Electronic cigarettes, handheld devices that generate an aerosol that may contain nicotine by heating a solution or e-liquid, have been increasingly used especially in the young population. The aerosol's composition is determined by temperature, and by the substances contained in the heated liquid: glycerin, propylene glycol, nicotine in variable concentrations, flavoring agents, and other non-nicotine compounds. >80 compounds (including known toxics, e.g., formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, metallic… Expand
A Retrospective Analysis of Chemical Constituents in Regulated and Unregulated E-Cigarette Liquids
E-cigarette or vaping use-associated lung injury (EVALI) was identified with the incidents of a multi-state outbreak of acute lung injuries associated with the use of electronic cigarettes (e-cigs)Expand
Journal Club-Electronic Cigarettes and Vaping as a Harm Reduction Alternative: Really?
TLDR
E-cigarettes have become a multi-billion-dollar industry and projections suggest that their sales will surpass combustible cigarettes by 2023 and there are few regulations concerning access to these devices and there is high utilization by teenagers and reports of use by middle school children. Expand
Electronic Cigarettes and Asthma: What Do We Know So Far?
TLDR
Electronic cigarettes seem to worsen asthma symptoms and the rate and severity of exacerbations in asthmatics who are current vapers, whilst evidence suggests that its effectiveness as a smoking cessation tool might be limited. Expand
Retinal tissue develops an inflammatory reaction to tobacco smoke and electronic cigarette vapor in mice
TLDR
It is demonstrated that exposure to C-cigarette smoke is harmful to the retina and the exposure to E-cigarette vapor increases the occurrence and progression of inflammatory and angiogenic stimuli in the retina, which might also be related to the onset of wet AMD in humans. Expand
A review of constituents identified in e-cigarette liquids and aerosols
TLDR
E-liquids and aerosols contain a variety of chemicals with potential health effects from inhaling them and secondhand health effects are unknown because of limited understanding of the dose of exposure by non-users. Expand
Electronic Cigarettes and Cardiovascular Risk: Caution Waiting for Evidence
TLDR
An up-to-date overview of the current state of knowledge regarding electronic cigarettes and their impact on human health, with special emphasis on their effect on cardiovascular diseases is provided. Expand
ENDS use among college students: Salivary biomarkers and persistent cough.
TLDR
Dysregulation of salivary immune profiles toward a TH1 phenotype in emerging adult ENDS users and short-term immune function may be dysregulated in young adult e-cigarette users are revealed. Expand
Modeling drug exposure in rodents using e-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine delivery systems
TLDR
This review examines the peripheral and central effects of ENDS-mediated exposure to nicotine and other drugs of abuse in rodents and evaluates current techniques for implementing ENDS in preclinical research. Expand
Improving on estimates of the potential relative harm to health from using modern ENDS (vaping) compared to tobacco smoking
TLDR
It is suggested that the use of modern ENDS devices (vaping) could be a third as harmful to health as smoking in a high-income country setting, based on a limited number of biomarker studies. Expand
Improving on estimates of the relative harm to health from using modern ENDS (vaping) compared to tobacco smoking
TLDR
It is suggested that the use of modern ENDS devices (vaping) could be a third as harmful to health as smoking in a high-income country setting. Expand

Electronic cigarettes: human health effects
TLDR
While e-cigarette aerosol may contain fewer toxicants than cigarette smoke, studies evaluating whether e-cigarettes are less harmful than cigarettes are inconclusive and some evidence suggests that e- cigarette use may facilitate smoking cessation, but definitive data are lacking. Expand
Pulmonary toxicity of e-cigarettes.
TLDR
An updated review of the pulmonary toxicity profile of e-cig aerosols is provided, summarizing evidence from cell culture, animal models, and human subjects, and highlighting the major gaps in current understanding. 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
Vapors Produced by Electronic Cigarettes and E-Juices with Flavorings Induce Toxicity, Oxidative Stress, and Inflammatory Response in Lung Epithelial Cells and in Mouse Lung
TLDR
Exposure to e-cig aerosols/juices incurs measurable oxidative and inflammatory responses in lung cells and tissues that could lead to unrealized health consequences. Expand
Electronic Cigarettes: Their Constituents and Potential Links to Asthma
TLDR
This review will summarize existing data on potential health effects of components present in e-cig aerosols, such as propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine, and flavorings, and discuss their relevance in the context of asthma, and disregard potential toxicity of components unique to flavored e-cigs. Expand
Levels of selected carcinogens and toxicants in vapour from electronic cigarettes
TLDR
The findings of this study are consistent with the idea that substituting tobacco cigarettes with e-cigarettes may substantially reduce exposure to selected tobacco-specific toxicants. Expand
Chronic electronic cigarette exposure in mice induces features of COPD in a nicotine-dependent manner
TLDR
The effects of exposure to aerosolised nicotine-free and nicotine-containing e-cigarette fluid on mouse lungs and normal human airway epithelial cells were nicotine-dependent, suggesting that inhaled nicotine contributes to airway and lung disease in addition to its addictive properties. Expand
Exposure to Electronic Cigarettes Impairs Pulmonary Anti-Bacterial and Anti-Viral Defenses in a Mouse Model
TLDR
It is demonstrated that E-cig exposure elicits impaired pulmonary anti-microbial defenses and must be rigorously tested in users for their effects on immune response and susceptibility to bacterial and viral infections. Expand
Electronic cigarettes: what are they and what do they do?
TLDR
The current literature suggests a strong rationale for an empirical regulatory approach toward ECIGs that balances any potential ECIG‐mediated decreases in health risks for smokers who use them as substitutes for tobacco cigarettes against any increased risks for nonsmokers who may be attracted to them. Expand
Secondhand exposure to vapors from electronic cigarettes.
TLDR
Using an e-cigarette in indoor environments may involuntarily expose nonusers to nicotine but not to toxic tobacco-specific combustion products, especially among vulnerable populations, including children, pregnant women, and people with cardiovascular conditions. Expand
