CRE Continues its Review of Initiation/Cessation Studies Identified by FDA: Trinidad

Oct 25, 2010

CRE has completed its review of:

Do the Majority of Asian-American and African-American Smokers Start as Adults? ”


Dennis R Trinidad, Elizabeth A Gilpin, Lora Lee, John P Pierce

Although the study concluded that significant ethnic disparities exist in relation to when people start smoking, with the majority of Asians/Pacific Islanders (A/PI) and African Americans (AA) initiating as young adults, CRE believes that a very serious shortcoming of the study is that the authors failed to conduct any analyses to determine the reasons for different start ages among ethnic groups. Family and cultural considerations could play a determinant role.
