Experimental: Nicotine vaccination
18 week treatment with Nicvax
Biological: vaccination with Nicvax
5 vaccinations of NicVax 400ug (1 ml) over a 18 week period or matching placebo.
Other Name: NicVAX is a P. earoginosa r-Exoprotein conjugate vaccine.
- FMRI [ Time Frame: at 18 and 20 weeks post vaccination ]Regional blood oxygenated level dependent (BOLD) response (method: BOLD functional MRI) during resting state and during task performance, in regions of interest, before and after nicotine administration.
- Reaction time [ Time Frame: at 18 and 20 weeks post vaccination ]Task performance; the number of correct response and the reaction time in a battery of psycho-motor tests.
- Mood [ Time Frame: 18 and 20 weeks post vaccination ]Mood will be evaluated by means of questionnaires prior to and following the nicotine/placebo challenge
