Dr. Patricia Cioe and CAAS colleagues were notified that A PILOT STUDY TO EXAMINE THE ACCEPTABILITY AND HEALTH EFFECTS OF ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES IN HIV-POSITIVE SMOKERS has been accepted for publication in Drug and Alcohol Dependence. This is the first study to examine the use of electronic cigarettes as a method of harm reduction in HIV-positive smokers who are unable or unwilling to quit smoking. The study demonstrated that cigarettes smoked per day were reduced by more than 80% overall and 37% of participants completely transitioned to e-cigs, completely eliminating combustible tobacco.
