    Nicotine vaccine trials begin in the US
    Selecta Biosciences Commences Dosing in Phase 1 Clinical Trial of Nicotine Vaccine for Smoking Cessation and Relapse Prevention - NASDAQ.com

    Although pain, memory and nicotine addiction may not seem to be related, they actually share a common player: the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. That's why Texas A&M researchers are working to develop drugs to enhance the function of these receptors in the brain, which could have three very different applications: easing pain, slowing the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer's and other neuropsychiatric diseases and making it easier for people to stop smoking

    And since not posted here (Unsurprisingly- but I did wait to see if anyone would..was on Thursday.) in Aussie news ....

    Donna Darvil (Sp?) founder of the NNA AU has apparently stepped down from her position of head of the NNA AU
    Her comment posted a couple of days ago somewhere else is this

    "I've resigned from the NNA AU. I did so for the purposes of the NNA AU going forward and my mental health. There is no problem within the group, we all get on very well and I know they support me fully.

    This is about me being abused consistently for the last three plus years. And lately abuse by Aussie Vendors very vigorously. The vendors have won.

    I could go on about what I have done but like anything, there is no point boasting where there has been little results. There has been no positive results while I've been working in advocacy so I guess it's a case of I failed.

    The backlash towards me has made me realise that I'm the problem so it's best that the NNA AU go forward without me.

    I wish everyone the very best.

    Thanks to all my wonderful friends."


    Another further comment by Donna reads
    The New Nicotine Alliance Australia are pleased to announce we have a fourth board member. Annette Huppatz has volunteered to work as our vaper and vendor Liaison member. Her role will be to disseminate information to the wider vaper and vendor community and be the NNA presence across social media platforms. If you have any queries, feel free to contact Annette. Please welcome her aboard.

    Thanks Annette (our own Nico & Laughter)!!

    Be _very_ afraid.

    It won't stop you craving a cigarette, it will just make it pointless to have one. Doesn't that sound familiar? cough*Champix*cough. Yet again their "quit or die" dogma completely fails to understand the real issues facing smokers who have the most trouble kicking the habit.

    Since it works by "preventing nicotine from crossing the blood-brain barrier" by destroying it I fail to see what that's going to do for Alzheimer's sufferers. Blocking even the nicotine absorbed from food (eggplant and tomatoe etc) it could actually make the problem worse. I also note that the press release doesn't actually say *anything* about cognitive function or Alzheimer's so I'm not sure where that comes from exactly.

    What a grand friggen waste of money, in my opion. (I'd love to be proven wrong on this one but nothing they've said makes much sense).

    No link to the study, can't be found on the institutes web site, or on any search engine. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think this is one of those fabricated "studies" that are just cash-for-comment. Gotta make sure that grant money keeps rolling in so we can treat all the cancer patients we're harming.
