New study provides preliminary data showing no significant aerosol toxicity in JUUL’s Menthol, Mint and Cucumber 5% nicotine-e-liquid filled pods

JUUL Labs, Inc. today announced results from a preliminary study on the cytotoxicity of aerosol generated from JUUL’s Menthol, Mint and Cucumber 5% nicotine-e-liquid filled pods. The findings, “Neutral Red Uptake (NRU) Cytotoxicity Analysis of Aerosol Generated from a Temperature-Regulated Nicotine-Salt Based Ends Product,” were presented at a poster session at the 72nd Tobacco Science Research Conference in Memphis, TN.

In accordance with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) guidelines, an independent contract laboratory, Enthalpy Analytical, measured and compared the toxicity to living cells of aerosol generated from JUUL’s Menthol, Mint and Cucumber 5% nicotine-e-liquid filled pods with that of tobacco cigarettes. The study demonstrated no significant aerosol toxicity at any of the observed concentrations for JUUL’s Menthol, Mint and Cucumber pods compared to a cigarette control.

“We are encouraged by the results of this study, in which tested aerosols generated from JUUL were not cytotoxic to living cells,” said Dr. Manoj Misra, study author and head of Toxicology at JUUL Labs. “These findings add to the growing body of evidence regarding use of JUUL as an alternative to combustible cigarettes, and we are committed to future rigorous, independent and peer-reviewed clinical trials and behavioral studies.”

Authors of the study include Dr. Manoj Misra of JUUL Labs and Drs. I. Gene Gillman and Pooja Desai of Enthalpy Analytical.
