NICOTINEgen (Nutrition and Stimulants)
Preventive genetic test against nicotine addiction
The NICOTINEgen profile characterizes genetic variations in the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor associated with nicotine addiction. Results allow to define the risk of addiction and to facilitate the choice between a nicotine replacement therapy (patches or chewing-gum containing nicotine) or a medical therapy (e.g. bupropion or varenicline).
