PMI releases its latest Scientific Update on Smoke-Free Products, a regular publication on its research efforts to develop and assess a range of potentially reduced-risk alternatives to cigarettes.

A downloadable PDF version of this update can be found by clicking on this link.

This issue of the Scientific Update reviews key milestones from this fall, featuring the results of our latest completed clinical trial - the Exposure Response Study on Platform 1.

Read this issue to learn how this study lends further support to the conclusion that switching completely to Platform 1 presents less risk of harm than continuing to smoke.

This issue also reviews the latest technological updates to two of our product platforms, and highlights some exciting new results on Platform 2, our second heated tobacco product still in development. Following in the footsteps of the previous issue, we've introduced a new section that reviews independent research from around the world on Platform 1 and the wider category of products that do not burn tobacco. 

An important factor of this update is to complement our ongoing efforts to share our latest science. We encourage those who are interested in learning more to explore this website, and follow us on social media platforms @pmiscience.
