San Francisco (June 22, 2020) -- As part of the Company's ongoing engagement with the public health community, Juul Labs today announced findings from its sciences and research program at the 82nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the College on Problems of Drug Dependence. The studies presented evaluate the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profile of the JUUL System compared to other nicotine delivery products.
Consistent with previous clinical studies conducted by Juul Labs, the data demonstrated a nicotine absorption curve for the JUUL System that is competitive with a combustible cigarette but with a lower maximum blood nicotine concentration and total nicotine exposure compared to combustible cigarettes. The JUUL System's nicotine absorption curve was in close range of select comparator ENDS and a heated tobacco product.
Below are the Juul-sponsored studies that were shared at the conference:
- Pharmacokinetics and Subjective Effects of the JL Electronic Nicotine Delivery System (ENDS) Compared to Five ENDS, a Heated Tobacco Product, and a Combustible Cigarette.
- Abuse Liability Assessment of JL Electronic Nicotine Delivery System (ENDS) in Two Nicotine Concentrations Compared to Usual Brand Cigarette, Nicotine Gum and a Comparator ENDS
"When considering laws and regulations governing nicotine, policymakers should bear in mind: Providing a similar nicotine effect and experience to combustible cigarettes is critical to facilitate an adult smoker's transition away from smoking," said Mark Rubinstein, Vice President of Global Scientific Affairs at Juul Labs.
The Company will continue to share results from its science and research program with the public health communities as it works to support the scientific basis for the category, as well as future regulatory filings.
About Juul Labs
JUUL Labs' mission is to transition the world's billion adult smokers away from combustible cigarettes, eliminate their use, and combat underage usage of our products. We believe that vapor products can offer adult smokers an alternative to combustible cigarettes and, in so doing, reduce the harm associated with tobacco. Nicotine is addictive and can cause certain harms to health. It would be best if no one used any nicotine product. Anyone who smokes should quit. Adult smokers who have not successfully quit should completely switch to potentially less harmful alternative nicotine products. JUUL Labs does not want any non-nicotine users, especially those underage, to try our products, as they exist only to transition adult smokers away from combustible cigarettes.
