Jamie Hartmann-Boyce was lead author on a recently published updated NIHR Cochrane Review that provides an independent assessment of the best available evidence to date about electronic cigarettes for quitting smoking.

The conclusions of this updated Cochrane Review are unchanged since the last review was published two years ago: electronic cigarettes may help smokers stop their smoking, and the included studies did not find any serious side effects associated with their use for up to two years.

Many studies are now underway which may help us understand more about their effects in the future.
