Tobacco clinical trials at UC Health
10 in progress, 4 open to new patients

  • An Extended Facebook Intervention for Young Sexual and Gender Minority Smokers

    open to eligible people ages 18-25

    The 2-year research plan will test the Extended Put It Out Project (POP-6) in a pilot randomized trial (N=168) compared to TSP-6, as well as comparing POP-6 and TSP-6 to the POP-3 and TSP-3 interventions from a previously-conducted trial. Participants will be young adults who smoke, identify as sexual or gender minorities (SGM), and use Facebook. Primary outcome will be biochemically verified 7-day abstinence from smoking at 3 and 6 months. Secondary outcomes will be a quit attempt (y/n), stage of change, and thoughts about tobacco abstinence at 3 and 6 months.

  • Aspirin and Zileuton and Biomarker Expression in Nasal Tissue of Current Smokers

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This randomized phase II trial studies the effects of aspirin and zileuton on genes related to tobacco use in current smokers. Aspirin and zileuton may interfere with genes related to tobacco use and may be useful in preventing lung cancer in current smokers.

  • Effect of Packaging on Smoking Perceptions and Behavior

    open to eligible people ages 21-65

    The investigators are addressing two critical areas identified by the FDA: the impact of cigarette packaging and labeling on consumer perceptions and on smoking behavior; and the effectiveness of graphic warning labels on communicating risk of tobacco products. In a randomized controlled trial (RCT), investigators will enroll committed smokers who have no intention of quitting in the next 6-months. The three study arms will be: a) a plain pack with all marketing materials removed (PP); b) The Australian graphic warning images (Australian model-AM); or c) a standard pack with all marketing materials unaltered (ST). The study includes a three month purchasing intervention and continued follow-up through 12 months. Throughout the study interactive text messaging assessments will be used to measure acute and persistent impact of labeling and marketing on perceptions of tobacco products, subjective effects of consumption, awareness of tobacco-related harms, tobacco use behavior, and quitting motivation. At three separate time points, participants will: a) complete a web-based questionnaire b) provide a saliva sample for cotinine analysis. The rigorous design and extensive objective measurements are significant innovations on the currently published research in this field and should lead to significant advances in tobacco regulatory science.

  • Impact of Very Low Nicotine Content Cigarettes in a Complex Marketplace

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This project will examine the impact of very low nicotine content (VLNC) cigarettes in a complex tobacco and nicotine product marketplace. We will compare the number of cigarettes smoked and cigarette-free days in an experimental marketplace that contains VLNC cigarettes versus normal nicotine content (NNC) cigarettes.

  • A Facebook Intervention for Young Sexual and Gender Minority Smokers

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The 2-year research plan will test the Put It Out Project (POP) in a pilot randomized trial (N=120) compared to TSP and two historical control conditions. Participants will be young adults who smoke, identify as sexual or gender minorities, and use Facebook. The primary outcome will be biochemically verified 7-day abstinence from smoking at 3 and 6 months. Secondary outcomes will be a quit attempt (y/n), stage of change, and thoughts about tobacco abstinence at 3 and 6 mos.

  • Cigarette Harm Reduction With Scheduled Electronic Cigarette Use

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This is an observational, crossover study that will be examine use behaviors, chemical exposures, and biological effects of SREC compared to TC use in subjects confined to a research ward setting.

  • Connection to Health for Smokers

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The goal of the study is to develop and test Connection to Health for Smokers (CTHS), a comprehensive program to support smokers to quit and improve smokers' general health. The program will be designed for implementation by health educators in community health centers.

  • Healing and Empowering Alaskan Lives Towards Healthy-Hearts Study

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This study aims to identify effective and cost-effective interventions for tobacco use and other risk behaviors for cardiovascular disease among Alaska Native people in rural villages. In a randomized controlled trial, the study will compare interventions using telemedicine to promote the American Heart Association's identified ideal health behaviors (nonsmoking and physical activity) relative to ideal health factors (managing cholesterol and blood pressure).

  • High Dose Bupropion for Smoking Cessation

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This study aims to investigate the benefit of administering Bupropion XL (BUP-XL) to heavy smokers who also experience psychiatric symptoms.

    at UCLA UCSD

  • Smoking Tobacco and Drinking Study

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This trial will test the efficacy of a 3-month intervention on Facebook targeting tobacco use and heavy episodic drinking against a 3-month Facebook intervention targeting tobacco use. Both groups will be offered a nicotine patch starter kit. The primary outcome is verified 7-day point prevalence abstinence from smoking at 3, 6, and 12 months.
