The Importance of Science-Based Decision-Making Highlighted in Latest Issue of Philip Morris International's Scientific Update

10:48 am ET July 23, 2020 (BusinessWire) Print

--- As the market for heated tobacco products expands, the availability of accurate and non-misleading information about these products is vital.

Philip Morris International Inc. (PMI) (NYSE: PM) has published the 10th issue of its Scientific Update, a regularly issued report on the company's efforts to develop and scientifically assess a range of smoke-free alternatives to cigarettes.

PMI's latest Scientific Update focuses on scientific evidence and the importance of relying on science to make decisions in a world too often clouded by personal and professional biases. It is guest-edited by Dr. Moira Gilchrist, Vice President Strategic & Scientific Communications at PMI.

"Humans can be terrible decision-makers, especially in the heat of the moment and when tensions are high," Dr. Gilchrist explains. "Scientists in this field--whether working directly for tobacco companies or receiving funding from other sources--have a responsibility to take all necessary precautions to ensure our work is unbiased and accurate. This latest Scientific Update explains the research methodology PMI employs, which is aligned with that used by the pharmaceutical industry, and encourages all others working in this field to adhere to equally high standards."

This issue also explores the latest research on smoke-free products published by PMI and independent analysts. It includes a review of 13 population health impact models, produced by PMI scientists in collaboration with leaders in tobacco harm reduction research. These models estimate how the health of a population could be affected by the presence or absence of smoke-free products in the market. The study--published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research--summarizes the strengths and weaknesses of the two approaches and demonstrates how future models can benefit from the inclusion of well-designed epidemiological study data. These findings will help to inform authorities as they consider various approaches to tobacco harm reduction.

Dr. Gizelle Baker, Director Global Scientific Engagement at PMI, answers common questions about heated tobacco products, explaining what they are and how they differ from cigarettes and e-vapor products and addressing common misconceptions about them. She describes several independent studies on unintended use recently reviewed on PMIScience.com, noting, "Generally, the data show that the population most likely to use electrically heated tobacco systems, are current smokers, with low uptake by youth and nonsmokers and a slightly higher but still low likelihood of uptake by former smokers."

The recent decision by U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to authorize the marketing of PMI's IQOS Tobacco Heating System as a Modified Risk Tobacco Product with reduced exposure information was a function of the U.S. law and also an example of a science-based approach to harm reduction. In the next issue, this topic will be explored in more detail.
