A comparison of three products for oral nicotine replacement with respect to pharmacokinetics after multiple-doses of nicotine.
This study compares a new oral Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) product with NiQuitin™ lozenge 4 mg and Nicorette®gum 4 mg, after 12 hours of nicotine abstinence, with respect to steady-state nicotine pharmacokinetics, during 12 hours after start of the first administration. Multiple doses of each treatment are given once hourly during five separate treatment visits scheduled in a crossover setting with randomized treatment sequences. The study will include 40 healthy smokers between 18-50 years, who have been smoking at least 20 cigarettes daily during at least one year preceding inclusion. Subjects and study personnel will be aware of which treatment is administered at a given visit.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

The proposed work will advance the understanding and effectiveness of tobacco dependence treatment and result in more smokers quitting successfully.
The purpose of the study is to compare the pharmacokinetic (PK) profiles and assess bioequivalence between a new nicotine lozenge and a reference nicotine lozenge in healthy smokers
The purpose of the study is to compare the pharmacokinetic (PK) profiles and assess bioequivalence between a new nicotine lozenge and a reference nicotine lozenge in healthy smokers.
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 two products for oral nicotine replacement with respect to relief of urges to smoke after single doses of nicotine.
This study investigated the effects of nicotine/tobacco on neural activation during performance of a monetary incentivized delay task.
Nicotine replacement medications are moderately effective in increasing quit rates. However, some smokers reject such aids, suggesting the value of considering alternative options. Snus, a smokeless t...
Research on cigarette smokers suggests cognitive and behavioral impairments. However, much remains unclear how the functional neurobiology of smokers is influenced by nicotine state. Therefore, we sou...
Confirming preclinical findings, nicotine in humans (via smoking) enhances reinforcement from non-drug rewards. Recent demonstration of similar effects with nicotine via e-cigarettes suggests they may...
Nicotine addiction is the proximate cause of disease and death from cigarette smoking. In 1994, we proposed reducing the nicotine content of cigarettes to non-addicting levels to reduce the risk of yo...
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 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.
A condition of abnormally low AMNIOTIC FLUID volume. Principal causes include malformations of fetal URINARY TRACT; FETAL GROWTH RETARDATION; GESTATIONAL HYPERTENSION; nicotine poisoning; and PROLONGED PREGNANCY.
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
