Toxicological Assessment

      Regulatory Toxicology

      Regulatory Toxicology focuses on assessing the toxicity of our products on cells grown in the laboratory and in laboratory animals.

      The main purpose of Regulatory Toxicology is to provide data for regulatory agencies on whether our products meet their defined acceptability criteria. These criteria include requirements for manufacturing and clinical tests. In the case of smoke-free tobacco products, the aim is to demonstrate that the toxicity of the aerosol from smoke free products is lower than that of cigarettes.

      Regulatory Toxicology assessment is performed under Good Laboratory Practice (GLP). GLP ensures uniformity, consistency, reliability, reproducibility, quality and integrity in the methodology of the tests and hence the results.
