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

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

‘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.
