In their work “Respiratory health effects of e-cigarette substitution for tobacco cigarettes: a systematic review”, researchers analyzed 16 studies from 20 publications: most of the studies showed no difference in respiratory parameters. This indicates that electronic nicotine delivery systems substitution for smoking likely does not result in additional harm to respiratory health.
Two CoEHAR researchers will be part of this great event: The CoEHAR Director, Giovanni Li Volti, who is also PI of the replica project, will discuss the latest results of the Replica project and the IN silicon Science Pi, Dr. Renée O’Leary, will present her latest work.
The findings presented by CoEHAR researchers can contribute the discussions of ENDS for cessation and support harm reduction strategies in the world.
"We decided to provide the widest overview of clinical evidence on smoking submission and quit rates and absitance rates of e-cigarettes to researchers and clinicians” explain dr. Renèe O’Leary, author of the protocol.
Researchers from CoEHAR's In Silico Science project have developed a two-step technique to identify spin bias, research reporting that results in an intentional or unintentional misinterpretation of research results.
The research covered 25 studies comprising 1,810 participants who smoked. The authors found that nearly two thirds of the tests analyzed showed e-cigarettes do not bring any additional harm to a smoker’s health, specifically in relation to heart rate, blood pressure and cardiovascular test. In fact, researchers evaluated evidence from two clinical studies that showed that the use of e-cigarettes could lead to a potential benefit. For example, participants with hypertension experienced a clinically significant reduction in systolic blood pressure after one year of electronic nicotine delivery systems use.
The In Silico Science research team conducted a series of robust and exhaustive systematic reviews to bring forward the best available evidence on the health effects of e-cigarettes on human health developing data for clinicians
The Foundation for a Smoke Free World (FSFW) will host a free 60-minute public economics webinar to discuss the latest news regarding electronic nicotine delivery systems. Join the meeting Thursday, May 12, 2022 at 9.00AM US EST
In the field of harm reduction, there are a lot of women who stands for the smokers right to choose safer alternatives to quit smoking. Some of them are leading experts in fields such as research, communication and law
“The results of LSR are of particular interest for lawmakers, clinicians, as well as the public seeking reliable information on e-cigarettes." The seminar “Living systematic reviews: a new standard for…
