Electronic Cigarette Prevalence and Patterns of Use in Adults with a History of Cardiovascular Disease in the United States
Individuals with CVD who recently quit smoking or reported a recent quit attempt were significantly more likely to use e‐cigarette than current smokers and those who did not report a quit attempt, indicating that this population is using e‐cigarettes as an aid to smoking cessation.
How do we determine the impact of e‐cigarettes on cigarette smoking cessation or reduction? Review and recommendations for answering the research question with scientific rigor
AIMS To propose a hierarchy of methodological criteria to consider when determining whether a study provides sufficient information to answer the question of whether e-cigarettes can facilitate
Electronic cigarette survey characteristics
The surveys reviewed in this project had significant variability in study design, survey population, and study goals, which limit the external validity of survey studies on EC.
Electronic cigarettes and lung toxicity
The public and the medical profession need more information about the long-term complications associated with the use of e-cigarettes and their benefit in smoking cessation efforts.
Innovative public health response to an event on the fringe of regulatory changes
In this situation, public health advised exhibition proprietors of potential event disruption implicated by forthcoming regulatory changes, and subsequent cancellation of the event prevented potential adverse health impacts for at-risk groups.


Electronic Cigarettes Efficacy and Safety at 12 Months: Cohort Study
If e-cigarette safety will be confirmed, however, the use of e-cigarettes alone may facilitate quitters remaining so, although e-smokers showed a minimal but significantly higher increase in self-rated health than other smokers.
Effect of an electronic nicotine delivery device (e-Cigarette) on smoking reduction and cessation: a prospective 6-month pilot study
The use of e-Cigarette substantially decreased cigarette consumption without causing significant side effects in smokers not intending to quit, and perception and acceptance of the product was good.
E-Cigarettes and Smoking Cessation: Evidence from a Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Use of e-cigarettes is associated with smoking cessation and reduction, and more randomised controlled trials are needed to assess effectiveness against other cessation methods.
Successful smoking cessation with electronic cigarettes in smokers with a documented history of recurring relapses: a case series
This is the first time that objective measures of smoking cessation are reported for smokers who quit successfully after using an E-cigarette.
Study protocol for a randomised controlled trial of electronic cigarettes versus nicotine patch for smoking cessation
This trial will inform international debate and policy on the regulation and availability of e-cigarettes if shown to be efficacious and safe, these devices could help many smokers as an alternative smoking cessation aid to standard nicotine products.

A diverse young adult sample of current everyday smokers, who were not ready to quit, was able to reduce smoking with the help of ECs, adding knowledge to current literature on the feasibility of using ECs to aid smoking reduction among young smokers in US urban populations.
EffiCiency and Safety of an eLectronic cigAreTte (ECLAT) as Tobacco Cigarettes Substitute: A Prospective 12-Month Randomized Control Design Study
In smokers not intending to quit, the use of e-cigarettes, with or without nicotine, decreased cigarette consumption and elicited enduring tobacco abstinence without causing significant side effects.
