Using the biomarkers identified in their review, ABF has launched a clinical study of different nicotine user groups. The trial assesses six groups: those who use combustible cigarettes, heat-not-burn products, e-cigarettes/vapes, oral tobacco, and oral nicotine, as well as never users. The final report on this study, expected in the first quarter of 2021, will summarize validated biomarkers that can differentiate user groups and specify the levels of exposure within each group.
