Clinical study on the VCU study involved 16 participants. To the subjects consumed alternately a cigarette of their favorite brand, as well as electric cigarettes the two US market leader. The participants were asked to take just 10 trains. After the nicotine levels in the blood, the heart rate and the desire were measured for an another cigarette over a period of an hour. Surprising results provided little to no nicotine both electric cigarettes.
The medium nicotine level never rose above 3.5 ng/ml. For comparison: nicotine measured was a regular smoked tobacco cigarette around 20.0 ng/ml. The subjects also indicated that cigarettes nicotine hardly or not at all reduce the subjective desire after a new cigarette, or a new dose. In fact one of the reduced two tested Ecigarette brand desire although statistically significant, however by far not so much like a regular cigarette. Study design correctly chosen? Prof. Dr.
Eissenberg admits, however, that the results against the background of the test scenario with a defined and limited number of trains (10) to evaluate are, which do not necessarily reflect a real usage situation. He does not exclude that the electric cigarette in the reality in longer trains of more intense and frequent use provides very much larger amounts of nicotine. Taking into account this fact and other factors, the needs continue to investigate these electronic nicotine delivery devices is evident”. Regulation although no nicotine was Dr. Eissenberg remains challenged, considers that the marketing and sales of the electronic cigarette should be regulated. He criticized that the electrical cigarette in shopping malls and on the Internet is freely available and is subject to any State control. From his point of view is this practice contrary to other surrounding off nicotine products such as nicotine gum or nicotine patches, are subject to the all State regulations. “Other researchers disagree with study results Dr. Ben Thomas, another American expert in the field of smoke research contradicts the main finding, that the smoke” a cigarette contains no nicotine: we know that the customers of electric cigarettes inhale nicotine. This was confirmed by separate investigations of both the manufacturer and the FDA itself. Against this background, it is highly unlikely that any relevant dose of nicotine in the inhalant is contrary to the results of the VCU study “.” Contact: Markus Kreusch Blog: Bonner Talweg 52 D-53113 Bonn Tel.: 0228-30408925 m.kreuschatelektronische-zigaretten.net
