E-cigarette use results in suppression of immune and inflammatory-response genes in nasal epithelial cells similar to cigarette smoke

Taken together, these data indicate that vaping e-cigarettes is associated with decreased expression of a large number of immune-related genes, which are consistent with immune suppression at the level of the nasal mucosa.

Pulmonary Effects of Exposure to Tobacco Smoke and New Tobacco Products

smoking cigarettes causes suppression of several key immune genes in the nasal mucosa. E-cig users showed the same changes in immune genes as cigarette smokers. However, e-cig users also demonstrated suppression of several additional immune genes, suggest

Pharmacotherapy Effects on Smoking Cessation Vary with Nicotine Metabolism Gene (CYP2A6)

Evidence suggests that both the nicotinic receptor α5 subunit (CHRNA5) and Cytochrome P450 2A6 (CYP2A6) genotypes influence smoking cessation success and response to pharmacotherapy. We examine the effect of CYP2A6 genotype on smoking cessation success a
