E-cigarettes 'raise the risk of infection by damaging hundreds of genes in the immune system'

Smoking e-cigarettes increases the risk of infection because it damages hundreds of genes in the immune system, new research warns. The devices alter hundreds of genes that control immune cells in the upper respiratory tract - the throat, mouth, nose and

Vapers and Smokers Have Similar Airway Gene Alterations

Vapers showed decreased expression of a large number of immune-related genes, including all genes found to be decreased in cigarette smokers. The findings do not imply that e-cigarette use has the same health impact as cigarette smoking, but they do sugg

Vapers and Smokers Have Similar Airway Gene Alterations

E-cigarette use is associated with significant changes in immune-related gene expression in the nasal mucosa similar to those reported in cigarette smokers, according to findings from a prospective study that compared gene-expression profiles in nonsmoke

[Brazil] Smoking Damages Sperm

Brazilian researchers analyzed the sperm of 20 smokers and 20 nonsmokers and found that the smokers’ sperm was damaged in ways that could reduce the chance of fertilization and might also lead to health problems in the baby. The DNA in smokers’ sperm wa

Smoking may have negative effects on sperm quality

Researchers also assessed 422 proteins in participants' sperm. One protein was absent, 27 proteins were underrepresented, and 6 proteins were over-represented in smokers. Analyses of these proteins suggest that cigarette smoking may promote an inflammato

Analysis of the functional aspects and seminal plasma proteomic profile of sperm from smokers

cigarette smoking was associated with an inflammatory state in the accessory glands and in the testis, as shown by enriched proteomic pathways. This state causes an alteration in sperm functional quality, which is characterized by decreased acrosome integ

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.
