On a Mission
To Bring Safer Alternatives to Smokers
Parallax Development is a life sciences development company focused entirely on developing an innovative, multi-patented platform for delivering nicotine to smokers – and only smokers – in the safest ways possible.
Nicotine can be the solution
Our target is the addicted smoker who is trapped in a cycle of self-destruction. We believe harm reduction will save millions of lives that would otherwise be lost to smoking-related disease. Nicotine is not the problem. Smoking is. In fact, nicotine can be the solution.
It’s time to start
Fighting fire without fire
While smoking prevalence is declining, globally, more than 7 million people will still die this year from smoking – and 1 billion this century. That’s not acceptable.
Our product – which is still in development, but for which we have achieved significant proof of concept – leverages the most advanced technologies in pulmonary medicine. We will deliver nicotine via inhalation that is free of all combustion, ash and smell. It will never have any characteristics or flavours that are designed to appeal to kids or non-smokers.
Founded by Physicians
Who put people first
Our mission: To end the scourge of cigarette smoking with a safe and pure product. For those who can’t quit, we seek to replace every cigarette with a safer alternative, one that delivers an equivalent nicotine effect, but leaves no lasting scars.
Recently we entered into a strategic collaboration with Philip Morris International (PMI) to accelerate our mission. PMI has publicly committed themselves – and billions of dollars – to assure a smoke-free future. With their resources, we can develop our product faster than any other path. This is a race to save lives.
