“TOBACCO HARM REDUCTION IN AFGHANISTAN: EXPERIENCES, CHALLENGES, AND RECOMMENDATIONS”, new seminar at CoEHAR, University of Catania. On Friday, 14th July 2023 at 12 am CEST, Room 6 in the Biological Tower, Dr.…
Prof. Ang Sun of Temple University (USA) will hold a seminar on THR research on 11th July at 11am at the University of Catania.
The use of the drug combined with an innovative vaping cessation counseling program was safe and effective for quitting e-cigarettes. The combined approach also decreased the chances of relapsing back to vaping and smoking.
During the 2023 edition of the GFN, a pool of international diabetologists, coordinated by CoEHAR, addressed the issue of cigarette smoking among diabetes patients, setting new international treatment guidelines to be published soon.
In May, CoEHAR has launched one of its most ambitious project, the Veritas Cohort study. Now, more than 400 people from 27 different countries are involved and numbers keep increasing.
GFN 2023 will start tomorrow at Varsavia. The 10th edition of the Global Forum on Nicotine, from 21 to 24 June, will host more events dedicated to harm reduction research. During this edition will be also the second meeting of SAB Diasmoke. Diabetologists and experts on THR signed the guidelines on the treatment of smokers with diabetes.
Currently visiting professor at the University of Catania, prof. Roberto Sussman accepted to hold a Lectio Magistralis at the biological tower: he explained the real life usage of electronic cigarettes and the physics behind the environmental emission of ecig
“It is a fact that in Italy there are millions of smokers who are unwilling or unable to quit smoking – explained prof. Riccardo Polosa, founder of CoEHAR - These smokers do not accept to be medicalized because of their smoking habit and in Italy, even today, we do not have a health policy that takes care of these people. Risk reduction is the solution. In countries with a liberal approach, such as Sweden or England, which have chosen to open up to alternative nicotine release tools by promoting them in the cessation paths for heavy smokers, the prestigious smoke-free goal is being reached. It is time to follow these virtuous examples also in Italy".
"From biologic mechanisms to theragnostic paths in the Hereditary Cancer Syndromes: germline mutations as a therapeutic target" is the title of the meeting held at the Temple University, Friday, May 12. Although hereditary cancer…
According to Prof. Polosa: “The study does not present any causality between data and the hypothesis according to which there would be health complications for vapers”, In fact, as the scientist explains: “The very small sample size and low reproducibility of the tests does not allow us to give a precise and scientific answer on pulmonary inflammation caused by vaping because it does not take into consideration fundamental factors, such as the prior exposure to tobacco smoking”.
