Study Type Interventional
Study Design Allocation: Randomized;   Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment;   Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator);   Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition Smoking Cessation
Interventions Drug: placebo
Drug: Varenicline
Enrollment 714
Recruitment Details The study was conducted in outpatients. The target population was cigarette smokers with cardiovascular disease drawn from the communities surrounding the participating clinics.
Pre-assignment Details 714 smokers were randomized (ie, assigned to study treatment), 11 participants were randomized, but not treated. The reasons for participants being randomized, not treated included no longer willing to participate in the study (5 participants), protocol violation (3 participants), lost to follow-up (1 participant), and other (2 participants).

1.Primary Outcome
Title Number of Responders With Carbon Monoxide (CO) Confirmed 4-week Continuous Quit Rate (CQR) for Last 4 Weeks of Treatment (Trtmt)
Hide Description Participants considered Responders (4-week CQR <=10 parts per million <ppm>) through reports of cigarette or other nicotine use since last study visit, confirmed by measurement of end-expiratory exhaled carbon monoxide (CO). If any CO measurement at a particular timepoint was >10 ppm, subject was considered to be Non-Responder at that timepoint.
Time Frame weeks 9 through 12
Hide Outcome Measure Data
Hide Analysis Population Description
Primary analysis population (Modified Intent-to-Treat) included all participants who took at least 1 dose randomized study medication. Participants who discontinued study were assumed smokers from timepoint of discontinuation through end of study. Modified Intent-to-Treat population is referred to as "All Participants" population in this report.
