This review evaluates the presumed contribution of acetaldehyde to tobacco smoke addiction. In rodents, acetaldehyde induces reinforcing effects, and acts in concert with nicotine. Harman and salsolinol, condensation products of acetaldehyde and biogenic amines, may be responsible for the observed reinforcing effect of acetaldehyde. Harman and salsolinol inhibit monoamine oxidase (MAO), and some MAO-inhibitors are known to increase nicotine self-administration and maintain behavioural… Expand
Contribution of Monoamine Oxidase Inhibition to Tobacco Dependence: A Review of the Evidence.

TLDR
A comprehensive review of the available evidence for the role of MAO inhibition by tobacco-derived substances in tobacco dependence points the way for further research in this field. Expand
The Role of Harmane and Norharmane in In Vitro Dopaminergic Function
Background. Nicotine is one of the most frequently used drugs of abuse. It has long been speculated that in addition to nicotine, tobacco contains other compounds that reinforce addiction. TwoExpand
Elimination of Cigarette Smoke-derived Acetaldehyde in Saliva by Slow-release L-Cysteine Lozenge Is a Potential New Method to Assist Smoking Cessation. A Randomised, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Intervention.
TLDR
If the efficacy of Acetium lozenge can be confirmed in an adequately powered study, this new approach would represent a major breakthrough in smoking quit intervention because slow-release L-cysteine is non-toxic with no side-effects or limitations of use. Expand
Repeated Administration of Cigarette Smoke Condensate Increases Glutamate Levels and Behavioral Sensitization
TLDR
It is suggested that the CSC-induced psychomotor activities are closely associated with the elevation of glutamate concentrations in the rat dorsal striatum, which would suggest that the reinforcing effects of tobacco dependence are related to the hyperactivation of glutamate levels. Expand
Tobacco smoke exposure induces nicotine dependence in rats
TLDR
Tobacco smoke exposure leads to nicotine dependence as indicated by precipitated affective and somatic withdrawal signs and induces an upregulation of nAChRs in the hippocampus. Expand
Salsolinol-like compounds as biomarkers of human alcohol consumption, disease and toxicity
Introduction. The use, misuse, and abuse of ethanol, man’s oldest drug, has constituted a major public health concern. Ethanol use is a contributing factor for more than 200 diseases, making itExpand
Exposure to Commercial Cigarette Smoke Produces Psychomotor Sensitization via Hyperstimulation of Glutamate Response in the Dorsal Striatum
TLDR
It is suggested that non-nicotine alkaloids in commercial cigarette smoke synergistically act with nicotine on nAChRs, thereby upregulating glutamatergic response in the dorsal striatum, which contributes to the hypersensitization of psychomotor behaviors. Expand
The effects of acetaldehyde on nicotine-induced transmitter levels in young and adult brain areas
TLDR
Examining the effect of acetaldehyde administration on neurotransmitters in the presence of nicotine in brain areas associated with cognition and reward in Sprague-Dawley rats found acetaldehyde was more stimulatory in young and more inhibitory in the adult brain areas tested, which could explain its stimulating nicotine reward only in young animals.

Tobacco addiction and the dysregulation of brain stress systems

  • 2012
TLDR
It is indicated that smoking briefly decreases subjective stress levels but also leads to a further dysregulation of brain stress systems, which may diminish nicotine withdrawal and improve smoking cessation rates. Expand
Neuropeptide systems and new treatments for nicotine addiction
TLDR
Drugs that target neuropeptide systems might decrease the euphoric effects of smoking and improve relapse rates by diminishing withdrawal symptoms and improving stress resilience. Expand

Monoamine oxidases and tobacco smoking.
TLDR
It is speculated that MAO inhibition by compounds found in either tobacco or tobacco smoke can potentiate nicotine's effects and more effective anti-smoking drug strategies may be developed. Expand

TLDR
Although several condensation products have initial appeal as clinical or pathological indicators in chronic alcoholism, thorough and statistically sound studies are needed before conclusions can be reached concerning any particular biogenic amine-derived product. Expand

TLDR
While current NRT methods have been the mainstay of smoking cessation treatment and will likely continue to serve a useful role, the next stage of progress will likely entail the development of tools designed with recognition of the importance of nonnicotine components of cigarette smoking. Expand
Platelet monoamine oxidase, smoking cessation, and tobacco withdrawal symptoms.
TLDR
The view that MAO inhibition from non-nicotine constituents in cigarette smoke is relevant to tobacco dependence is supported and that continued investigation of the potential use of MAO inhibitors in smoking cessation treatment is warranted. Expand
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibition Dramatically Increases the Motivation to Self-Administer Nicotine in Rats
TLDR
The results suggest that the inhibition of MAO activity by compounds present in tobacco smoke may combine with nicotine to produce the intense reinforcing properties of cigarette smoking that lead to addiction. Expand
Acetaldehyde in mainstream tobacco smoke: formation and occurrence in smoke and bioavailability in the smoker.
TLDR
Experimental data supports the following conclusions: Tobacco sugar-derived MS smoke acetaldehyde from commercial cigarettes is unlikely to result in direct central nervous system effects on the smoker. Expand
Monoamine oxidase and tobacco dependence.
TLDR
A review of the current knowledge of the association between MAO and tobacco dependence is provided and it is suggested that further research into this topic is likely to lead to more effective pharmacotherapies for smoking cessation. Expand
Is ethanol a pro-drug? The role of acetaldehyde in the central effects of ethanol.
TLDR
Current evidence indicates that acetaldehyde is not involved in some of the major neurochemical effects of ethanol, and it is likely that ethanol and acetaldehyde molecules act synergistically to determine the multiple neurochemical and behavioral effects of alcohol consumption. Expand
Neuropharmacological actions of cigarette smoke: brain monoamine oxidase B (MAO B) inhibition.
TLDR
Though nicotine is at the core of the neuropharmacological actions of tobacco smoke, MAO B inhibition may also be an important variable in understanding and treating tobacco smoke addiction. Expand
Human monoamine oxidase is inhibited by tobacco smoke: beta-carboline alkaloids act as potent and reversible inhibitors.
TLDR
Results suggest that beta-carboline alkaloids from cigarette smoke acting as potent reversible inhibitors of MAO enzymes may contribute to the MAO-reduced activity produced by tobacco smoke in smokers. Expand
