Varenicline In-Patient Study
A Two-Part Pilot Study of Dosing, Safety and Efficacy of Varenicline Initiated During an Acute Smoke-free Hospitalization and Continued Post-Hospitalization
This Investigator Initiated Research Award (IIR Award #WS981308) is a two-part pilot study that aims to examine acceptability and feasibility of varenicline use during an acute (72-hr) smoke-free hospitalization (Part 1) and 4-weeks post-hospitalization (Part 2).
The sample will be hospitalized patients smoking at least 10 cigarettes/day prior to hospitalization. Intention to quit smoking will not be required for study participation. Using a double-blinded, placebo-controlled, randomized design, participants will receive varenicline (0.5 mg BID as tolerated) or placebo during their hospitalization (Part 1) and will continue their study medication (placebo or active drug) for 4 weeks post-hospitalization (Part 2). Abstinence status will be examined at 4 weeks post-hospitalization.
