No evidence that heated tobacco product use is effective for cessation

Tattan-Birch H, Hartmann-Boyce J, Kock L, et al. Heated tobacco products for smoking cessation and reducing smoking prevalence. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. Published: 06 January 2022

Cochrane Reviewers found “No studies reported on cigarette smoking cessation, so the effectiveness of heated tobacco for this purpose remains uncertain. There was insufficient evidence for differences in risk of adverse or serious adverse events between people randomized to switch to heated tobacco, smoke cigarettes, or attempt tobacco abstinence in the short‐term.”
