Summarizes findings of RJR paper examining the effect of smoking regime (FTC conditions versus 50ml puffs/2s/30s)on relative tar yield ranking of Eclipse versus conventional cigarettes. Reports that Eclipse's FTC tar category moves from Ultra Light Tar (ULT) to Low Tar (LT) when employing alternative regime, while conventional cigarettes maintain rank. States that shift is likely due to "increased heat generation from carbon pellet. . .which volatalises a disproportionately larger quantity to tobacco/glycerine." Notes that Eclipse smoke composition was unaffected by smoking regime as was spectrophotometric UV tar. Reports lower B(a)P, acetaldehyde, acrolein and TSNA yields for Eclipse than conventional cigarettes.
