Smoking Cessation Understanding and Treatment Algorithm

Smoking Cessation Overview
Smoking cessation is the process of discontinuing tobacco smoking. When a person smokes tobacco in cigarettes, cigars or pipes, they absorb toxins that can lead to various health problems such as diabetes, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart diseases, lung diseases, etc.
The main barrier to smoking cessation is nicotine addiction. Some of the most common nicotine withdrawal symptoms smokers face when they try to quit smoking include craving for smoking, mood swings, insomnia, constipation, increased appetite, anxiety, etc.

Smoking Cessation Symptoms
Stopping smoking brings about a variety of symptoms associated with physical and psychological withdrawal. Most symptoms decrease sharply during the first few days of quitting, followed by a continued, but slower rate of decline in the second and third week of abstinence. For some people, coping with withdrawal symptoms is like “riding a roller coaster”—there may be sharp turns, slow climbs, and unexpected plunges. Most symptoms pass within 2–4 weeks after stopping.

Smoking Cessation Treatment
The treatment of smoking includes various options such as nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), non-nicotinic pharmacological therapies, behavioral therapies, and counseling.
Varenicline (Champix) and bupropion-SR (Zyban) are approved for smoking cessation. Nortriptyline and clonidine are also used in smoking cessation as off-label medicines.
In the United States, NRT is available over the counter or by prescription as patches, gum, and lozenges, and by prescription only as a nasal spray and oral inhaler. NRT provides nicotine to reduce withdrawal symptoms, including irritability, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, dysphoria, hunger, weight gain, and sleep disturbances, which occur when a smoker stops smoking.
Non-pharmacological treatments for tobacco dependence include behavioral skills training using cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, motivational interviewing, and incentives to motivate and reinforce behavior change.

Smoking Cessation Epidemiology
The disease epidemiology covered in the report provides historical as well as forecasted epidemiology segmented by Total Diagnosed Prevalent Cases of Smokers, Gender-specific Diagnosed Prevalent Cases of Smokers, Age-specific Diagnosed Prevalent Cases of Smokers and Total Diagnosed Prevalent Cases of Smoking Cessation in the 7MM covering the United States, EU5 countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom), and Japan from 2017 to 2030.

Key Findings
• The total diagnosed prevalent population of Smoking Cessation in the 7MM was 49,301,950 in 2017.
• The United States showed the highest diagnosed prevalent cases of smokers, as compared to EU5, and Japan. In 2017, the number of smokers in the US was estimated to be 35,288,932.
• In the US, there were 19,303,046 diagnosed prevalent cases of smokers among males and 15,985,886 diagnosed prevalent cases among females in 2017.
• Out of the total 35,288,932 diagnosed prevalent cases of smokers in the US, the highest cases were observed in the age group 45–64 years (14,080,284) and the least cases were observed in 18-24 years (3,140,715) in the year 2017.
• Among the European-5 countries, Germany had the highest diagnosed prevalent population of smokers with 19,305,099 cases, followed by France with 14,044,812 cases. On the other hand, the United Kingdom had the lowest diagnosed prevalent population of 7,750,777 in 2017.

Smoking Cessation Marketed Drugs
Varenicline (Chantix/Champix): Pfizer
Varenicline is a medication used for smoking cessation aids. It works by blocking the pleasant effects of nicotine (from smoking) on the brain. It is used together with behavior modification and counseling support to help stop smoking. In May 2006, the US FDA approved varenicline (Chantix, Champix) for use in smoking cessation; it was the first oral non?nicotine treatment licensed by the FDA. It was also approved in the EU and Japan for smoking cessation. Patients should be treated with Chantix for 12 weeks. For patients who have successfully stopped smoking at the end of 12 weeks, an additional course of 12 weeks of treatment with Chantix is recommended to increase the likelihood of long-term abstinence further.
Varenicline binds with high affinity and selectivity at ?4?2 neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. The efficacy of Chantix in smoking cessation is believed to be the result of varenicline’s activity at the ?4?2 sub-type of the nicotinic receptor where its binding produces agonist activity, while simultaneously preventing nicotine binding to these receptors.

Bupropion (Zyban): GlaxoSmithKline
Bupropion is a selective inhibitor of the neuronal reuptake of catecholamines (noradrenaline and dopamine) with minimal effect on the re-uptake of indolamines (serotonin). It is indicated as an aid to smoking cessation treatment. The exact mechanism by which Zyban enhances the ability of patients to abstain from smoking is not known but is presumed to be related to noradrenergic and/or dopaminergic mechanisms. Bupropion is a relatively weak inhibitor of the neuronal reuptake of norepinephrine and dopamine and does not inhibit the reuptake of serotonin. Bupropion does not inhibit monoamine oxidase. The FDA approved it in 1997. It is also approved in the EU for the treatment of smoking cessation.

Smoking Cessation Emerging Drugs
AXS-05: Axsome Therapeutics
AXS-05 is a novel, oral, investigational NMDA receptor antagonist with multimodal activity, in clinical development for major depressive disorder (MDD), Alzheimer’s disease (AD) agitation, and smoking cessation. The drug consists of dextromethorphan (DM) and bupropion and utilizes Axsome’s metabolic inhibition technology. The DM component of AXS-05 is a non-competitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist, sigma-1 receptor agonist, and an inhibitor of the serotonin and norepinephrine transporters. The bupropion component of AXS-05 serves to increase the bioavailability of DM and is a norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibitor. Both components are nicotinic acetylcholine receptor antagonists and have demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties. The company plans to meet with the FDA in the second half of 2020 to discuss the continued clinical development of AXS-05 as an aid to smoking cessation treatment.

Nadolol (INV102): Chronic Airway Therapeutics
Nadolol (INV102) is a beta-adrenergic biased ligand targeted to reverse mucous metaplasia in the airway epithelium to treat chronic respiratory diseases. Used acutely, Nadolol blocks both ?1 and ?2 receptors, causing a decrease in heart rate and blood pressure via ?1 receptors, which are located predominantly in the heart, and causing airway constriction via ?2 receptors, located predominantly in the bronchial muscle of the airways. The drug is currently marketed under various brands including Corgard and Novo-Nadolol. The company evaluated nadolol in a phase II clinical trial, and results show that it is safe and effective in smoking cessation.

Cytisinicline (cytisine): Achieve Life Sciences
Cytisinicline (also known as cytisine) is an oral, plant-based alkaloid with a high binding affinity to the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor. It is an established smoking cessation treatment that has been approved and marketed in Central and Eastern Europe (as Tabex) for more than 20 years. Cytisinicline’s dual-acting MOA specifically targets the ?4?2 nicotine receptor. Through its partial agonist/partial antagonist activity, it is believed to help reduce nicotine cravings, withdrawal symptoms, and reward and satisfaction associated with smoking. The company is launching a phase III clinical trial in Q4 with designs and NDA plans already reviewed with the FDA. It was also studied in phase III clinical trial comparing cytosine and varenicline. Achieve Life Sciences also completed the development of phase II ORCA-V1 trial protocol to evaluate cytisinicline in this rapidly growing population of e-cigarette users. Currently, the company is pursuing non-dilutive funding sources to help support this initiative.

Smoking Cessation Market Outlook
There are effective treatments that support tobacco cessation, including both behavioral therapies and FDA-approved medications. There are 89 distinct products and services available today for smoking cessation, alongside 12 smoking alternatives that are not specifically indicated for cessation. FDA-approved pharmacotherapies include various forms of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) in the form of a transdermal patch, gum, nasal spray, oral inhaler, and lozenges; bupropion; and, most recently, varenicline. Nortriptyline and clonidine have been shown in clinical trials to promote smoking cessation, but regulatory authorities have not approved them for this purpose.
In the EU, varenicline (Champix) and bupropion-SR (Zyban) are approved for smoking cessation. Cytisine is a generic agent currently manufactured by Sopharma as Tabex and by Aflofarm Pharma as Desmoxan. It has been available both with and without prescription for smoking cessation since the 1960s, largely in Eastern Europe. The basic patent of Chantix/Champix is about to expire in 2021 in the EU and in 2022 in Japan. In Japan, varenicline (Champix), NRT, and some off-label therapies are used for smoking cessation. Bupropion-SR is not licensed in Japan for smoking cessation.
For smokeless tobacco users, counseling and support in changing behavior appear to be effective, while the evidence for nicotine replacement and other drugs is weak. Nonpharmacologic therapy, such as individual or group counseling, is necessary to address the important role of conditioning in tobacco addiction, which is not completely addressed using pharmacologic means. Briefly, ideal characteristics of effective nonpharmacologic treatment include those that improve skills necessary to achieve and maintain abstinence, such as those that teach coping mechanisms for craving and aversive abstinence symptoms.
