Rural populations face significant smoking-related health disparities, such as a higher prevalence of lung cancer and cancer mortality, higher prevalence of smoking, and lower likelihood of receiving cessation treatment than urban counterparts. A significant proportion of health disparities in rural populations could be eliminated with low-barrier, easy-access treatment delivery methods for smoking cessation. In this study, we assessed treatment engagement among patients in rural and urban setti...

Abstract Background Comorbid psychiatric diagnoses have been shown to predict cessation failure. The relative impact of various diagnoses on cessation and other cessation processes is rarely studied, particularly among a general population. The impact of psychiatric history among primary care patients seeking cessation services on nicotine dependence, cessation outcomes, treatment effects and adherence, and withdrawal symptoms was examined. Methods Secondary data analysis of a multi-site compara...

Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable morbidity and mortality. Knowledge is evolving on genetics underlying initiation, regular smoking, nicotine dependence (ND), and cessation. We performed a genome-wide association study using the Fagerstrom Test for ND (FTND) in 58,000 smokers of European or African ancestry. Five genome-wide significant loci, including two novel loci MAGI2/GNAI1 (rs2714700) and TENM2 (rs1862416) were identified, and loci reported for other smoking traits were...

ABSTRACT Background Nonadherence to smoking cessation medication is a frequent problem. Identifying pre-quit predictors of nonadherence may help explain nonadherence and suggest tailored interventions to address it. Aims Identify and characterize subgroups of smokers based on adherence to nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). Method Secondary classification tree analyses of data from a 2-arm randomized controlled trial of Recommended Usual Care (R-UC, n = 315) versus Abstinence-Optimized Treatment...
