The news that the heroin vaccine was being developed in Mexico was published by British tabloid Daily Mail. According to the journal, the research would already be at the stage of human testing, following positive results with rats. The expectation is that the vaccine is released for use in 5 years.

According to Secretary of Health of Mexico, Salomon Chertorivski, not just heroin. This is what has been patented so far, but we are moving ahead rapidly with cocaine and methamphetamine.

The director of the National Institute of Psychiatry, Mexico, Maria Elena Medina Mora said, however, that the novelty is not a solution for all addicts. We know that is not a definitive solution to the problem of drug but is more a way of combating the disease.

"We hope that the vaccinated person has less desire to use drugs, because the vaccine takes away the pleasure of consuming it. It is clear that drug users want to quit and find other ways to help," added Maria Elena.
