Study to Understand Susceptibility to Periodontal Disease due to Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems Usage

To protect human health, Chemical Insights Research Institute of Underwriters Laboratories, in partnership with Purdue University and Georgia State University, has been awarded a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to establish the risk factors and biomarkers of gingival inflammation, the precursor to periodontal disease, associated with ENDS (i.e. e-cigarettes and vapes) usage. This study aims to understand oral disease onset to allow for early screening and development of treatment options.

If you are 18-30 years old and are a vape user, you might be eligible to participate in this paid research study. Please complete a questionnaire or call Ms. Smart at 610-356-1800 to screen over the phone to see if you qualify for the study. Contact the recruitment firm for more information on participation.
