News from BAT Research & Development
British American Tobacco’s Award Winning 2015 Science & Technology Report details significant strides in the science of tobacco harm reduction made by BAT’s R&D department over the last year.
BAT has won the award for the ‘Most Impressive Public Service Initiative’ at the Global Tobacco and Nicotine Forum (GTNF) conference in Brussels.
Scientists at British American Tobacco used lab-based cellular tests to examine the impact of cigarette smoke and Vype e-cigarette vapour on human lung cells.
‘Bespoke’ study designs central to assessment of next-generation products, British American Tobacco scientists tell NAS
Dr Marianna Gaca and Dr James Murphy were both invited to present at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington DC last week, at a committee reviewing the health effects of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS).
Exposure to e-cigarette vapour causes limited impact on gene and protein expression in human lung cells
New research reveals changes in the expression levels of 123 genes when reconstituted lung tissue was exposed to cigarette smoke, compared to only two genes that could be confirmed following exposure to an e-cigarette (Vype ePen) aerosol.
Two new Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs), developed jointly by British American Tobacco (BAT) and Philip Morris International (PMI), are featured in a special issue of Applied In Vitro Toxicology (AIVT) focusing on the in vitro evaluation of next-generation nicotine products.
