CoEHAR is launching the Pilot for the groundbreaking Veritas Cohort Study, which will try to identify if there are any harmful effects of long-term regular vaping on respiratory health or other endpoints for people who never smoked or smoked less than 100 cigarettes in their lifetime.
CoEHAR is a unique multidisciplinary research center focused on the study of Tobacco Harm Reduction. Innovation, peer-review research, and globalization of ideas are at the core of CoEHAR actions.
Established in 2018 at the University of Catania, CoEHAR has a large network of international collaborations with experts from different fields and countries. CoEHAR mission is to create a new global, shared and controlled science that can improve its applications with specific solutions for the needs of each country and territory.
Little is known about the effects of long-term regular vaping on respiratory health, especially in the absence of any smoking history.
CoEHAR and other recognized global research entities have conducted short and medium-term studies regarding the effects of vaping on people who switch from smoking to nicotine vaping devices.
Therefore, extensive long-term prospective studies of well-characterized e-cigarette users without a history of tobacco smoking are needed.
This pilot study could determine the viability of assembling a numerous cohort to evaluate such health effects through a global online survey.
Do you want to know if e-cigarettes are good or bad for your health? Join our online study and help us find out the truth! We are looking for 250 people in six regions of the world who has been using e-cigarettes for at least three months and have never smoked or used any other tobacco products. We are also looking for people who have never used e-cigarettes nor smoked in their life. We will ask you some questions about your health status, the type of e-cigarette you use and the flavors you prefer. The study is coordinated by the CoEHAR in collaboration with volunteers located in six different regions of the world. Don’t miss this opportunity to contribute to science and your health!
