Analysis: The PATH study may have lost its way on quitting smoking with e-cigs

A study that recently drew attention for concluding that vaping was a less successful cessation method than nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) or even going cold turkey may be undermined by potential flaws.

The researchers chose to depart from the clinical study focus undertaken in other cessation reviews such as the comprehensive and well-regarded Cochrane review. The broad, international Cochrane review suggested with “moderate confidence” that e-cigarettes are not only helpful in getting individuals to stop smoking, they are even more effective than prescription NRT, the current clinical standard.
