Fetal safety of nicotine replacement therapy in pregnancy: systematic review and meta-analysis.

Addiction 2020 Jul 4. Epub 2020 Jul 4.

Division of Primary Care, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of Nottingham, UK.

Background And Aims: Smoking in pregnancy causes substantial avoidable harm to mothers and offspring; nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) may prevent this and is used to help women quit. A recently updated Cochrane review of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) investigating impacts of NRT in pregnancy focuses primarily on efficacy data but also reports adverse impacts from NRT. Here we identify and summarise NRT impacts on adverse pregnancy outcomes reported in non-randomised controlled trials (non-RCTs). Read More

Drug-related harm coinciding with income assistance payments: results from a community-based cohort of people who use drugs.

Addiction 2020 Jul 3. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

British Columbia Centre on Substance Use, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Background And Aims: Income assistance is critical to the health and well-being of socioeconomically marginalized people who use illicit drugs (PWUD). However, past literature paradoxically identifies unintended increases in drug-related harm coinciding with synchronized payments that may magnify signals for drug use. The scope of such harm has not been fully characterized among non-institutionalized populations. Read More

Bidirectional effects between loneliness, smoking and alcohol use: evidence from a Mendelian randomization study.

Addiction 2020 Jun 15. Epub 2020 Jun 15.

Department of Psychiatry, Amsterdam UMC, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Background And Aims: Loneliness is associated with cigarette smoking and problematic alcohol use. Observational evidence suggests these associations arise because loneliness increases substance use; however, there is potential for reverse causation (problematic drinking damages social networks, leading to loneliness). With conventional epidemiological methods, controlling for (residual) confounding and reverse causality is difficult. Read More

Systematic review of the emerging literature on the effectiveness of naloxone access laws in the United States.

Addiction 2020 Jun 13. Epub 2020 Jun 13.

Background And Aims: Naloxone access laws (NALs) have been suggested to be an important strategy to reduce opioid-related harm. We describe the evolution of NALs across states and over time and review existing evidence of their overall association with naloxone distribution and opioid overdose as well as the potential effects of specific NAL components.

Methods: Descriptive analysis of temporal variation in US regional adoption of NAL components, accompanied by a systematic search of 13 databases for studies (published between 2005 and 20 December 2019) assessing the effects of NALs on naloxone distribution or opioid-related health outcomes.
