Researchers at the University of Houston are developing an innovative new vaccine with the potential to prevent addiction to fentanyl. The vaccine works by stimulating the immune system to create anti-bodies that block the negative effects of fentanyl before it can enter the brain, allowing individuals to seek sobriety. Using a vaccine to protect against opioid overdose is a promising breakthrough, with test strips and naloxone also helping to reduce the risk of accidental overdose. With further research needed to determine its efficacy in humans, the fentanyl vaccine could be an invaluable tool in the fight against opioid addiction and overdose.
