Seeing e-cigarette use encourages young adult tobacco users to light up
Seeing people use electronic cigarettes increases the urge to smoke among regular combustible cigarettes users, according to a new study of young adult smokers.

(2017-02-21)

Study finds teen vaping probably doesn't lead to smoking
A new study in Nicotine & Tobacco Research suggests that adolescent e-cigarette users are more similar to conventional cigarette smokers than they are to non-tobacco users in terms of demographics and behavioral characteristics. While public health advocates have suggested that vaping may lead to cigarette smoking, this new research suggests that cigarette smoking may be entirely attributable to adolescents' pre-existing propensity to smoke, rather than their use of electronic cigarettes. (2019-11-04)

E-cigarettes can be 'gateway' to cigarettes for teens with no prior intention to smoke
Cigarette smoking remains a leading preventable cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. And while adolescent cigarette smoking has declined over the past several decades, e-cigarette use presents a new risk for nicotine use disorder. A new study, published Nov. 9 in the journal Pediatrics, finds that e-cigarette use is associated with a higher risk of cigarette smoking among adolescents who had no prior intention of taking up conventional smoking. These findings have strong implications for practice and policy, researchers say. (2020-11-09)

Vaping robots measure e-cig vapor delivered to lung cells in the lab
New research proves that e-cigarette aerosol droplets are effectively delivered to cell surfaces in lab-based biological tests.

In order to be confident in the results, it is necessary to demonstrate that the aerosol is effectively delivered to the cells used in these tests. (2016-12-08)

Acute exposure to Vype vapor has limited impact on gene expression in human lung cells
New research shows that at equivalent or higher doses of nicotine, acute exposure to e-cigarette vapor has very limited impact on gene expression compared to cigarette smoke. Scientists at British American Tobacco used nicotine as a reference point and exposed MucilAirâ„¢, a realistic in vitro 3-D model of a human airway, to e-cigarette vapor and cigarette smoke to assess their comparative effect on gene expression. (2017-04-18)

E-cigarettes effectively deliver nicotine
New research shows that e-cigarettes are as effective at delivering nicotine as conventional cigarettes, especially when used by experienced vapers. 'Our results tell us that newer generation e-cigarettes are more effective at delivering nicotine than first-generation e-cigarettes.

Reduced ignition propensity requirement may cause changes to cigarette smoke chemistry
For the first time, researchers have revealed the RIP bands in cigarettes cause two significant temperature changes that could explain differences in the chemical composition of smoke produced by RIP versus non-RIP cigarettes. RIP bands are designed to make a cigarette go out if it is not being actively smoked. Previous studies showed a possible impact of RIP on the biomarkers for a few polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in smokers of RIP cigarettes. (2014-03-04)

Are non-smoking young adults who use e-cigarettes more likely to smoke in the future?
Young people who have tried e-cigarettes but have never smoked before are nearly five times more likely to go on to try smoking, a new study has found.

Teen vaping 'one way bridge' to future smoking among non-smokers, say researchers
Teen vaping acts as a 'one way bridge' to future smoking among those who have never smoked before, and may not stop those who have smoked before from returning to it, concludes a small US study, published online in the journal Tobacco Control. (2017-02-07)

Habitual e-cigarette use associated with risk factors linked to increased cardiovascular risk
