FDA Advances On Two Fronts In The War On Tobacco

April 2, 2011   In combating the tobacco epidemic, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has released two separate draft guidance documents designed to help implement provisions of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. In one case, the FDA wants to provide consumers with previously unknown information about harmful and potentially harmful constituents in tobacco products. HPHCs are chemicals in tobacco products that either cause or could cause harm to smokers or nonsmokers. In the other case, the FDA wants to prevent misleading marketing of modified-risk tobacco products. MRTPs are tobacco products that are distributed, marketed, or sold with claims that they cut either the harm or the risk of tobacco-related disease.
