How Can I Get the Smoking Vaccine?Right now, there is no FDA approved smoking vaccine on the market. There are few being developed in the U.S. and Europe. NicVAX, being developed by Nabi Pharmaceuticals, is currently in Phase III clinical trials. This means that there have been two previous trials on humans with few side effects, and scientists are studying the effects of the drug on a third group of humans. There are over 1000 people participating in the study at 25 sites nationwide, and the results of the study are expected by early 2012. Nabi Pharmaceuticals has recently partnered with the giant drug company GlaxoSmithKline to license and market the drug. GlaxoSmithKline is also investing millions of dollars toward the research and development of the vaccine.
