News about vaping and e-liquids

The FDA was asked a simple question and this is how they responded…

26th July 2016

Dr. Michael Siegel shared this on the Tobaccoanalysis blog spot. Here is the question, “Are e-cigs that do not contain nicotine (or any other tobacco extracts) also covered by the FDA deeming regulations? If so, will they also require pre-market approval like products that do not contain nicotine?” Pretty simple question don’t you think? It should have been answered with a simple “yes” or “no”. As Dr. Siegel points out, “if e-cigarettes do not contain nicotine then there is no basis for the FDA to assert jurisdiction over them as tobacco products. Therefore, these nicotine-free e-liquids would not be subject to the…

21st July 2016

Cutting through the regulatory noise…. China probably has more to lose in a financial sense when it comes to these FDA regulations than the USA, as China is the power house of e cigarette manufacturing. The Chinese were pretty silent during the regulatory fight in Europe, so, what exactly are they doing to help the Industry here in the USA, if anything at all? The threat to the Industry as we have been pointing out in the last two posts is huge. Currently there are a couple of Bills going through the legislature and there are several court cases against the FDA.…

That Predicate date!

14th July 2016

The Grandfather date, also known as the ‘predicate date’ for e-cigarettes is 15th February 2007. What this means is that any e-cigarette that was commercially marketed up till then can continue to be legally sold, without going through the Premarket Tobacco Application process.  If a manufacturer can show substantial equivalence (SE), i.e. demonstrating that the product is exactly the same now, as it was then,  it can continue to be marketed, unless the FDA decide otherwise. If the vaping product doesn’t match the SE criteria, then, as stated, it must now go through the Premarket Tobacco Application process, or PMTA, as it…

New clinical study shows exclusive e-cigarette use reduces exposure to harmful chemicals similar to complete smoking cessation

12th July 2016

We are reporting this in its entirety with thanks to Fontem Ventures. New peer-reviewed research just published shows that smokers who completely substitute conventional cigarettes with commercial e-cigarettes experience dramatic reductions in exposure to harmful chemicals that are thought to contribute to tobacco-related diseases, not that dissimilar to complete smoking cessation. The clinical findings, reported in the Journal of Toxicology Mechanisms and Methods, measured the changes in fifteen biomarkers of exposure to harmful and potentially harmful constituents (HPHCs) - reported by FDA to be significant contributors to smoking-associated disease risks, including carbon monoxide, aldehydes, and tobacco-specific nitrosamines - in the urine,…

Leading Dr’s say vaping should be banned in bars and restaurants

23rd June 2016

The apparent risk of passive vaping is enough that Dr Iain Kennedy, a consultant in public health from Glasgow has called for a ban in public places such as bars and restaurants. He said, “There are new potential risks, and we don’t yet know the level of those risks. It is a precautionary principle – until we do the studies and have a better idea of what the risks may or may not be, we should restrict their use in public places” He went on to state that although electronic cigarettes were undoubtedly safer than cigarettes there is no evidence that they…
