Nicotine Replacement Therapy Use Among Adolescent Smokers Seeking Cessation Treatment

Monday, July 26, 2010  
Nicotine Replacement Therapy Use Among Adolescent Smokers Seeking Cessation Treatment.
Botello-Harbaum M, Schroeder JR, Collins CC, Moolchan ET. Ethn Dis. 2010 Spring;20(2):180-4.

This study examined use of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) in a sample of adolescent smokers seeking smoking cessation treatment in the Baltimore, MD metropolitan area. NRT was not provided as part of this observational study. The study found that European American youths are more likely than their ‘other’ counterparts to use NRT after adjusting for age and smoking severity, while African American youths are less likely than their ‘other’ counterparts to use NRT. The authors conclude that racial/ethnic disparities exist in accessing smoking cessation options (specifically NRT) among adolescents. Further research is needed to fully elucidate factors contributing to these differences in order to facilitate increased smoking cessation rates among all adolescents.
