Culturally Tailored Smoking Cessation for Adult American Indian Smokers: A Clinical Trial
Tue, 05 Aug 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | The Counseling Psychologist
This collaborative, community-engaged project developed and tested a Culturally Tailored Treatment (CTT) for American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) smokers in the Menominee tribal community. One hundred three adult AI/AN smokers were randomized to receive either Standard Treatment (ST; n = 53) or CTT (n = 50) for smoking cessation. Both treatment conditions included 12 weeks of varenicline and four individual counseling sessions but differed in terms of cultural tailoring of the counseling. The primary outcome was 7-day, biochemically confirmed point-prevalence abstinence (PPA) at the 6-month end-of-study visit. Both intention-to-treat (ITT) and responder-only analyses were conducted. There were no statistically significant group differences in 7-day PPA. The overall ITT abstinence rate at ...
Varenicline in the Treatment of Alcohol Use Disorders.
Tue, 05 Aug 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | The Annals of Pharmacotherapy
CONCLUSIONS: Evidence supports the use of varenicline for the reduction of alcohol craving as well as for the reduction of overall alcohol consumption in patients with alcohol use disorders. However, it is not likely to improve abstinence rates. Although most of the data were derived from patients with concurrent nicotine dependence, the effects of varenicline appear to occur independent of baseline smoking status.

Conclusions: These preliminary data provide the first demonstration of safety and feasibility of the co-administration of NAC and VAR in cigarette smokers. AEs were consistent with those typically reported for VAR and NAC. These data support future efficacy research on NAC and VAR for smoking cessation.
Cytisine is effective for smoking cessation: should clinicians use it?
Fri, 18 Jul 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Evidence-Based Medicine
Commentary on: Hajek P, McRobbie H, Myers K. Efficacy of cytisine in helping smokers quit: systematic review and meta-analysis. Thorax 2013;68:1037–42 Context Tobacco use remains a leading cause of avoidable premature mortality and morbidity worldwide with approximately 800 million male and 200 million female smokers worldwide.1 Much of this ongoing disease burden can be avoided through smoking cessation. However, nicotine in tobacco smoke is highly addicting and most cessation attempts fail. There are diverse approaches to increase the success rate of quit attempts, including approved pharmacological therapies: nicotine-replacement therapy (NRT; available in several forms and over-the-counter), bupropion (an antidepressant) and varenicline (a partial nicotine agonist). Each of these...
