Abstract

Researchers used human bronchial epithelial cells and smooth human airway muscle cells and tested them with the vapor of an eCig model, with 1.2% nicotine, with IQOS from 1.4 mg of nicotine and with a smoke extract produced by burning cigarettes with 1.2 mg of nicotine. Exposure to IQOS was as harmful as exposure to cigarette smoke at any concentration. Also the dangerous eCig if assimilated to medium and high concentration. However, further prospective studies will be needed to demonstrate that what is observed in vitro also occurs in vivo.
