  • Impact of Very Low Nicotine Content Cigarettes in a Complex Marketplace

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This project will examine the impact of very low nicotine content (VLNC) cigarettes in a complex tobacco and nicotine product marketplace. We will compare the number of cigarettes smoked, use of alternative nicotine-containing products, biomarkers of toxicant exposure and days abstinence from cigarettes in an experimental marketplace that contains VLNC cigarettes versus normal nicotine content (NNC) cigarettes.

  • Project 2: Strategies for Reducing Nicotine Content in Cigarettes

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The main goal of this project is to compare two different approaches to reducing levels of nicotine in cigarettes: an immediate reduction in nicotine content in cigarettes to non-addictive levels or a gradual reduction in nicotine content in cigarettes to non-addictive levels. These two approaches will then be contrasted to a group that continues to smoke cigarettes with nicotine content similar to conventional cigarettes.
