The objective of this study was to replicate the associations between the serotonin transporter genotypes and smoking cessation and between these genotypes and long-term smoking cessation success (for 2 years or more). Two case-control designs were used in this study. The first case-control design consisted of 47 ex-smokers (cases) and 94 smokers (controls). The second case-control design consisted of the 12 ex-smokers who had succeeded in long-term smoking cessation (cases) and the 24 smokers… CONTINUE READING
