Jamie Hartmann-Boyce and Nicola Lindson discuss emerging evidence in e-cigarette research and interview Professor Tim Coleman. This podcast is a companion to the electronic cigarettes Cochrane living systematic review and shares the evidence from the monthly searches.
In the May episode Jamie Hartmann-Boyce talks with Professor Tim Coleman from the University of Nottingham's Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. Professor and GP Tim Coleman discusses a study he is carrying out with colleagues from Queen Mary University of London which looks at helping pregnant women who smoke tobacco cigarettes quit smoking. This trial of 1140 pregnant women compares usual care of behavioural support plus nicotine patches to behavioural support plus e-cigarettes in women willing to receive help to stop smoking. This multi-centre randomised control trial is taking place in the UK and we will include the results in our Cochrane review when these become available.

Our May literature search found four new ongoing studies which may be relevant to our review when they are completed.
