Vaporizer risk similar to gum

January 6, 2016

A study conducted by scientists at the Netherlands-based Fontem Ventures (Imperial Tobacco Group) used a “prototype vaping product” with 2 percent nicotine concentration—the maximum limit set by the EU Tobacco Products Directive—and found that it was “well tolerated” in smokers.

According to the researchers, the product had a similar short-term safety profile to Nicorette, a nicotine gum, and has the potential for use as an aid for smoking reduction or cessation.

The study was published in the Journal of Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology.
