Great River, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/25/2013 -- It was previously announced that VCU received a grant to conduct research on tobacco novelty products which include electronic cigarettes. This is good news for the industry so there will be evidence to support they are a safer product.
FDA Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D. stated, “For the first time, under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, the federal government, through the FDA Center for Tobacco Products, is able to bring science-based regulation to the manufacturing, marketing and distribution of tobacco products. The FDA is committed to a science-based approach that addresses the complex public health issues raised by tobacco product regulation.”
Thomas Eissenberg, Ph.D., professor of psychology and director of VCU’s Clinical Behavioral Pharmacology Laboratory said, “While the focus of the Center for the Study of Tobacco Products is on novel tobacco products generally, this grant will also allow us to provide a wealth of information regarding electronic cigarettes and is designed to have the flexibility and capacity to begin new research to address issues raised in today’s rapidly evolving tobacco marketplace.”
VCU informed on their website that the research will involve four components-examination of factors that influence MRTP nicotine and toxicant yield; comparison of short-term effects of MRTP to other products; a randomized control trial; and MRTP use and misuse on user’s attitudes, beliefs and perceived effects.
One of the missions will also be to develop a training program for the new generation of scientist that will study tobacco.
This is a much needed study to help put an end to the debate if e-cigarettes cause harm and prove that this is a safe device to utilize in place of a traditional tobacco cigarette.
