Physicians Committee director of regulatory testing Kristie Sullivan, M.P.H., co-authored a new research paper on tobacco product toxicology studies in the peer-reviewed journal Alternatives to Laboratory Animals. Drawing on more than 50 recent toxicology studies, the article demonstrates the superiority of widely available modern, nonanimal models over inaccurate animal tests for measuring the toxicity of tobacco products.
