22nd Century Group Inc. (NYSE:XXII) showing dropped/jumped of 0.950% and closed at $2.15, after gaining total volume of 331,828.00 shares. Its earnings per share (EPS) is -$0.15 and its beta value stands at 3.06 points and has total market capitalization of $82.61 million and a total of 90.70 million outstanding shares.

22nd Century Group Inc. (XXII) on February 28, 2017announced that the Company has received written feedback from the Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the Company’s “BRAND A” Modified Risk Tobacco Product (MRTP) application. 22nd Century received feedback from the FDA in conjunction with the Company’s withdrawal of its MRTP application in order to file an even more expansive and robust MRTP application that will include additional scientific data and information from already completed clinical studies on the Company’s Very Low Nicotine (VLN) tobacco cigarettes.

The MRTP application for BRAND A requests that CTP allow 22nd Century to be able to state as truthful and accurate in BRAND A packaging and advertising that the Company’s proprietary VLN cigarettes reduce smokers’ exposure to nicotine because the Company’s proprietary VLN tobacco contains 95% less nicotine than the tobacco contained in conventional tobacco cigarettes. The Company’s keystone technology is its ability to grow proprietary VLN tobacco that contains up to 95% less nicotine than conventional tobacco plants.

In response to the CTP’s clarifying guidance, the Company intends to bifurcate its combined MRTP application into a separate Premarket Tobacco Product (PMT) application and a separate MRTP application for BRAND A to enjoy the benefit of the CTP/FDA’s shorter review period for PMT applications as compared to MRTP applications. In response to the FDA’s request, 22nd Century’s revised MRTP application will also include additional scientific data and information from already completed clinical studies on the Company’s VLN tobacco cigarettes. The Company anticipates filing its more expansive and robust PMT application and MRTP application later this year.

“We are encouraged by CTP/FDA’s feedback on our MRTP application and we look forward to working cooperatively with the FDA to obtain the Agency’s approval to market BRAND A as an over-the-counter, modified risk tobacco product that significantly reduces smokers’ exposure to nicotine,” explained Henry Sicignano, III, President and CEO of 22nd Century Group.
