Nicotine Dependence clinical trials at UCSF

7 in progress, 4 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Engaging Sexual and Gender Minority Cigarette Smokers Into Social Media-based Treatment

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This research study will evaluate the preliminary efficacy of Pride Posts Plus, a social media-based smoking cessation treatment. A pilot randomized trial (N=120) will compare Pride Posts Plus, which includes a gamification element, to Pride Posts (without gamification) and to a usual care treatment. Participants will be adults who smoke, identify as sexual or gender minorities, and use Facebook. The primary outcome will be biochemically verified 7-day abstinence from smoking at 3 and 6 months. Secondary outcomes will be treatment engagement, a quit attempt (y/n), and thoughts about tobacco abstinence at 3 and 6 mos.

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

    open to eligible people ages 21 years and up

    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 and cigarette-free days in an experimental marketplace that contains VLNC cigarettes versus normal nicotine content (NNC) cigarettes.

  • Short-Term Cardiovascular Effects of E-Cigarettes: Influence of Device Power

    open to eligible people ages 21 years and up

    This study will examine the short-term cardiovascular (CV) effects of e-cigarette device power in a randomized, crossover clinical and behavioral pharmacology study of experienced adult e-cigarette users (N=21). The specific aim is to determine the impact of e-cigarette power on nicotine pharmacology, systemic exposure to toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and short-term cardiovascular effects.

  • THC Crossover Study

    open to eligible people ages 21 years and up

    This is a randomized, crossover study enrolling experienced dual cannabis-tobacco smokers (N=18) to describe the differences in THC and toxicant exposure, examining pharmacokinetic, subjective, and cardiovascular effects from smoking and vaping dry herb cannabis. This study will also examine the differences in toxicant exposure and cardiovascular disease risk between smoking cannabis and smoking tobacco cigarettes.

  • Vaping High vs. Low Nicotine E-Liquid

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This study will examine the effects of electronic cigarette e-liquid nicotine content in a randomized, crossover clinical and behavioral pharmacology study of experienced adult e-cigarette users (N=36). The specific aim is to determine the impact of nicotine content of e-liquid on nicotine pharmacology, systemic exposure to toxic volatile organic compounds, and short-term cardiovascular effects.
