    In this interview he discusses that study, as well as the follow-on study just completed using 300 smokers to determine effects of using an e-cigarette to reduce CPD and/or stop smoking.

    Smoking Cessation and Reduction With an Electronic Nicotine Delivery Device (ENDD) - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov

    He also discusses another project, looking at carcinogens and toxins in the blood of smokers, comparing to blood from e-cigarette users.
    In the video interview with Dr. Polosa, at around 3.03 minutes, Dr.Polosa is telling he is doing the project (looking at carcinogens and toxins in the blood of smokers, comparing to blood from e-cigarette users) together with the National Health Institute of…….. (?) Holland. Vocalek, do you maybe know if this “Holland” is correct? I should be very suprised if it's indeed correct.

    It does sound as if he is saying Holland. I'll write and ask him.

    It's funny what might inspire someone to donate to CASAA.
    For some reason this last comment was such an inspiration for me.


    Elaine, it seems you are becoming quite prominent in the Harm Reduction arena.
    And of course, by extension, so is CASAA.

    (Not to belittle the efforts of all the other CASAA board members)

    But I have to wonder...

    Have you received any death threats from Big Pharma?
    Or Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids?
    Or the American Lung Association?

    Because I assume they don't like you very much.

    No, they just ignore me and hope I'll go away.

    But I won't.

    Maybe we need to make you harder to ignore...
    Have you ever thought of getting a mohawk and wearing a ball gown?

    You are quite welcome. Here is Dr. Polosa's response:

    Dear Elaine,

    Holland is correct... see my contacts for this study below...

    We are measuring levels of nicotine and carcinogens in the blood of cannulated participants/smokers. Below is my dutch partner for this project...

    Eugène HJM Jansen, PhD
    Laboratory for Health Protection Research National Institute for Public Health and the Environment PO Box 1, 3720 BA Bilthoven, the Netherlands

    I hope this helps.
