Nicotine Replacement for Smoking Cessation during Pregnancy
Clinical Trial ( IRB ) #: 11-057-6
Title: Nicotine Replacement for Smoking Cessation during Pregnancy
Principal Investigator: Dr. Cheryl Oncken
Description: This is a clinical trial to determine if the nicotine inhaler in combination with counseling will help pregnant women quit smoking, and whether it is safe when compared to placebo (an inactive inhaler). The primary goals are: to examine the efficacy of the nicotine inhaler compared to a matched placebo for smoking cessation and reduction among pregnant smokers; to compare the nicotine inhaler with placebo on overall nicotine exposure (i.e., serum cotinine) and on birth outcomes (i.e., birth weight and gestational age); to identify factors that determine which women benefit most from the use of nicotine inhaler for smoking cessation during pregnancy; to explore mechanisms by which the nicotine inhaler increases birth weight and gestational age
