Executive Summary

NICOTINE PATCH BRIEF EXPOSURE IN CHILDREN LED TO "FEW IF ANY" SYMPTOMS in a two-year postmarketing surveillance study of accidental exposures reported to 34 U.S. poison control centers, researchers Alan Woolf, MD, Harvard Medical School, et al. conclude. "In this series of pediatric patients, unintentional and brief (20 minutes or less) exposures to used TNPs [transdermal nicotine patches] resulted in few if any medical symptoms," they report. Published in the May issue of Pediatrics, the study was funded with a grant from ProStep marketer Lederle Labs to the American Association of Poison Control Centers.
