By now, many individuals know that the FDA will be hosting a public hearing on December 17th. The hearing is designed to offer members of the public an opportunity to weigh in on nicotine replacement therapies and smoking-cessation products. It seems the domineering topic will be how the FDA should regulate electronic cigarettes.
This will undoubtedly become a heated discussion. Tempers may flare. Some of electronic cigarettes’ biggest proponents and adversaries will be there to make statements. Good luck to all the pro-e-cig folks. We hope you’re bringing your A-game.
Riccardo Polosa is the man behind the first global electronic cigarette cessation study. He hails from the University of Catania in Italy. He won’t be at the event in person, but we do have the statement he’s sending to the FDA in light of the hearing. Check it out.
Polosa’s study will soon be published and we’ll have full coverage of the results.
