Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration [ Time Frame: within the last dosing interval (starting at 10.5-11 hours after first product administration) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration (Cmax), which is the maximum (peak) concentration (amount of drug) measurable in blood plasma within the last dosing interval, measured in nanograms/milliliter (ng/mL)

  • Average Concentration [ Time Frame: within the last dosing interval (starting at 10.5-11 hours after first product administration) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Average Nicotine Plasma Concentration (Cav) within the last dosing interval

  • Area Under the Curve [ Time Frame: within the last dosing interval (starting at 10.5-11 hours after first product administration) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Area under the nicotine plasma concentration-vs.-time curve during the last dosing interval (AUCt)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time of Maximum Concentration [ Time Frame: During 12 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The time at which maximum concentration is reached (Tmax)

  • Minimum Observed Concentration [ Time Frame: within the last dosing interval (starting at 10.5-11 hours after first product administration) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Minimum Observed Plasma Concentration (Cmin), which is the minimum concentration (amount of drug) measurable in blood plasma within the last dosing interval, measured in nanograms/milliliter (ng/mL)

  • Peak-Trough Fluctuation [ Time Frame: within the last dosing interval (starting at 10.5-11 hours after first product administration) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent of Peak-Trough Fluctuation in one dosing interval at steady state (PTF)

  • Swing [ Time Frame: within the last dosing interval (starting at 10.5-11 hours after first product administration) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Swing in one dosing interval at steady state, calculated as (Cmax-Cmin)/ Cmin

  • Nicotine Released [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The amount of nicotine released from the product during product administration

Detailed Description:

Fifty (50) healthy male or female subjects between the ages of 19 and 50 years, inclusive, smoking at least 20 cigarettes daily during at least one year preceding inclusion. Multiple doses of all study treatments are given either every 60 minutes or every 90 minutes, respectively. All products will be administered in accordance with labeling, on five separate treatment visits. The subjects will abstain from smoking from 8 pm in the evening before and until the end of each visit.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   19 Years to 50 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • BMI between 17.5 and 30.0 kg/m2 and a total body weight of at least 55.0 kg.
  • Female participants of child-bearing potential are required to use a medically acceptable means of birth control.
  • A personally signed and dated informed consent document, indicating that the subject has been informed of all pertinent aspects of the study.
  • Willing and able to comply with all scheduled visits and study procedures

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pregnancy, lactation or intended pregnancy.
  • Treatment with an investigational product or donation or loss of blood within 3 month preceding the first dose of study medication.
  • Any medical condition or history that might, per protocol or in the opinion of the investigator, compromise subject safety or trial results.
