Bio-med-backed drug could end addiction
It's pretty exciting when 30-plus years of medical research pays off. Dr. Nicholas Goeders has been in the lab since 1985, singularly focused on his masterpiece. It's a drug, potent and marketable, with the potential to curb an American epidemic. His intended patients? Addicted brains. That LSU-based research yielded Embera, and in three to five years it could come to market. Goeders and his financial backers at Biomedical Research Foundation of Northwest Louisiana are confident their product will help battle substance addiction. In '93 there were 3 groups of rats.
