Early Effects of a New Oral Nicotine Replacement Product and NiQuitinâ„¢ Lozenge
A comparison of two products for oral nicotine replacement with respect to relief of urges to smoke after single doses of nicotine.
This study compares a new oral Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) product with NiQuitinâ„˘ lozenge 2 mg and 4 mg, respectively, after 5 hours of witnessed nicotine abstinence with respect to urges to smoke during the first 5 minutes after start of treatment. Single doses of each treatment are given during separate treatment visits scheduled in a crossover setting with randomized treatment sequences. The study will include 200 healthy smokers between 19-55 years, who have been smoking at least 10 cigarettes daily during at least one year preceding inclusion, and who smoke within 30 minutes of waking up. Subjects, study personnel and monitor will be aware of what type of product is administered at a given visit, but not of the administered dose of the lozenge.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacodynamics Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Nicotine, NiQuitinâ„˘ lozenge (Nicotine Lozenge) 2 mg, NiQuitinâ„˘ lozenge (Nicotine Lozenge) 4 mg

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Nicotine is highly toxic alkaloid. It is the prototypical agonist at nicotinic cholinergic receptors where it dramatically stimulates neurons and ultimately blocks synaptic transmission. Nicotine is also important medically because of its presence in tobacco smoke.
A plant genus of the family FABACEAE that is a source of aromatic resinous balsams (Balsam of Tolu and Balsam of Peru) used in perfumery and as a constituent in cough syrups and lozenge.
A plant genus of the family SOLANACEAE. Members contain NICOTINE and other biologically active chemicals; its dried leaves are used for SMOKING.
The N-glucuronide conjugate of cotinine is a major urinary metabolite of NICOTINE. It thus serves as a biomarker of exposure to tobacco SMOKING. It has CNS stimulating properties.
An alkaloid that has actions similar to NICOTINE on nicotinic cholinergic receptors but is less potent. It has been proposed for a variety of therapeutic uses including in respiratory disorders, peripheral vascular disorders, insomnia, and smoking cessation.
The proposed work will advance the understanding and effectiveness of tobacco dependence treatment and result in more smokers quitting successfully.
The information gathered in this study may help to develop more effective ways to help people quit smoking and stay quit in the future.
In this study, smokers will be randomly assigned to one of three conditions for six weeks: 1) nicotine-free cigarettes (0.05mg); 2) extra low nicotine cigarettes (0.3 mg); or 3) medicinal...
A comparison of three products for oral nicotine replacement with respect to pharmacokinetics after multiple-doses of nicotine.
RATIONALE: Stop-smoking plans, including counseling and nicotine replacement therapy, may help smokers quit smoking. It is not yet known whether counseling and the nicotine lozenge is more...
INTRODUCTION: Swedish-style snus (SS) has recently garnered controversy for its proposed use as a smoking cessation aid and/or harm reduction tool. However, to date, little work has been done to evalu...
Avoidance of the nicotine withdrawal syndrome as well as the positive subjective effects of nicotine is the major predisposing factor to motivate nicotine abuse. However, its underlying neurobehaviora...
We announce a 4.63-Mb genome assembly of an isolated bacterium that is the first sequenced nicotine-degrading Arthrobacter strain. Nicotine catabolism genes of the nicotine-degrading plasmid pAO1 were...
Nicotine has been repeatedly reported as substance possessing neuroprotective properties. This study focused on the possible beneficial effects of nicotine against the high-altitude hypoxia (9000 m fo...
Studies of nicotine consumption in rodents often intend to investigate nicotine's post-absorptive effects, yet little is known about the pre-absorptive sensory experience of nicotine drinking, includi...
