“We administered nicotine to achieve a steady-state concentration, using subcutaneously implanted minipumps, a technique that avoids the episodic hypoxic-ischemic episodes that accompany nicotine injections, and that also sidesteps the inherent problems of repeated handling stress and episodic withdrawal between injections” Slotkin et al., Neurotoxicology and Teratology 2002; 24:369-384.
