Title (EN) SYSTEM FOR EFFECTING SMOKE CESSATION
(FR) SYSTEME PERMETTANT D'ARRETER DE FUMER
Abstract:
(EN) A system is disclosed which makes it possible for a patient to be delivered gradually reduced amounts of nicotine over time thereby allowing the patient to be gradually weaned off of dependence on nicotine and quit smoking. The system is comprised of a means for aerosolizing a formulation and containers of formulation. The formulation is comprised of nicotine in a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier. Preferably, a plurality of containers are produced wherein the concentration of nicotine in the different containers oR different groups of containers is reduced. The patient uses containers with the highest concentration initially and gradually moves towards using containers with lower and lower concentrations of nicotine until the patient's dependence on nicotine is eliminated.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système permettant à un patient de recevoir, de façon espacée dans le temps, des doses de nicotine graduellement réduites, ce qui permet de sevrer progressivement le patient pour supprimer sa dépendance vis-à-vis de la nicotine, et donc lui permettre d'arrêter de fumer. Ledit système comprend des moyens permettant de transformer une formulation en aérosol ainsi que des récipients destinés à contenir ladite formulation. Cette formulation renferme de la nicotine incorporée dans un excipient pharmaceutiquement acceptable. De préférence, on produit une pluralité de récipients, la concentration en nicotine des différents récipients appartenant à différents groupes de récipients allant en s'amenuisant. Le patient commence donc par utiliser les récipients ayant la concentration la plus élevée, puis il utilise progressivement les récipients ayant une concentration en nicotine de moins en moins forte, jusqu'à stopper sa dépendance vis-à-vis de la nicotine.
