Welcome to the University of Vermont/Battelle Research Laboratory E-Cigarette Study webpage. The purpose of our study, funded by the US National Institutes of Health, is to determine whether withdrawal symptoms occur when e-cigarette users stop using e-cigarettes.
Previous research has not tested whether e-cigarettes will cause withdrawal symptoms or not. We do not know if e-cigarettes provide enough nicotine to produce a physical dependence that would cause withdrawal. To find out, our study will ask e-cigarette users to stop using their e-cigarettes for 6 days.
In order to participate, you must currently use e-cigarettes and be willing to come to one of our office locations (UVM campus in Burlington, VT or Battelle Research Laboratory in Baltimore, MD) for a 1.5hr first screening visit, and then if eligible, six 30-minute visits over 2 weeks.
