The primary goal of this research is to evaluate the effectiveness of an intervention for parents to reduce tobacco smoke exposure of young children
Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS0, also known as secondhand smoke, is the combination of smoke given off by the burning end of a tobacco product and the smoke exhaled by the smoker. Children exposed to ETS are at an increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), ear infections, colds, pneumonia, bronchitis and more severe asthma. ETS can also slow the growth of children's lungs and can cause them to cough, wheeze and fell breathless. The purpose of this study is to d...
RATIONALE: Providing parent/caregivers of children with cancer with education and evidence of secondhand smoke exposure can protect the child from future exposure to tobacco smoke. PURPOSE: This randomized study will compare education only to education plus cotinine feedback in decreasing secondhand smoke exposure in pediatric patients with cancer that reside with a household smoker.
SMOKN5 is aimed at studying ways to reduce environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) for children who are being treated for cancer. The study includes St. Jude parents whose child lives with at least one adult smoker who exposes the child to ETS, also called "secondhand smoke." We are comparing two groups of parents to see which group results in lower ETS exposure levels for the child being treated with cancer. The first group will receive the standard information and advice usually...
This study will: 1) test the effectiveness of a program to prevent the exposure of infants to environmental tobacco smoke; and 2) evaluate the health effects associated with prenatal and postpartum exposure to tobacco smoke products and environmental tobacco smoke among infants. African-American and Hispanic women who are 18 years of age or older, and who are between 28 and 35 weeks pregnant may be eligible for this study. Participants complete an interview and home visi...
This study aims to assess the feasibility of using an intervention for environmental smoke exposure in children that uses cotinine testing results with written materials and telephone counseling for a potential future study of parents whose children are admitted with respiratory illnesses to The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital in Portland, Maine.
The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate the efficacy of five tailored DVDs in reducing exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) among low income pregnant/postpartum women.
This study compares the health effects of dermal and inhalational exposure to thirdhand cigarette smoke to those of inhalational exposure to secondhand cigarette smoke in healthy, adult nonsmokers. Our hypothesis is that dermal exposure increases exposure to the tobacco specific carcinogen, NNK and may affect both endothelial function and epidermal integrity.
The purpose of this randomized control trial is to evaluate the effects of a multi-component intervention aimed at: 1. preventing tobacco initiation in youth 2. promoting anti-tobacco socialization in the home 3. decreasing environmental tobacco smoke exposure in children 4. promoting successful cessation in parent/guardian smokers. Control arm participants receive general health education. This family-based approach is implemented with school systems a...
To improve disease outcomes through reduction in secondhand tobacco smoke exposure of children with asthma
Secondhand smoke exposure in the home can causes sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), asthma, respiratory illnesses, and ear infections in children. In addition to cigarette smoke, exposure to other tobacco products can further compromise the safety of children in the home. This study aims to reduce the burden of multiple tobacco exposures, improve access to preventive care, and reduce the disproportionate risk for chronic diseases, including cancer, among African American wome...
This is a pilot study that aims to 1. Evaluate the effectiveness of using a structured tobacco cessation education program, CEASE (Clinical effort against second hand smoke exposure), NY, delivered by pediatric residents in the outpatient continuity clinic of the pediatric residency program in reducing the exposure of infants to second hand smoke. 2. Evaluate the efficacy of using a second hand smoke exposure biomarker, Urine cotinine level measu...
This project proposes to evaluate the effectiveness of training Head Start staff to discuss tobacco use, shs reduction and cessation in their existing encounters with parents in reducing tobacco use and exposure. Understanding the facilitators and barriers to integrating the intervention into the Head Start system will support future efforts to address tobacco use and exposure in families with small children.
Second-hand smoking (SHS) is a health hazard to infants and children, in whom it is associated with lower respiratory tract infections, wheezing, cough, middle ear infections and sudden infant death syndrome. The high prevalence of smoking in adults in China, 52.9% among men, 2.4% among women, results in many children being exposed to SHS at home. Data on the effectiveness of evidence-based smoking hygiene intervention to reduce SHS exposure among young children (e.g., aged 5 o...
Workplace exposure to secondhand cigarette smoke or environmental tobacco smoke (ETS)is widespread, effecting between 19 and 49% of the U.S. workforce. The first part of this study is designed to test whether exposure to ETS in the workplace effects a person's risk of developing chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. The second part of this study is designed to test whether antioxidant supplementation in this group of ETS exposed individuals can reduce thei...
Second hand smoking (SHS) is a health hazard to infants and children, in whom it is associated with lower respiratory tract infections, wheezing, cough, middle ear infections and sudden infant death syndrome. Evidence from developed nations suggests that measures to reduce exposure to SHS can improve children's health outcomes; this has not been systematically studied in a developing country setting. The investigators hypothesize that implementation of a package of smoking hygi...
RATIONALE: Gathering information about gene mutations and environmental exposure may help doctors learn more about the causes of retinoblastoma in young patients. PURPOSE: This laboratory study is looking at genetic mutations and environmental exposure in young patients with retinoblastoma and in their parents and young healthy unrelated volunteers.
Background: - Self-report and biochemical verification are used to determine smoking status in treatment trials and clinical research. Each method has merits and limitations that make it appropriate for particular situations. Participants who feel social pressure to report tobacco abstinence may provide unreliable self-reporting results. Biochemical verification using breath carbon monoxide (CO) is a more reliable indicator, but several biolog...
Secondhand smoke (SHS) exposure is a significant public health problem in that it both harms children and is widely prevalent, affecting more than 40% of US children. Tobacco cessation quitlines are effective in helping smokers quit, but few smokers make use of their services. Electronic health record-based systems that automate referral of interested parents to quitlines through pediatric settings may increase the proportion of smokers who successfully enroll in treatment.
The purpose of the study is to investigate the relationship between environmental agents and reproductive health. Environmental agents of interest include exposure to chemicals such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), flame retardants, dioxins, bisphenol A, phthalates, pesticides, and metals like lead and cadmium. We are also interested in the relationship between reproductive health and lifestyle risk factors, such as exposure to environmental tobacco smoke. Enrollees are ask...
The Secondhand Smoke Study is a medical research study investigating the physiologic, radiographic, and inflammatory responses of lungs to chronic exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke. Exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke (SHS) is associated with diverse health effects in nonsmokers. Although some of the toxic effects and underlying pathogenic mechanisms of acute exposure to SHS have been demonstrated through in vitro, animal, and controlled human exposure studies, the health e...
The goals of the study are to develop a culturally and linguistically appropriate intervention to reduce SHS exposure for LEP Korean women using a family-focused intervention approach targeting Korean Americans ages 18 and above in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, CA, and to evaluate efficacy of the proposed intervention. The study is a single group feasibility trial targeting a total of 4 lay health workers (LHW) and 24 dyads of LEP Korean women with self-reported SHS expos...
