- On May 4th, Judith J. Prochaska, PhD, MPH and Joan F. Hilton, ScD, MPH published a meta-analysis in the British Medical Journal that examined cardiovascular serious adverse events associated with varenicline use. In contrast to a meta-analysis published by Singh et al. last summer, the UCSF team found no clinically or statistically significant effect in serious cardiovascular events associated with using varenicline. The study was covered on the front page of the SF Chronicle, by Reuters, and a wide number of online news media outlets.
