Since 2014 when we first launched our Tobacco Heating System (THS), we’ve continued to publish the results of our assessment of this and other smoke-free products in our growing portfolio. Independent research has also dramatically increased over that time frame.
Starting with less than 20 independent papers published by the end of 2017, we are now seeing more than 100 research papers published per year that contain original data, analysis, methodology, case reports, and reviews on the heated tobacco products (HTPs). And that doesn’t include many commentaries and opinion pieces that are also published.
To date, we’ve counted more than 600 independent publications on the HTP category meeting these criteria. Many of these are focused on THS.
