The comparative repeat dose toxicity of American cigarettes and kreteks (Indonesian cigarettes containing approximately 60% tobacco and 40% shredded clove buds) was assessed by exposure of groups of five male and five female rats to equivalent (approximately 2 mg/l in terms of total particulate matter) concentrations of smoke from each type of cigarette over 15 consecutive days. The smoke was delivered “nose only” using an HRC Rodent Smoking Machine (Mark IV). For each type of cigarette, three… 
Toxicological assessment of kretek cigarettes. Part 7: the impact of ingredients added to kretek cigarettes on inhalation toxicity.
TLDR
It can be concluded that the addition of ingredients commonly used in the manufacture of kretek cigarettes did not change the overall in vivo toxicity profile of the mainstream smoke.
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.
[An inhalation chamber model for controlled studies of tobacco smoke toxicity in rodents].
TLDR
The presented inhalation chamber system is able to maintain a controlled CO concentration in a model in which small animals are exposed to the inhalation of cigarette smoke, permitting well-controlled studies, as well as investigations involving other toxic gases and air pollutants.
An inhalation chamber model for controlled studies of tobacco smoke toxicity in rodents
TLDR
It is concluded that the presented inhalation chamber system is able to maintain a controlled CO concentration in a model in which small animals are exposed to the inhalation of cigarette smoke, permitting well-controlled studies, as well as investigations involving other toxic gases and air pollutants.
Toxicological assessment of kretek cigarettes: Part 1: background, assessment approach, and summary of findings.
TLDR
The smoke from kretek cigarettes gives rise to the typical cigarette smoke-related effects known from American-blended cigarettes, does not reveal any novel toxicity, and exhibits an unexpected distinct attenuation of pulmonary inflammation.
A new exposure model to evaluate smoked illicit drugs in rodents: A study of crack cocaine.
TLDR
The developed model effectively exposed animals to crack cocaine, and this model may be useful for the investigation of other inhalational abused drugs.
Prevalence of alternative forms of tobacco use in a population of young adult military recruits.
TLDR
With the exception of kreteks, which did not differ by gender, the prevalence of use of alternative tobacco products was greater for males than for females (p<.001).
Per- and polyfluorinated substances (PFASs): Environmental challenges
Abstract Long-chain perfluoroalkylated acids are persistent in the environment, leading to ubiquitous exposure of biota. They have been listed as very persistent, very bioaccumulative and toxic by
The relevance and prospects of advancing tobacco control in Indonesia.
TLDR
This paper analyzes tobacco control in Indonesia and examines the relevance and prospects of advancing in Indonesia four cost-effective tobacco control strategies: price and tax measures, advertising bans, clean air legislation, and public education.
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%.

Comparison of the inhalation toxicity of kretek (clove cigarette) smoke with that of American cigarette smoke. I. One day exposure
TLDR
No qualitative histopathological differences were detected between the different types of cigarette either at 24h or 14 days after exposure, however, a slight increase in the incidence and severity of focal alveolar haemorrhage was present in the high dose American group at 24 h compared with the high doses kretek group killed at the same time interval.
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
All three groups, exposed to high, medium and low levels of eugenol, lost weight overnight following exposure, and there was rapid recovery, with food and water consumption data comparable with control values throughout most of the remainder of the 14-day observation period.

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.
Toxicity studies on clove cigarette smoke and constituents of clove: determination of the LD50 of eugenol by intratracheal instillation in rats and hamsters
TLDR
Congestion of the lung with interstitial hemorrhages, acute emphysema, and acute pulmonary edema were among the macroscopic and histologic findings observed in the animals after intratracheal administration of eugenol.

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.
Effect of cigarette smoking on lipids, lipoproteins, blood coagulation, fibrinolysis and cellular components of human blood.
TLDR
No significant changes were found in the group of light smokers but a trend was usually seen that suggested that these changes were influenced by the number of cigarettes smoked.
Effects on experimental animals of long-term inhalation exposure to carbon monoxide.
TLDR
The carboxyhemoglobin (COHb) values at equilibrium were determined for the 4 species exposed continuously for 48 hr at the 3 concentrations and correlated well with the affinity constants for the different species, and agreed closely with the theoretical calculated values.
Chronic carbon monoxide exposure: time course of hemoglobin, heart weight and lactate dehydrogenase isozyme changes.
TLDR
Rats exposed to 500 ppm CO in air over periods of up to 42 days were exposed to Hemoglobin (Hb) concentration increased to over 70% above control values during the period of exposure, and the mass of the heart increased, and within 14 days it reached a weight over one-third greater than that predicted from control animals of equal body weight.
The effects of age, sex, and smoking on erythrocytes and leukocytes.
TLDR
The data indicate that the normal standards for blood cell counts should be adjusted for age, sex, and smoking habits.
