The comparative acute toxicity of a branded American cigarette and kreteks (Indonesian cigarettes containing approximately 60% tobacco and 40% ground clove buds) was assessed by exposure of groups of ten male and ten female rats to three different but equivalent (in terms of total particulate matter) concentrations of smoke from each type of cigarette. The smoke was delivered “nose only” using an HRC Rodent Smoking Machine (Mark IV) within a single 1-h period, with a total delivery of 30 min… 
Comparison of the inhalation toxicity of kretek (clove cigarette) smoke with that of American cigarette smoke. II. Fourteen days, exposure
TLDR
The histopathological lesions seen in the lungs were typical of the lesions encountered in inhalation studies with tobacco smoke and included increased numbers, vacuolation and brown pigmentation of macrophages, acute alveolitis, bronchiolar epithelial hyperplasia and cuboidal ciliated cell metaplasia of alveolar duct.
Toxicological assessment of kretek cigarettes Part 3: kretek and American-blended cigarettes, inhalation toxicity.
TLDR
Compared to 2R4F cigarette, kretek smoke exposure was associated with a pronounced attenuation of pulmonary inflammation and less severe histopathological changes in the respiratory tract, and neutrophilic inflammation was also significantly lower.

The common tobacco plants of commerce had apparently been used for millenia by the peoples of the Western hemisphere before contact with Europeans began in 1492. The plants were cultivated by native
Tobacco cessation in primary care: maximizing intervention strategies.
TLDR
With this framework and the modifications that may be required for specific categories of patients, practicing clinicians can incorporate into daily practice a successful tobacco cessation intervention program with quit rates approaching 20%.

Action of intensive cigarette smoke inhalations on the rat lung. Role of particulate and gaseous cofactors.
TLDR
The action of high doses of cigarette smoke alone or combined with coal dust or acrolein or both resulted in effects peculiar to the action of dust: alveolitis of the macrophage type, fibrosis of the reticulin type, limited hyperplasia, and ciliated metaplasia.

TLDR
Three toxicology studies in rats two involving kretek smoke compared directly with American cigarette smoke and one determining the effect of a submicron eugenol aerosol in a 4-h inhalation test at three concentrations are completed and submitted for publication.

TLDR
Laryngeal damage may provide a short-term bio-assay for the inhalation toxicity of cigarette smoke and may parallel the extent of subsequent hyperplasia and metaplasia.
Airborne chemical irritants. Role of the trigeminal nerve.
TLDR
Electrical reccrding from the sensory trigeminal nerves provided direct evidence that relates chemical irritation of the nasal mucosa to afferent impulses on the trigeminals narve, resulting in inhibition of respiratory rate.
