Tobacco dependence: Fundamental concepts and recent advances

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The past few years have witnessed remarkable continuing progress in our understanding of the pathogenesis of nicotine dependence and withdrawal and the ability to treat these disorders. In particular, a better understanding of populations at special risk, the advent of effective over-the-counter medications and the recent approval of several new medications has greatly increased the ability of health professionals to rationally diagnose and effectively treat their tobacco-using patients.
