Cigarette smoke is an aerosol that contains >4,000 chemicals, including nicotine, carbon monoxide, acrolein, and oxidant compounds. Exposure to cigarette smoke induces multiple pathological effects in the endothelium, several of which are the result of oxidative stress initiated by reactive oxygen species, reactive nitrogen species, and other oxidant constituents of cigarette smoke. Cigarette-smoke exposure interferes adversely with the control of all stages of plaque formation and development… Expand
Effects of Smoking on Oxidative Stress and Vascular Function
TLDR
This chapter discussed the role of endothelial dysfunction and its contributing factors, such as oxidative stress and inflammation, in the development of cardiovascular diseases and reported the studies which investigated the effect of tobacco and electronic smoking on the biomarkers of endothelium dysfunction, oxidative stress, and inflammation. Expand
Contribution of arginase activation to vascular dysfunction in cigarette smoking.
TLDR
Endothelial NOS is uncoupled by smoking exposure, leading to endothelial dysfunction and vascular stiffness, a process that is prevented by Arg2 deletion, and Arg2 upregulation is identified as a critical pathogenic factor and target for therapy in oxidative injury following smoking exposure.

TLDR
This review focuses on the various roles of nicotine in atherosclerosis, such as upregulation of growth factors, inflammation, and the dysfunction of endothelial cells, vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) as well as macrophages, and elaborate on the regulatory mechanism of nicotine on Atherosclerosis. Expand
Effect of Cigarette Smoke on Gut Microbiota: State of Knowledge
TLDR
The current knowledge about the mechanistic interaction between cigarette smoke and intestinal microbiota dysbiosis is reviewed, the likely actions of nicotine, aldehydes, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, heavy metals, volatile organic compounds and toxic gases are reviewed, and the potential mechanisms of the lung–gut cross talk and skin-gutcross talk in regulating the balance of intestinal microbiota are revealed. Expand
Smoking and Cardiovascular DiseaseSignificance
TLDR
The present review aims at providing a comprehensive summary of published data from clinical and animal studies, as well as results of basic research on the proatherogenic effect of smoking, to suggest the most effective measure for reversing damage that has already occurred and preventing fatal cardiovascular outcomes. Expand
Exposure to Cigarette Smoke Augments Post-ischemic Brain Injury and Inflammation via Mobilization of Neutrophils and Monocytes
TLDR
It is reported that exposure to cigarette smoke exacerbated ischemic brain injury in mice subjected to transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO), and it is suggested that cigarette smoke-induced mobilization of peripheral neutrophils and monocytes augments ischeic brain injury. Expand
Biglycan expression in current cigarette smokers: a possible link between active smoking and atherogenesis.
TLDR
BGN-mRNA was enhanced in young smokers, compared to controls, and appears associated to a proatherogenic profile, characterized by increased fibrinogen, CRP, and IL-6, lower HDL-C, altered AS and cIMT values, particularly in those with higher SEIx. Expand
Residual Risk of Nicotine
TLDR
This chapter summarizes the current knowledge about the effects of nicotine exposure on the circulatory system, lungs, female and male reproductive organs, and developing fetus and critically reviews nicotine's potential involvement in cardiovascular diseases, lung cancer, and developmental defects. Expand
Effects of Exposure to Tobacco Cigarette, Electronic Cigarette and Heated Tobacco Product on Adipocyte Survival and Differentiation In Vitro
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CS extract, in contrast to HTP and ECIG extracts, significantly impairs differentiation of pre-adipocytes to beige adipocytes and may therefore impact significantly adipose tissue metabolic function. Expand
Protection from cigarette smoke‐induced vascular injury by recombinant human relaxin‐2 (serelaxin)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that RLX is capable of counteracting CS‐mediated vascular damage and dysfunction by reducing oxidative stress, thus adding a tile to the growing mosaic of the beneficial effects of RLX in CVD. Expand

Cigarette Smoke Impairs Endothelial Cell Prostacyclin Production
TLDR
This in vitro study shows that impairment of an endothelial cell function is related to a risk factor for atherosclerosis. Expand
The pathophysiology of cigarette smoking and cardiovascular disease: an update.
TLDR
Recent experimental and clinical data support the hypothesis that cigarette smoke exposure increases oxidative stress as a potential mechanism for initiating cardiovascular dysfunction. Expand
Structural and functional alteration of blood vessels caused by cigarette smoking: an overview of molecular mechanisms.
TLDR
Findings point to some discrepancies when the effects of whole smoke are compared to nicotine alone, while there is almost uniform agreement that both active and passive smoking have detrimental effects on the cardiovascular system, although a milder effect was suggested for the latter. Expand
Cigarette smoke is an endothelial stressor and leads to cell cycle arrest.
TLDR
An increased stress and inflammation response indicates that endothelial damage from smoking could contribute to immune cell infiltration, while decreased growth rates reduce endothelial layer repair, promoting atherogenesis. Expand
Lipid-soluble cigarette smoking particles induce expression of inflammatory and extracellular-matrix-related genes in rat cerebral arteries
TLDR
DSP induces cerebral vessel inflammation with activation of p38 MAPK inflammatory signal and the downstream transcriptional factors (ATF-2 and Elk-1) in parallel with enhanced extracellular-matrix-related gene transcription and increased AT1 receptor expression in the cerebral arteries, which are key events in stroke pathogenesis. Expand
Relevance of endothelial-haemostatic dysfunction in cigarette smoking.
TLDR
Evidence that loss of normal endothelial function may result in a loss of the balance of the haemostatic system and in changes of the platelet physiology that may be relevant for the pathogenic effect of smoking on the development of atherothrombosis is reviewed. Expand
Acrolein activates matrix metalloproteinases by increasing reactive oxygen species in macrophages.
TLDR
Observations suggest that ROS-dependent activation of MMPs by acrolein could destabilize atherosclerotic lesions during brief episodes of inflammation or pollutant exposure. Expand
Effect of a cigarette smoke extract on the metabolism of the proinflammatory autacoid, platelet-activating factor.
TLDR
The increase of PAF may contribute to the increased incidence of cardiovascular and lung diseases known to be present in smokers and may account for the increase in the plasma PAF concentration that is known to occur in smokers. Expand
Upregulation of xanthine oxidase by tobacco smoke condensate in pulmonary endothelial cells.
TLDR
Results indicate that tobacco smoke condensate causes upregulation of XO transcription and activity. Expand
Chronic cigarette smoking causes hypertension, increased oxidative stress, impaired NO bioavailability, endothelial dysfunction, and cardiac remodeling in mice.
TLDR
This mouse model is a useful tool to enable further elucidation of the molecular and cellular mechanisms of smoking-induced cardiovascular diseases and led to blunted weight gain, hypertension, endothelial dysfunction, leukocyte activation with ROS generation, decreased NO bioavailability and mild cardiac hypertrophy in mice that were not otherwise predisposed to disease.
