Association of nicotine dependence susceptibility gene, CHRNA5, with Parkinson's disease age at onset: Gene and smoking status interaction

Our preliminary results suggest that the ND risk variant, rs588765, has a protective effect in PD, and is associated with later AAO, but only when the individual was previously exposed to nicotine. This may be explained by modulating the neuroprotective

Motivations for genetic testing for lung cancer risk among young smokers

In addition to learning about health risks, young people may be motivated to seek genetic testing for reasons, such as gaining knowledge about new genetic technologies more broadly.

Is the Fagerström test for nicotine dependence invariant across secular trends in smoking? A question for cross-birth cohort analysis of nicotine dependence

The Fagerström Test for Nicotine Dependence... These findings suggest that possible FTND non-invariance that occurs across study samples of various birth years has a negligible impact on study results.

ARCHIVE: ‘Lung-in-the-lab’ shows e-cigarette vapour does not cause DNA damage in human cells

Scientists at British American Tobacco used lab-based cellular tests to examine the impact of cigarette smoke and Vype e-cigarette vapour on human lung cells. The most serious kind of DNA damage is double-strand break, which effectively means that both

Three new lung cancer genetic biomarkers identified

SNPs (single-nucleotide polymorphisms) are variations in our DNA that determine our susceptibility to developing some diseases. Using the largest genome-wide SNP-smoking interaction analysis reported for lung cancer, a research team has identified three n

Cigarette Smoking alters Epigenetics

smoke from cigarettes actually changes the epigenetic makeup of DNA, thereby paving the road to lung cancer. Unfortunately, smoking is responsible for death in about 50% of the people who don’t quit. Unfortunately, second hand smoke affects children and

‘Epigenetic’ Changes From Cigarette Smoke May be First Step in Lung Cancer Development

say they have preliminary evidence in laboratory-grown, human airway cells that a condensed form of cigarette smoke triggers so-called “epigenetic” changes in the cells consistent with the earliest steps toward lung cancer development.

Stop smoking: This is the hidden danger that YOU didn’t know

The University of North Carolina (UNC) have created a method for recording the damage at high resolution across the genome. They can now map all harm caused by the major chemical carcinogen - benzo[α]pyrene (BaP).
