an addiction medicine specialist), but at least he would still have his blog!

This was a nobel-prize idea that's (so far) not really panned out. There will be a JAMA rct out this year about it I hear.

When are they going to come out with a vaccine for blogging addiction?
