The consistent application of evidence based strategies, from adbans to tax increases, was, it seemed, driving an inevitable progression towards a smoke-free world; the only question was ‘when would the prevalence line cross the X axis?’

    Tobacco harm reduction (THR) has been a carefully modulated dimension of this debate. Now this balance has been unsettled by the sudden arrival onto the market of a wide range of e-cigarettes and other Nicotine Containing Products (NCPs). The development suggests both opportunities (such as greatly reduced harm for the heavily addicted) and threats (like the potential rehabilitation of the tobacco industry), and in the process throws up multiple research questions. This THR Research Agenda commissioned by Cancer Research UK presents a first attempt to map these questions. It was informed by a review of the academic and grey literature and consultations with twelve TC experts.
