The Duke Center for Smoking Cessation runs clinical trials to help research new ways to help smokers break their addiction to nicotine. Some studies aim for participants to actively quit smoking, while others no not require participants to attempt to quit. These sorts of studies do provide, however, valuable information that assists our investigators in developing new cessation treatments. In navigating this section, you’ll see descriptions of the studies that are currently ongoing and for which we are actively recruiting. If interested in participating in one of our studies, please call 1 (888) 525-DUKE (3853).
Right now, we are currently running a study for individuals who are motivated to quit, using the weight loss drug lorcaserin. More information can be found here
