Smoking study

21 March 2005

UCL's Health Behaviour Unit, based in the Department of Epidemiology & Public Health, are looking for volunteers to take part in a smoking research study.

The study aims to investigate the levels of chemicals in the UK's most popular brands of cigarettes, which claim to contain either high or low levels of carcinogenic substances.

Volunteers must be current, daily cigarette smokers between the ages of 18 and 50 and in good health, with reliable transportation and willing to answer questions, collect their own cigarette butts for one day, and provide urine, saliva and breath samples.

Participation in the study - which is paid - includes one day of smoking your own cigarettes and two laboratory sessions at the Department of Epidemiology & Public Health at 1-19 Torrington Place. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call +44 (0)20 7679 6645, weekdays 10am-5pm, and ask for the TSNA Study.
