A medicine for the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction has been created on the basis of the hormone of love.
There have been initiated the clinical trials of drugs for alcohol addiction, which are based on the hormone of love. It is a spray, which has been developed by Australian scientists.
Preliminary tests were conducted on laboratory rats that suffered from alcoholism and drug addiction. After a course of injections of the oxytocin hormone, the interest of the rodents to alcohol and drugs has reduced significantly.
Oxytocin has an anti-stress effect. The scientists from the University of Sydney explain that the supplies of oxytocin in the brain are reduced because of alcohol and drug addiction. Restoration of the hormone level will bring the brain system back to norm and eliminate the harmful addiction.
