Our team of professionals are trained to conduct clinical trials for people who want to quit smoking.
Our trials test medications, behavioral approaches and various combinations of both in an attempt to find the most effective smoking cessation treatment. Our staff is also trained to conduct behavioral counseling.
The BuZonE RCT Study
The main purpose of this research study is to see if taking a combination of zonisamide and bupropion for a short time helps you switch to using only an e-cigarette. Zonisamide is a drug approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of seizures. Bupropion (also known as Zyban) is a drug approved by the FDA for use as an aid to quit smoking (but not for switching from combustible cigarettes to e-cigarettes). The use of the combination of zonisamide and bupropion is not FDA approved for the purpose of switching from combustible cigarettes to e-cigarette use and is therefore considered investigational for this study.
