A randomized trial of e-cigarettes to reduce harm in smokers
12:10 - 12:25
Science, Safety and Health Effects
Tobacco is the leading cause of preventable death in the the world. Smoking cessation medications should be tried in all tobacco users. For those not wanting to quit, or desiring to reduce harm, the option to utilize electronic cigarettes exists. We conducted a randomized clinical trial (n=182) in the Midwest and southern California using JUUL, a 4th generation e-cigarette to see if those substituting e-cigarettes for combustible cigarettes would reduce NNAL levels, be able to completely switch to e-cigarettes, result in a change in cotinine levels, and reduce the number of cigarettes smoked. The presentation will also include some findings regarding dual users that are intriguing and hypothesis generating.
