In their work “Respiratory health effects of e-cigarette substitution for tobacco cigarettes: a systematic review”, researchers analyzed 16 studies from 20 publications: most of the studies showed no difference in respiratory parameters. This indicates that electronic nicotine delivery systems substitution for smoking likely does not result in additional harm to respiratory health.
Two CoEHAR researchers will be part of this great event: The CoEHAR Director, Giovanni Li Volti, who is also PI of the replica project, will discuss the latest results of the Replica project and the IN silicon Science Pi, Dr. Renée O’Leary, will present her latest work.
Replica researchers performed a standard toxicology battery of three assays used for product assessment and regulatory applications.

“However, it is important to understand a fact when talking about smoking: even today, nicotine is believed to play a major role in the developing of atherosclerosis” explains prof. Polosa “Nicotine does not cause atherosclerosis. In a survey conducted by SERMO on 1000 Italian doctors, it was found that 62 percent of the sample still think that atherosclerosis is caused by nicotine. The fact that 33 percent of the sample is made up of cardiologists is significant".
On Monday 11 September, prof. Caponnetto has presented "Varenicline and counseling for vaping cessation: A double-blind, randomized, parallel-group, placebo-controlled trial".
