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 Embera Study
The purpose of the Embera study is to see if using a combination of two medications may help you quit smoking. Both medications (metyrapone and oxazepam) are Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved, but not specifically to help people quit smoking. Metyrapone is a drug used to test hypothalamic-pituitary ACTH function and oxazepam is a drug used to treat anxiety or alcohol withdrawal symptoms. The use of these drugs together is investigational and has not been approved by the FDA.

- Have not used any electronic cigarettes, vapes, chewing tobacco, cigars, pipes, hookahs, or nicotine replacement therapy (nicotine patches, lozenges, gum, etc.) in the last 2 weeks.

The COCO Study
The main purpose of this research study is to compare the measured amount of carbon monoxide (CO) in your exhaled breath between two different CO monitors and compare these to the amount of carbon monoxide in your blood measured directly from a sample of blood from your vein. Both of the CO monitors being used in this study are approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Another purpose of this research study is to evaluate a new mobile app called eResearch. This app was developed by Rose Research Center to conduct remote research. .
