UCLA researchers are currently seeking smokers over 18 years old to test a vaccine to help quit smoking.
“Only 10-20 percent of smokers successfully quit so new methods, beyond the patch and nicotine gum, are truly needed,” said Dr. Donald Tashkin, principal investigator and professor of pulmonary and critical care medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
Volunteers must be in good health, smoke at least 15 cigarettes a day and want to quit. Some volunteers will receive the NicVAX vaccine; others will get a placebo.
