Now, long and painful attempts to quit smoking can be completely abandoned.
Microbiologists and chemists from the Scripps Institute have created a special smoking vaccine. As a result of studies of the vaccine in mice, scientists have found that the introduction of a special composition that controls the synthesis of individual proteins contributes to the complete elimination of nicotine from the body, saving people from any side effects, according to Science Advances.
The NicA2 enzyme discovered and modified by scientists was able to completely decompose nicotine that enters the body of a person or animal, and remove it long before the onset of withdrawal syndrome. For the most effective effects on the body, the researchers created a modified enzyme, NicA2-J1, which, unlike the first prototype of a vaccine for smokers, had to completely destroy nicotine addiction. Upon completion of laboratory studies in rodents, it was found that mice that had been receiving water for a long time with nicotine mixed in were completely cured by the modified enzyme from nicotine addiction.
