CAMH scientists contribute to major international study on smoking behaviours

CAMH scientists, John Vincent, James Kennedy, and John Strauss contributed to an important international study released today in Nature Genetics. A study of smoking-related behavioral traits in a total sample of 41,150 individuals drawn from 20 disease, population, and control cohorts confirmed that three genes are strongly associated with the number of cigarettes smoked per day. They are also associated with smoking initiation, dependence and cessation.
