A Statement from GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare on 2008 Update to the U.S. Public Health Service Guideline on Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence
Date:5/7/2008

PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Consumer Healthcare, marketer of the leading smoking cessation products including Nicorette(R) gum, NicoDerm(R) CQ(R) patch, and Commit(R) lozenge, applauds the release of the updated 2008 U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) Guideline on Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence.

The updated Guideline reflects the distillation of thousands of research articles, and continues to recommend nicotine replacement products (NRT), such as Nicorette gum and NicoDerm CQ patch, as a first-line therapy for quitting, as they "increase significantly rates of long-term smoking abstinence."(1)

GlaxoSmithKline's NRT brands offer a step-down therapy to help smokers break their dependence on tobacco and safely wean off nicotine. Clinical trials have demonstrated that these brands double a smoker's chances of quitting versus placebo.(2) They are extensively proven to significantly reduce cravings and other withdrawal symptoms during quitting, allowing smokers to foc
