Research Initiative Details

The FSPTCA gave the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the authority to regulate tobacco-product advertising, labeling, marketing, constituents, ingredients and additives in the United States. These regulatory changes are expected to influence tobacco-product risk perceptions, use patterns, and exposures, and to reduce tobacco-related morbidity and mortality over time. The study initially will focus on designing the sample, establishing the cohort, collecting data on a yearly basis, developing a database, arranging a central specimen repository, and measuring and reporting on the near-term behavioral and health effects of the regulatory changes. NIDA anticipates that over time, the study will involve continued cohort monitoring, additional recruitment of young adults to the cohort at each wave, cross-sectional analyses within age groups and longitudinal data analysis, including analysis of distal outcomes, and small area estimation modeling. Results from this study are expected to inform the development, implementation, and evaluation of tobacco-product regulations in the United States (For detailed information on FSPTCA, see http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=111_cong_public_laws&docid=f:publ031.111.pdf).
