A pro­posed study will see if elec­tronic cig­a­rettes and nico­tine patches can help to­bacco smok­ers quit. E-cig­a­rettes are de­vices that let the user in­hale nico­tine with less harm­ful chem­i­cals than found in to­bacco. The re­search, which will be car­ried out by the Na­tional In­sti­tute for Health In­no­va­tion, will be the largest trial of e-cig­a­rettes used for quit­ting con­ducted any­where in the world. The re­searchers are hop­ing to re­cruit 1800 peo­ple to take part in the trial.
