Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Media ads asked treatment-seeking smokers to call for information about a smoking cessation program and to have their initial eligibility reviewed. Participants interested in the clinical trial and initially eligible attended an in-person session to determine their final eligibility. Recruitment was from 2009-2011.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
To be eligible, participants had to be: between age 18 and 55, smoke >10 cigarettes/day, and able to communicate in English. In addition, participants had to have a 3-HC/cotinine ratio that placed them in the top 3 quartiles of the 3-HC/cotinine ratio distribution to be consider fast nicotine metabolizers, which was >.18.

  Outcome Measures
  Show All Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Biochemically Verified 7-day Point Prevalence Abstinence at the End of 8 Weeks of Treatment   [ Time Frame: After 8 weeks of treatment with the patch, outcome will be measured. ]

2.  Secondary:   Side Effects   [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
This was a proof of concept trial and, as such, was inadequately powered to detect statistically significant treatment arm effects and did not include a long-term follow-up assessment.
