Evaluation Process for Potential Reduced-Risk Tobacco Products..

January 9, 2008 - A team of scientists and physicians affiliated with the Life Sciences Research Office (LSRO) in Maryland, USA, has reviewed and identified preclinical and clinical methods that can be used to examine the biological effects of potential reduced-risk tobacco products. Their findings, conclusions and recommendations are presented in the most recent LSRO report, titled Biological Effects Assessment in the Evaluation of Potential Reduced-Risk Tobacco Products. The report was produced under a contract between Philip Morris USA and the LSRO, but the findings, conclusions and recommendations were developed independently of Philip Morris and represent the views of the LSRO alone. Tobacco is deadly in any form or disguise.. (theme of the World Health Organization, WHO, World No Tobacco Day)
