Scientist at The Fienstein Instute for Medical Research Discovers Quitting Smoking Promotes Anti-Inflammatory Response
Date:8/27/2009

July 2005, she began her collaboration with The Center for Tobacco Control. They wanted to understand why many people can't quit smoking. Dr. Metz thought that the body undergoes an inflammatory response to quitting, which could present an obvious obstacle to their success. (Less than 10 percent of people can quit smoking on their own, while 'assisted' medical and psychological treatments have success rates of about 30 percent.) In addition, they wanted to identify whether inflammatory markers decline after quitting smoking.
   
For this study, they recruited 45 women between the ages of 35-75 who smoked at least a pack of cigarettes a day and had risk factors for cardiovascular disease such as hypertension, high cholesterol, stroke, and/or abdominal obesity. All participants wanted to quit smoking and participated in a smoking cessation program at the Center for Tobacco Control. This program is the only free smoking cessation program available in Nassau County. Participants pay for the treatment medications, but not for counseling). The program receives referrals from The American Cancer Society, The American Lung Association, The Nassau Department of Health, The Suffolk County Department of Health, The New York State Smoker's Quitline, and the physicians/nurses of the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System (NSLIJHS). Study subjects filled out a health history and blood was collected at the initial visit and again within the first 72 hours of quitting. As part of the smoking cessation study, they were given the option to use a nicotine patch and/or Zyban, which is an antidepressant shown to have beneficial effects on blocking nicotine cravings. Counseling was also provided.
   
The results of the study were published in the July 30 issue of Chest.
