Exposure Nicotine Tobacco Toxicants

Exposure to nicotine and tobacco-related toxicants in long-term users of nicotine-containing products

There is little evidence about the long-term health impact of e-cigarette use. This project compared carcinogen and toxicant body-level exposure of long-term users of e-cigarettes with exposure among long-term users of nicotine replacement therapy and smokers. Results of this comparison will be published shortly.
