Below, please find a description of Dr. Streck’s presentation:

While cigarette smoking has declined in the US population, sale and consumption of non-cigarette alternative nicotine/tobacco products (ATPs; e.g., e-cigarettes, cigars) is on the rise. Emerging research demonstrates that cancer patients are using e-cigarettes, however little work has quantified the diverse spectrum of ATPs used among cancer patients nor factors associated with use. The aims of this presentation were to investigate prevalence of cigarette and ATP use, and factors associated with current use, among cancer patients enrolled in multiple cancer clinical trials.
