I am relieved that we may not have to wait for a possible second-generation effort with NicVax. I hope, though, that Pfizer will exercise that option as well.

Tobacco revenue should be used to fund this sort of research. Actually, they should be required to shell out additional money just for this purpose, given their fraudulent ramping up of the addictive capacity of the nicotine in their products.

Neutralizing the addiction is the one consumer-level effort that has a chance of bringing the industry down, no matter HOW good their research and experience have made them at getting kids to start.
