BACKGROUND Cigarette smoking is a risk factor for several diseases, including cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and lung cancer, but the role of specific smoke constituents in these diseases has not been clearly established. METHODS The relationships between biomarkers of potential harm (BOPH), associated with inflammation(More)
BACKGROUND This article describes the data mining analysis of a clinical exposure study of 3585 adult smokers and 1077 nonsmokers. The analysis focused on developing models for four biomarkers of potential harm (BOPH): white blood cell count (WBC), 24 h urine 8-epi-prostaglandin F2alpha (EPI8), 24 h urine 11-dehydro-thromboxane B2 (DEH11), and high-density(More)
Estrogen is a major risk factor for endometrial cancer and it has been well-established that smokers have a significantly reduced risk of endometrial cancer. Localized levels of estrogen within the uterus may determine the estrogenic response. The objective of this research was to investigate effects of cigarette smoke related hydrocarbons (benzo(a)pyrene,(More)
Despite the lack of evidence, many reports exist which have implied that smokers inhale low-yield cigarette smoke more deeply than that of high-yield cigarettes. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of short-term switching between smoker's own brand and test cigarettes with different smoke yields on puffing topography, respiratory(More)
Concerns have been raised in the literature for the potential of secondhand exposure from e-vapor product (EVP) use. It would be difficult to experimentally determine the impact of various factors on secondhand exposure including, but not limited to, room characteristics (indoor space size, ventilation rate), device specifications (aerosol mass delivery,(More)
