Matthew Carpenter

List of Studies


Keywords

Summary

This is a research study to find out if a smoking cessation medications, either varenicline or nicotine replacement products (patches or lozenges), are effective when given to smokers,remotely,as a one-time sample.

Participants will either receive a sample of varenicline, nicotine patches and lozenges, or neither. This will be decided randomly. Participants have a 50%chance of receiving varenicline, a 25% chance of receiving nicotine products, and a 25% chance of receiving neither. If the participant is assigned to a group that receives free samples, they will be mailed to them free of charge. There is no requirement to use them, and it is completely up to the participants. There is also no requirement to quit in this study.

The study lasts for six months, and will involve six total surveys. In addition, we ask that participants complete daily diaries (about 1 minute each) for the first 4 weeks of the study. Both varenicline and nicotine replacement products are well-established medications that help smokers quit.

Researcher
Erin McClure

List of Studies


Keywords
Adolescents, Smoking
Summary

This study is recruiting youth between the ages of 12 and 21 who use electronic cigarettes (e-cigs, vaping) and are interested in quitting. The purpose of this research study is to explore if youth vapers can quit using a smartphone application that delivers incentives. This study is completely remote (no in-person visits) with phone call visits and the use of a mobile app. If enrolled, participants will have brief weekly phone call visits for 4 weeks and a follow-up call on week 8. Participants will be encouraged to quit vaping during the study. Participants will be asked to submit selfie videos via the app providing saliva cotinine (by product of nicotine) samples to confirm that they have quit vaping.

Impact of Non-Cigarette Tobacco Product Formulation on Reinforcement Value and Use in Current Smokers

Date Added

PRO Number
Pro00093724
Researcher
Tracy Smith

List of Studies


Keywords
Smoking
Summary

The purpose of this project is to understand how different types of non-cigarette tobacco products affect the way smokers use tobacco products. Participants will complete three in-person visits. During the second visit, participants will sample a traditional cigarette and two e-cigarette e-liquids. Participants will answer questionnaires about each product they sample and then complete a preference assessment in which they choose between the products they sampled and their own cigarette. Finally, participants will take home a tobacco product they sampled to use ad libitum (1-week sampling). During the at-home baseline and sampling weeks, participants will complete electronic daily diaries cataloging their tobacco use. Biomarkers (i.e., expired carbon monoxide, cotinine) will corroborate self-reported indices of use. Participation will last approximately two weeks. E-cigarettes are likely less harmful than combustible cigarettes, but we are unsure how harmful, or how safe they might be. Side effects from using the e-cigarette are generally rare and mild, and may include: nausea, headache, heartburn, irritability, anxiety, headache, or trouble sleeping. There is no direct benefit for participating. Participation will aid researchers to determine how different types of tobacco products affect smoking behavior.
