Filter Ventilated Cigarette Substitution in the ETM

Study Description

COMET Study 1: Filter Ventilated Cigarette Substitution in the ETM

Early attempts by the tobacco industry to develop "safer" cigarettes led to the widespread introduction of ventilation holes in cigarette filters; however, this design feature may instead increase smoking-related harm and make cigarettes more palatable. The overall goal of this project is to model regulatory restrictions banning cigarette filter ventilation and determine their effects on consumption of both cigarettes and a wide range of alternative tobacco products. Testing potential regulatory actions under controlled conditions will facilitate evidence-based policies that have a net benefit to health.
