Review: Nicotine replacement therapy increases CVD events; bupropion and varenicline do not.

Diverse strategies targeting α7 homomeric and α6β2* heteromeric nicotinic acetylcholine receptors for smoking cessation
Mon, 14 Apr 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
Preclinical studies suggest that a diversity of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) with different sensitivities to nicotine may contribute to tobacco addiction. Using rodent intravenous nicotine self‐administration as a preclinical model with good predictive validity for therapeutic efficacy for tobacco cessation, investigators have identified heteromeric α6β2* and homomeric α7 nAChRs as promising novel therapeutic targets to promote smoking abstinence (*denotes possible assembly with other subunits). The data suggest that diverse strategies that target these subclasses of nAChRs, namely inhibition of α6β2* nAChRs and stimulation of α7 nAChRs, will support tobacco cessation. α6β2* nAChRs, members of the high‐affinity family of β2* nAChRs, function similarly to α4β2* ...

Abstract

Drug effects on multiple and concurrent schedules of ethanol‐ and food‐maintained behavior: context dependent selectivity
Fri, 04 Apr 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | British Journal of Pharmacology
Conclusions and implicationsResults are consistent with those seen following fluvoxamine and varenicline administration, and suggest that selectivity is assay‐dependent. These results indicate the need for careful interpretation of selective drug effects, especially when obtained in situations where ethanol or the alternative is the only programmed reinforcement available.

Interventions for preoperative smoking cessation.
Thu, 27 Mar 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews
CONCLUSIONS: There is evidence that preoperative smoking interventions providing behavioural support and offering NRT increase short-term smoking cessation and may reduce postoperative morbidity. One trial of varenicline begun shortly before surgery has shown a benefit on long-term cessation but did not detect an effect on early abstinence or on postoperative complications. The optimal preoperative intervention intensity remains unknown. Based on indirect comparisons and evidence from two small trials, interventions that begin four to eight weeks before surgery, include weekly counselling and use NRT are more likely to have an impact on complications and on long-term smoking cessation.

Twelve weeks of smoking cessation therapy with varenicline increases the serum levels of apolipoprotein A-I only in the success group.
Mon, 24 Mar 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Journal of Cardiology
CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that successful smoking cessation therapy with varenicline improves serum apoA-I and HDL-C levels in the short term.

Conclusions:

Effects of varenicline, nicotine or placebo on depressive symptoms in postmenopausal smokers.
Sat, 15 Mar 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | American Journal on Addictions
CONCLUSION: CESD score were lower in those receiving varenicline, whether this is due to an anti-depressant effect, subject selection, use of relaxation or another cause is unknown. Varenicline does not increase depressive symptoms during smoking cessation in postmenopausal women without current MDD. Subjects with a LH-MDD are susceptible to developing depressive symptoms during smoking cessation, regardless of pharmacologic aid.

Varenicline decreases ethanol intake and increases dopamine release via neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in the nucleus accumbens
Fri, 14 Mar 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | British Journal of Pharmacology
CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONSFollowing long‐term ethanol consumption, varenicline in the NAc reduces ethanol intake suggesting that pre‐synaptic nAChRs in the NAc are important for mediating varenicline's effects on ethanol consumption. (Source: British Journal of Pharmacology)
