Trials for a vaccine that makes you feel sick if you drink alcohol
It doesn't treat already established alcoholism directly .
Lasts for only six months. So you need to get revaccinated every six months.

It's stupid on many levels . I could see it having applications for people in a ten step program ,but aren't there already pills that do the same thing ?
Unless its for people who forget to take their pills .
Dunno. Everyone knows what I think of vaccines so....I'm dubious at best .

There are pills that do this but they have to be taken daily and if a person decides in a moment of weakness to say screw it!  The pills are useless.  If a person took the shot then they would HAVE to be careful about consumption.  Alcoholism kills - and anything that can help a person trying to quit is good imo.  A person who wants to go on a binge a few weeks after quitting but doesn't because of this medicine might not ever drink again if they could go 6 months without a drink.  If it sounds like I know what I'm talking about, it's cause I DO  :w00t: :tu:

Gee I must've been born vaccinated; it takes about one and a half beers to have me vomiting up all of last week.  Before that happens I turn beet red and glow in the dark.  There are some people, I guess, who just can't handle their liquor, and I'm one of them.

Count it as a rich blessing Frank!  Alcohol is fun in the beginning but, oh my.... it can be a curse later on.

The trials have probably been going on for a while. The article is dated  7 January 2011

"They will conduct further animal tests this year before launching human trials in 2012."

I saw it on the news this morning .There are current articles because of some new testing going on in Chile ,but they were vague .
That article was the most comprehensive ,so I used it even though it was old .

Or it could be used on habitual DUI offenders, who couldn't be trusted to take the pill.
