    Description

    This on-going prospective cohort study examines a wide range of individual-, social- and structural-level factors as predictors of risk and resilience for behavioral outcomes (licit and illicit substance use and sexual activity, etc.), mental health conditions (depressions, anxiety, etc.) and biological outcomes (HIV seroconversion, viral and bacterial STIs) in a NYC metro area based sample of emerging adult men. The study applies a theory of syndemic production to examine these overlapping health states in a cohort of racially/ethnically and socioeconomically diverse young men.

    Description

    Schizophrenic patients have a high rate of smoking and cognitive deficits which may be related to a decreased number or responsiveness of nicotinic receptors in their brains. Varenicline is a partial nicotinc agonist which is effects as an anti-smoking drug in cigarette smokers, although concerns have been raised about potential psychiatric side-effects. This data is from a double-blind placebo controlled study in 87 schizophrenic smokers to evaluate the effect of varenicline on measures of smoking, cognition, psychiatric symptoms, and side-effects in schizophrenic patients who are cigarette smokers.
