BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare cotinine determinations in three biological fluids for assessing environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) exposure in female non-smokers (n=1605) in Italy. METHODS Information about ETS exposure at home, in the workplace, and in other places within the previous week was collected via questionnaire. Plasma, salivary and urinary cotinine levels were measured. Cotinine levels of > or =0.1 ng/mL for plasma, > or =0.2 ng/mL for saliva, and > or =0.5 ng/mL… CONTINUE READING
