Alcoholism vaccine will give drinkers an immediate hangover if they drink even a small amount of booze


  • The vaccine would be effective for between six months and a year
  • It sends a message to the liver not to express genes that metabolize alcohol
  • Trials on mice begin next month with human tests planned for November
