[Denmark, UK] AHRR (cg05575921) hypomethylation marks smoking behaviour, morbidity and mortality [FREE FULL TEXT]

Self-reported smoking underestimates disease risk. Smoking affects DNA methylation... Conclusion AHRR (cg05575921) hypomethylation, a marker of smoking behaviour, provides potentially clinical relevant predictions of future smoking-related morbidity and

Largest genome-wide study of lung cancer susceptibility identifies new causes

Although tobacco smoking is the main risk factor, past studies have shown heritability of lung cancer estimated at 18%. Previous genomewide association studies have identified several lung cancer susceptibility loci but most of its heritability remains un

Where cigarette smoking's damage is done... down to your DNA

Now, for the first time, UNC School of Medicine scientists created a method for effectively mapping that DNA damage at high resolution across the genome. The innovation comes from the laboratory of Nobel laureate Aziz Sancar, MD, PhD, the Sarah Graham Ke

Vapor from novel tobacco hybrid device minimally impacts human cells

New laboratory data reveal that vapour from a novel hybrid tobacco heating product (THP) iFuse and two standard THPs produced little or no effect on human cells in biological testing. ‘Our results suggest that these standard THPs and our novel hybrid pr

Testing familial transmission of smoking with two different research designs

Shared family environment influences smoking, over and above genetic factors. Genetic risk of smoking heaviness was only important for individuals exposed to smoking during childhood, versus those not exposed (GxE).
