Verification of smoking history in patients after infarction using urinary nicotine and cotinine measurements.

Abstract

Urinary concentrations of nicotine and its major metabolite cotinine were measured in volunteers whose smoking habits were known to test the reliability of the measurements as indicators of current smoking. In the non-smokers detectable concentrations were always below the confidence limits set for the method, while in smokers the concentrations were always… (More)
