The data showed TNP was significantly more effective vs. no medication assisted quit attempts for males (odds ratio [OR] 1.37, 95% CI: 1.02, 1.83; P=0.03) but not for females (OR 0.96, 95% CI: 0.71, 1.31; P=0.82).
Adverse events observed among adolescent smokers in the study were comparable to those seen in adult studies.
