HeroinVaccine Research started this petition to Director National Institute on Drug Abuse Dr. Nora Volkow
Dr. Kim Janda at the world famous Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California has developed a way to prevent overdoses and death from heroin and fentanyl. The new vaccine prevents the heroin and fentanyl from ever reaching the brain so there is no high, no overdose and no death. In fact, in pre-clinical trials, the vaccine eliminated cravings. This is a potential global game changer. It will also reduce the spread of blood borne diseases like HIV/AIDS and Hep C that are acquired from sharing needles. NIDA has been instrumental in moving this vaccine forward but Dr. Janda still needs $3 million to get through Phase 1 trials. NIDA needs to fund the rest of this research now. 129 people are dying every day. We need this NOW!!
