Comparison of the effects of e-cigarette vapor and cigarette smoke on indoor air quality

Conclusion For all byproducts measured, electronic cigarettes produce very small exposures relative to tobacco cigarettes. The study indicates no apparent risk to human health from e-cigarette emissions based on the compounds analyzed. Context: Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) have earned considerable attention recently as an alternative to smoking tobacco, but uncertainties about …

Effects of electronic cigarette use on the elastic properties of the ascending aorta in healthy subjects: comparison with the effects of tobacco cigarettes

Conclusion Significantly decreased elasticity and elevated stiffness of ascending aorta was observed after smoking, confirming previous studies. However, no adverse effects were observed after using the EC(electronic cigarette). Research on ECs(ecigs) should be intensified since they may be potentially useful in reducing the adverse vascular effects associated with smoking. Introduction …

Cytotoxicity evaluation of electronic cigarette vapor extract on cultured mammalian fibroblasts (ClearStream-LIFE): comparison with tobacco cigarette smoke extract

Conclusion This study indicates that EC(ecig) vapor is significantly less cytotoxic compared tobacco CS. These results should be validated by clinical studies. Abstract Context: Electronic cigarettes (ECs) are used as alternatives to smoking; however, data on their cytotoxic potential are scarce. Objective: To evaluate the cytotoxic potential of 21 EC …

Comparison of the Cytotoxic Potential of Cigarette Smoke and Electronic Cigarette Vapour Extract on Cultured Myocardial Cells

Conclusion Cytotoxic = toxic to living cells. For EC(elelectronic cigarette) extracts produced by high-voltage and energy, viability was reduced but no sample was cytotoxic according to ISO 10993-5 definition. Vapour produced by the “base” liquid was not cytotoxic at any extract concentration. This study indicates that some EC samples have …
