Receive a payment of £370 for your time and commitment

We are conducting a clinical trial, on behalf of British American Tobacco Ltd., in healthy male and female volunteers aged between 19 to 55 who are Vype users.

You will be paid for your time and commitment if you take part in this clinical trial.

Trial summary

The aim of this clinical trial is to compare ‘health effect indicators’ (biomarkers) in healthy adult volunteers who use Vype e-Pen3 and/or e-Pods versus healthy adult volunteers who smoke and to compare these results with volunteers who have quit smoking and those who have never smoked.

The trial will involve you staying with us for a couple of days (see below) at our private medical facility in London Bridge.

During your stay, we will conduct safety assessments and collect blood and urine samples to assess ‘health effect indicators’.

This is not a trial of new medicine.

Register for this clinical trial

If you are interested in participating in the trial:-

  • You will need to attend a screening appointment so we can check if you are suitable to take part in the trial. At this appointment we perform a number of tests including, taking blood, checking your heart, and carrying out a physical examination to see if you will be OK to take part in the clinical trial. We will have all of the information we need on the day of the screening to determine if you would be suitable to take part in the study.
  • If you are assessed as being suitable and wish to carry on into the study, you would stay with us for a further 24-36hrs from the time of your screening appointment. This means your time commitment will be of approximately 2 days / 1 night in our clinical research unit from the time of screening to the end of the in-house part of the trial.
  • By running the study in this way, it means you only have to make one combined visit to the unit for screening and the study itself.
  • During your stay with us, we will conduct a number of assessments including blood and urine samples to assess ‘health effect indicators’ between the groups.
  • Once you leave the clinical research unit, you will receive a follow-up phone call within 7 days after being discharged for a final telephone discussion with a doctor.
