Description:

The purpose of this Program Announcement (PA) is to stimulate
multidisciplinary research on potential reduced-exposure tobacco products,
both smoked and smokeless, through the interplay of basic, biological, and
behavioral research, surveillance, and epidemiology. The tobacco industry is
currently promoting some new products with claims that they are less harmful
or less addictive because these products purportedly deliver lower amounts of
toxic, carcinogenic, and/or addictive agents to the user compared with
conventional products. However, to date, the scientific evidence is
insufficient to evaluate whether these new products actually reduce the
users exposure or risk for tobacco-related diseases. The key research
question of this PA is, Do potential reduced-exposure tobacco products
provide a truly, less-harmful alternative to conventional tobacco products,
both on the individual and population level?
