Manipulating Tobacco Constituents in Female Menthol Smokers


Brief description of study

This study examines the potential effect of reducing nicotine content or menthol or both in women of reproductive age, a vulnerable population identified by the FDA in need of further research.

Detailed Study Description

Study is designed to address the following questions that have been outlined by the FDA as particular areas of interest:

  1. What are the factors, including menthol and other flavorings that influence the appeal of tobacco products to vulnerable populations: What is the impact of these factors on cessation, switching tobacco products and multiple use?
  2. What is the potential impact of modifying nicotine levels on dependence, and smoking rate and cessation, as well as patterns of switching products and use of multiple tobacco products?
  3. Beyond nicotine, what other constituents enhance addictive properties?
