The latest news of breakthroughs and innovations in the worlds of science, medicine and technology. Drugs are in such widespread use in American society that traces of cocaine are to be found on every dollar bill in circulation. But a vaccine tested on rats that prevents cocaine from taking effect by blocking its path to the brain may provide the answer for the country's 4,000,000 heavy users. For 33-year-old Peggy, a habitual cocaine user since the age of 13, the vaccination could offer the hope of returning to a normal life. Plus, a report on trials being carried out on personal satellite navigation. Using technology developed by the US military to direct troops, the system could aid blind people to negotiate their way around the obstacles to be found in an unfamiliar city centre.
