Veritas CohortVaping effects: Real-world International Surveillance

What is Veritas Cohort?
The VERITAS (Vaping effects: Real-world international surveillance) cohort study will be a 20-site, multi-country, 6+ year study of daily vapers who have smoked very little. The goal is to, for the first time, observe the health outcomes of exclusive vapers compared to controls with a history of no tobacco use. Outcome measures include clinical assessments of lung health, as well as self-reported health status and other measures.
To date, almost all assessments of the health of vapers have been among ex-smokers, where it is impossible to distinguish any small effects from vaping from the residual effects of long-term smoking. This study will allow us to test the hypothesis that vaping alone poses no measurable health effects.
More information, including the locations of specific research sites, will appear here as it becomes available.
