Experimental Tobacco Marketplace in Regulating Flavored Tobacco Products in Menthol Cigarette Smokers

2019-04-04 09:20:40 | BioPortfolio


This trial uses an Experimental Tobacco Marketplace to study the purchase of tobacco products in menthol cigarette smokers. Determining the level of substitutability of both flavored and unflavored/tobacco flavored e-cigarettes when menthol cigarettes are available and unavailable can help determine if a flavor ban (of either menthol cigarettes and/or flavored e-cigarettes) will lead to smoking cessation and/or harm reduction. A greater understanding of tobacco product purchasing could help inform possible regulatory actions by the Food and Drug Administration.


Participants view and purchase hypothetical tobacco products during four distinctly different Experimental Tobacco Marketplace (ETM) conditions. During the session, participants are presented with these randomly ordered conditions: menthol cigarettes and five flavored e-cigarettes (menthol/mint, fruits, sweets, alcohol, snacks/meals), menthol cigarettes and both unflavored and tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes, non-menthol cigarettes and five flavored e-cigarettes, and non-menthol cigarettes and both unflavored and tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes. Participants' visual attention is evaluated by eye-tracking equipment.
