Smoke-free legislation reduced second-hand smoke (SHS) exposure in public places, and indirectly promoted private smoke-free settings. Nevertheless, a large proportion of adults is still exposed to SHS at home. The aim of this paper is to quantify the burden of disease due to home SHS exposure among adults in the 28-European Union (EU) countries for year 2017. The burdens by gender from lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), breast cancer, ischemic heart disease (IHD… Expand
Caregiver Burdens Associated With Treatment-Resistant Schizophrenia: A Quantitative Caregiver Survey of Experiences, Attitudes, and Perceptions
Caring for a person living with TRS places considerable burden on caregivers’ lives, with the severity of the disease (and especially severity of positive symptoms) driving further burden, as highlighted by a number of quantitative differences between the TRS and comparator groups. Expand
Pharmacogenetics‐Guided Advances in Antipsychotic Treatment
A meta-review of key PGx findings related to antipsychotics response and common adverse effects, including antipsychotic-induced weight gain, tardive dyskinesia (TD) and clozapine-induced agranulocytosis (CIAG), and highlights advances and challenges in clinical implementation is presented. Expand
The Role of Inflammation in the Treatment of Schizophrenia
A narrative review the recent findings in the field of inflammation in schizophrenia and their application in daily practice was synthetized to provide a more efficient anti-inflammatory therapeutic approach that targets specific pathways associated with the pathology of schizophrenia. Expand


Secondhand smoke exposure predicted COPD and other tobacco-related mortality in a 17-year cohort study in China.
This study shows dose-response relationships between SHS and major tobacco-related mortality and provides new evidence to support causation for COPD and ischemic stroke. Expand
Burden of disease from breast cancer attributable to smoking and second‐hand smoke exposure in Europe
The results represent the first estimates of breast cancer burden in women attributable to smoking and SHS exposure for the EU‐28 and are important to increase awareness among women, health professionals and wider society of the association between smoking,SHS exposure and breast cancer. Expand
Worldwide burden of disease from exposure to second-hand smoke: a retrospective analysis of data from 192 countries
Estimates of worldwide burden of disease attributable to second-hand smoke suggest that substantial health gains could be made by extending effective public health and clinical interventions to reduce passive smoking worldwide. Expand
Burden of disease from exposure to secondhand smoke in children in Europe
In 2017, the number of deaths and disability-adjusted life years in children attributable to exposure to secondhand smoke in the European Union countries were, respectively, 335 and 35,633. Expand
Burden of disease attributable to second-hand smoke exposure: A systematic review.
The research gap on the SHS exposure burden is shrinking, however, estimates are not yet available for a number of countries, particularly the Middle Eastern and African countries, and not all diseases with the strongest evidence of causation, such as sudden infant death syndrome, have been explored.

Meta-analysis of the association between second-hand smoke exposure and ischaemic heart diseases, COPD and stroke
This is the first study to calculate effect sizes for the association between second-hand smoke exposure and the disease outcomes IHD, COPD, and stroke at once, and indicates the high relevance of public health campaigns and legislation to protect non-smokers from the adverse health effects attributable to SHS exposure.

Passive smoking exposure: a risk factor for chronic bronchitis and asthma in adults?
The control of passive smoke exposure in the workplace might reduce the risk of respiratory symptoms independently of exposure to other airborne contaminants. Expand
