Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Plasma Concentration [ Time Frame: During the last dosing interval (hour 11-12 post-dose) ]
    Cmax, which is the maximum (peak) concentration (amount of drug) measurable in blood plasma after a dose is administered measured in nanograms/milliliter (ng/ml)

  • Average Concentration [ Time Frame: During the last dosing interval (hour 11-12 post-dose) ]
    Pharmacokinetic measurement - average concentration during the last dosing interval (AUCtau)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time of Maximum Concentration [ Time Frame: During the last dosing interval (hour 11-12 post-dose) ]
    The time at which maximum concentration is reached (Tmax)

  • Minimum Plasma Concentration [ Time Frame: During the last dosing interval (hour 11-12 post-dose) ]
    The minimum nicotine plasma concentration during the last dosing interval (Cmin)

  • Peak-Trough Fluctuation [ Time Frame: During the last dosing interval (hour 11-12 post-dose) ]
    Percent of peak-trough fluctuation over one dosing interval at steady state (PTF)

  • Nicotine Plasma Concentration [ Time Frame: One hour after start of treatment ]
    The nicotine concentration in plasma (area under the nicotine plasma concentration curve) 1 hour after start of treatment

Detailed Description:
This study compares a new oral Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) product with NiQuitin™ lozenge 4 mg and Nicorette®gum 4 mg, after 12 hours of nicotine abstinence, with respect to steady-state nicotine pharmacokinetics, during 12 hours after start of the first administration. Multiple doses of each treatment are given once hourly during five separate treatment visits scheduled in a crossover setting with randomized treatment sequences. The study will include 40 healthy smokers between 18-50 years, who have been smoking at least 20 cigarettes daily during at least one year preceding inclusion. Subjects and study personnel will be aware of which treatment is administered at a given visit.
