Physicians For a Smoke-Free Canada shared the initial results of the first large Canadian randomized clinical trial of e-cigarettes as a cessation device. In short, this study found that after 12 weeks of treatment, those who used e-cigarettes with nicotine to quit smoking were twice as likely to be cigarette-free at the end of treatment as were those who received only counselling. Data on longer-term outcomes are still being collected. Thanks to the American College of Cardiology’s sharing of this event and Youtube technology, a 6-minute synopsis of his presentation is available.
