China will publish its latest edition of clinical smoking cessation guidelines in the near future, to assist medical personnel in providing smoking cessation services to patients. China currently has 350 million (tobacco) smokers, and an estimated 1 million deaths per year from smoking related diseases. According to the report 36% of Chinese adults smoke and 66% of adult males have a history of smoking. An additional 540 million people in China are exposed to second hand smoke. In China, smoking cessation drugs only account for 0.1% of prescriptions at respiratory departments, while ex-China rates approach 25%. According to GBI SOURCE, Johnson & Johnson introduced Nicorette (nicotine gum and patch) to China in July 2009. Other smoking cessation aids include the Novartis Nicotine Transdermal System Stop Smoking Aid Patch - brought to China in 2007, and Pfizer\'s Champix (varenicline), a nicotinic receptor partial agonist which was first marketed in China in 2008. VenturePharm (Hainan)\'s generic bupropion tablets received SFDA approval in 2005 as an adjunctive therapy for smoking.
