  1. Biochemical validation of smoking status: pros, cons, and data from low-intensity intervention trials.

    Article - En anglais

    Biochemical validation of smoking status has long been considered essential, but recent reports have questioned its utility in certain kinds of field trials.

    We describe efforts to biochemically validate self-reports of smoking cessation from participants in four large-scale randomized trials in outpatient clinics, hospitals, worksites, and dental clinics.

    These studies included over 5,000 adult smokers who participated in the population-based low-intensity intervention evaluations.

    At a 1-year follow-up, 798 subjects reported no tobacco use.

    We attempted to verify these reports using saliva cotinine/carbon monoxide validation procedures.
