A Statement from GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare on FDA Regulation of Smokeless Tobacco Products
Date:9/27/2010

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Consumer Healthcare, a leader in helping smokers quit and the marketer of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products, including Nicorette® and NicoDerm® CQ®, supports the findings of the American Heart Association (AHA) policy statement regarding smokeless tobacco products.(1) GSK Consumer Healthcare agrees that these products should not be used as an alternative to cigarettes or for smoking cessation due to the potential negative health consequences and their impact on smoking behavior. 

The AHA statement is important because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just finished accepting comments from the public on how FDA should regulate certain smokeless tobacco products.  GSK Consumer Healthcare submitted a comment to the FDA on the potential public health impact of oral dissolvable tobacco products.  In our submission, GSK Consumer Healthcare called for oral dissolvable tobacco products to be withdrawn from the market until their sponsors can demonstrate to FDA that their marketing is appropriate for the protection of public health.

The AHA policy statement, notes that smokeless tobacco products are not safe alternatives to smoking and are associated with heart attack, stroke and certain cancers.(1)  Also, due to the marketing of these products, smokeless tobacco products may also initiate further tobacco use and perpetuate smoking.(1) 

Tobacco use, including smokeless tobacco, is the largest cause of preventable death and disease in the world.(2)  More than 400,000 Americans die every year from tobacco-related disease.(2)  The only proven way to reduce these health consequences is to stop using tobacco complete
