The article reports that nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is effective in both men and women. Studies were selected if they were randomized, doubleblind, placebo-controlled trials that reported treatment outcomes, validated smoking status with biochemical tests or collateral reports and included men and women. Nicotine replacement therapy increases the proportion of persons giving up smoking more than placebo at 3, 6, and 12 months. In men, the difference between NRT and placebo is statistically significant at each follow-up point.
