Researchers at the Clinical Trials Research Unit, The University of Auckland, are conducting a study of electronic cigarettes to see if they can help smokers to quit.

Associate Professor Chris Bullen explains: “E-cigarettes are battery operated vaporising devices that are now widely available from malls, internet and supermarkets - but we don't know if they actually help smokers to quit, and how they compare to nicotine patches. Our study [ASCEND] is trying to find answers.”

Researchers are recruiting around 650 people from Auckland.

Interested people can call 0508 ASCEND or 0508 272 363 to find out whether they are eligible and more about what the study involves.
