    Association mapping in a collection of tobacco reference cultivars. Step One: Variability of smoke constituents

    JULIO E.; VERRON T.; CAHOURS X.; DORLHAC DE BORNE F.; COLARD S.
    Imperial Tobacco Group, Bergerac, France
    Recent developments of sequencing technologies and computational methods have given the opportunity to detect natural variation underlying complex traits in crops. In this purpose, association mapping can be used to identify the link between tobacco genes ...

    Assessment of the so-called “gateway effect” based on electronic vapour product classifications

    VERRON T.(1); CAHOURS X.(1); CERSON L.(2); COLARD S.(1); O’CONNELL G.(3)
    (1) SEITA-Imperial Tobacco, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France; (2) Imperial Tobacco Limited, Bristol, U.K.; (3) Fontem Ventures B.V., Amsterdam, Netherlands
    Since electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) became popular as alternatives to conventional cigarettes, with subsequent market growth amongst smokers, there is currently a debate as to whether e-cigs may be a "gateway" to conventional cigarette smoking ...

    Assessment of tar and nicotine yields obtained under natural conditions by smokers. Comparison of several groups of usual smokers

    MARCHAND V.; DELARUE B.; TESSIER C.; CHABRILLAT N.; FRETEY D.; CAHOURS X.; DUMÉRY B.
    Altadis - Imperial Tobacco Group, Research Center, Fleury les Aubrais, France
    We previously published results indicating that under natural conditions, smokers of superlight cigarettes produced on average less tar and nicotine than smokers of full flavour cigarettes, even if the ratio between the two groups was lower than predicted ...

    Effects of middle-term switching from a full flavour to a light flavour brand on the smoking behaviour and on smoker's biomarkers of exposure

    DELARUE B.; TESSIER C.; CHABRILLAT N.; FRETEY D.; CAHOURS X.; DUMÉRY B.; MARCHAND V.
    Altadis - Imperial Tobacco Group, Research Center, Fleury les Aubrais, France
    Because the field of knowledge concerning the benefit for health to smoke lighter cigarettes is not very large, we wanted to look at the changes that may occur in the smoker behaviour after switching to lighter cigarettes, and to follow this behaviour and ...

    Determining the nicotine and cotinine in saliva using automated column-switching high-performance liquid chromatography

    CAHOURS X.; CHABRILLAT N.; DUBOIS M.; DUMÉRY B.; MARCHAND V.
    Altadis - Imperial Tobacco Group, Research Center, Fleury les Aubrais, France
    The determination, of nicotine and its metabolite, cotinine, in saliva, is very often used to estimate active smoking behavior. However, the proposed methods are often expensive, time consuming and work intensive. Indeed, in the case of biofluids such as ...
