New articles supported by the SCTS seed grants
SCTS is helping several of its seed grantees writing research articles. Up to date, two grantees have successfully published research articles from their projects:
1. Hamadeh RR, Ansari AA, Jahrami H, Offi AA. Cigarette and waterpipe smoking among adult patients with severe and persistent mental illness in Bahrain: a comparison with the National Non-communicable Diseases Risk Factors Survey. BMC Res Notes 2016;9(1):77. doi: 10.1186/s13104-016-1894-9.
2. Khemiss M, Ben Khelifa M, Ben Rejeb M, Ben Saad H. Periodontal bone height of exclusive narghile smokers compared with exclusive cigarette smokers. Libyan J Med 2016;11:31689. doi: 10.3402/ljm.v11.31689.
The objective of the seed grants was to support research projects developed and conducted by tobacco researchers working in the Middle East. These projects addressed diverse and important aspects of tobacco use and control in the region, especially those pertaining to waterpipe smoking.
