Comparative evaluation of the mutagenicity and genotoxicity of smoke condensate derived from Korean cigarettes

OBJECTIVES Cigarette smoking is associated with carcinogenesis owing to the mutagenic and genotoxic effects of cigarette smoke. The aim of this study was to evaluate the mutagenic and genotoxic effects of Korean cigarettes using in vitro assays. METHODS We selected 2 types of cigarettes (TL and TW) as benchmark Korean cigarettes for this study, because… (More)
