Development and utilization of electronic cigarettes (ECs) resulted from the search for healthier alternatives to conventional tobacco cigarettes (TCs) and the search for alternative methods for quitting TCs. This review compares the potential disease burden presented by TC smoke to that of EC vapor. 
Patterns of concurrent cigarette, alcohol, and e‐cigarette use: Off‐setting or additive behaviors?
To understand nationwide concurrent use of e‐cigarettes (Ecig) with alcohol and conventional cigarettes (Ccig), the major risk factors for head and neck cancer.
Are e-cigarettes a gateway to smoking or a pathway to quitting?
TLDR
The contents of e-cigs and how they are used, the history, advantages, disadvantages and then balance the positive and negative aspects of their use are described. Expand
ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE--A WAY OF SMOKING CESSATION?
TLDR
Before the ECs to occupy a place in the standard clinical approaches for the treatment of tobacco addiction longer needed more data about their safety clinical and regulatory of their use. Expand
A Review of Pulmonary Toxicity of Electronic Cigarettes in the Context of Smoking: A Focus on Inflammation
TLDR
Cell culture and experimental animal data indicate that e-cigs have the potential for inducing inflammation, albeit much less than smoking, and a focus on human lung biomarkers is focused on. Expand
Electronic Cigarettes for Curbing the Tobacco-Induced Burden of Noncommunicable Diseases: Evidence Revisited with Emphasis on Challenges in Sub-Saharan Africa
TLDR
On the whole, if e-cigs were to be introduced in SSA, they should be strictly recommended to current and/or ex-smokers as a method to quit smoking or prevent relapse and never-smoker should be strongly encouraged to avoid using these devices. Expand
Cigarette smoke but not electronic cigarette aerosol activates a stress response in human coronary artery endothelial cells in culture
TLDR
Using e-cigarettes instead of cigarettes may reduce immediate cardiovascular harms and human coronary artery endothelial cells show a biological response to cigarette smoke, but this response was not seen following exposure to e-cigarette aerosol. Expand
Drug Vaping: From the Dangers of Misuse to New Therapeutic Devices
TLDR
This review seeks to synthesise the problems of e-cigarette and liquid refill toxicity in order to introduce the dangers of illegal and legal drugs consumed using vaping and vaporisation for recreational purposes, and finally, to present the potential therapeutic benefits of vaping as a new administration route for legal drugs. Expand
E-cigarette use and relations to tobacco and alcohol use among adolescents
TLDR
It is concluded that EC use is likely to be additive to other tobacco use and increase the risk for alcohol use, therefore serving as another potential route to hazard for even mildly risk-prone minors. Expand
Effects of Electronic Cigarettes on Indoor Air Quality and Health
TLDR
Exposures to mainstream e-cig aerosols have biologic effects but only limited evidence shows adverse respiratory and cardiovascular effects in humans, and long-term studies are needed to better understand the dosimetry and health effects of exposures. Expand
Electronic cigarettes. What should you tell your patients
that heat a liquid into an aerosol for inhalation and simulate the behaviour of smoking. ECs are mainly used in Australia and overseas by tobacco smokers to help them quit or reduce smoking.1-3Expand

Electronic cigarettes (e‐cigs): views of aficionados and clinical/public health perspectives
TLDR
This research highlights the need to understand more fully the rationale behind the continued use of e‐cigs, as well as the risks and benefits to health and welfare. Expand
Acute electronic cigarette use: nicotine delivery and subjective effects in regular users
TLDR
These findings demonstrate reliable blood nicotine delivery after the acute use of this brand/model of e-cigarette in a sample of regular users, and Tobacco-related withdrawal symptoms and urge to smoke were significantly reduced. Expand
Comparison of the effects of e-cigarette vapor and cigarette smoke on indoor air quality
TLDR
The study indicates no apparent risk to human health from e-cigarette emissions based on the compounds analyzed, and for all byproducts measured, electronic cigarettes produce very small exposures relative to tobacco cigarettes. Expand
Electronic cigarettes and thirdhand tobacco smoke: two emerging health care challenges for the primary care provider
TLDR
Clinicians are well prepared to counsel smokers about newly recognized health concerns relevant to tobacco use, including new reports of residual environmental nicotine and other biopersistent toxicants found in cigarette smoke, recently described as “thirdhand smoke”. Expand
Electronic cigarettes: achieving a balanced perspective.
TLDR
It is argued that, while more research is needed on the cost-benefit equation of these products and the appropriate level and type of regulation for them, the harms have tended thus far to be overstated relative to the potential benefits. Expand
Electronic Cigarettes and Vaping: A New Challenge in Clinical Medicine and Public Health. A Literature Review
TLDR
A review of the scientific evidence-based primary literature concerning electronic cigarettes and vaping to ensure the medical community is able to adequately meet the new challenge e-cigarettes and vaping present to clinical medicine and public health. Expand
Conventional and electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) have different smoking characteristics.
TLDR
The decreased efficiency of aerosol production during e-cigarette smoking makes dosing nonuniform over time and calls into question their usefulness as nicotine delivery devices. Expand
Acute impact of active and passive electronic cigarette smoking on serum cotinine and lung function
TLDR
Regarding short-term usage, the studied e-cigarettes generate smaller changes in lung function but similar nicotinergic impact to tobacco cigarettes, and future research should target the health effects of long-term e-cigarette usage, including the effects of nicotine dosage. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that acute active and passive smoking using the e-cigarettes tested in the current study does not influence CBC indices in smokers and never smokers, respectively. Expand
Electronic Cigarette Use Among Middle and High School Students — United States, 2011–2012
TLDR
E-cigarettes that are not marketed for therapeutic purposes are currently unregulated by the Food and Drug Administration, and in most states there are no restrictions on the sale of e-cigarettes to minors. Expand
