Presentation Transcript

  1. That Patient Who Will Not Quit – A New Treatment Option April 18, 2007 Michael C. Fiore, MD, MPH Professor of Medicine Director, Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health

  2. Disclosure Statement Over the last year, I have served as an investigator in research studies at the University of Wisconsin that were funded by Pfizer. In 1998, I was appointed to a named Chair made possible by an unrestricted gift to UW from GlaxoWellcome to the University of Wisconsin.

  3. Case Study Mr. and Mrs. S • Both late 60s • Both NIDDM • Both Hyperlipidemia • Both BMIs over 35 • Both smoke more than a ppd and have tried to quit many times

  4. A New Quit Attempt • Varenicline • Quit Line

  5. Varenicline • Approved by FDA in May, 2006 • Marketed as Chantix • A non-nicotine medication • A selective 42 Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptor Partial Agonist

  6. Varenicline: A Highly Selective 42 Receptor Partial Agonist Nicotine Binding of nicotine at the 42 nicotinic receptor in the Ventral Tegmental Area (VTA) is believed to cause release of dopamine at the Nucleus Accumbens (nAcc) Chantix Chantix is an 42 nicotinic receptor partial agonist, a compound with dual agonist and antagonist activities. This is believed to result in both a lesser amount of dopamine release from the VTA at the nAcc as well as the prevention of nicotine binding at the 42 receptors
