For close to two decades researchers have been working to develop vaccines to prevent people from health hazards like smoking and drug use. Despite these efforts work remains to find ways to make these effective for a large number of people at risk.

Thomas Kosten, MD, from the Baylor School of Medicine discussed the topic during the American Psychiatric Association's annual meeting in Atlanta. Kosten said through the research they have looked at new and better ways to deliver antibodies to help treat patients. He added that they have also seen that increasing the dosage is not as important as finding the right delivery method to help these patients who need help to fight various addictions.
