A recent Cochrane Review has found evidence that electronic cigarettes may help as an aid to smokers who wish to stop or reduce smoking.

Co-author of the publication "Electronic cigarettes for smoking cessation and reduction" and SPCR doctoral student Jamie Hartmann-Boyce was interviewed on Radio 4's Today Programme (01:31.27) this morning. She also appeared on Channel 4 news (Can e-cigarettes help you quit smoking?) 

The Cochrane Collaboration have issued a press release and further news is published by the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford. 

Although this review is not funded by the SPCR, Jamie Hartmann-Boyce is funded as a SPCR DPhil student to explore the interface between health services and self-management of weight as part of her doctoral research, this study into e-cigarettes is not funded by the School.
