    Between vapour and smoke? Prooxidant activity of electronic cigarette emissions

    TROFIMOV A.V.; MENSHOV V.A.
    Emanuel Institute of Biochemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russian Federation
    Electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) are considered among the most promising tools designed for the reduction of a potential harm derived from smoking. Nevertheless, debates exist over the scientific evidence for claims that e-cigs have no health-related ...

    Cigarette smoke as a source of exogenous and endogenous antioxidants in smokers: novel findings

    TROFIMOV A.V.; MENSHOV V.V.; YABLONSKAYA O.I.
    Emanuel Institute of Biochemical Physics, RAS, Moscow, Russian Federation
    Cellular oxidative stress, derived from imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen species and the efficacy of the antioxidant defence, can be a direct and/or indirect consequence of cigarette smoking. Pro-oxidant properties of cigarette smoke ...

    Performance of fire-cured tobacco with compost from urban sources

    COZZOLINO E.; LEONE V.; LOMBARDI P.
    Consiglio per la Ricerca e la Sperimentazione in Agricoltura - Unità di Ricerca per le Colture Alternative al Tabacco (CRA-CAT), Scafati (SA), Italy
    A two-year trial of Kentucky fire-cured tobacco fertilisation with compost from urban organic waste was conducted with three cultivars (Foiano, Riccio beneventano and SKL) on two farms in the province of Benevento (Italy). A commercial compost, produced ...

    New cultivars for the Italian Burley industry

    COZZOLINO E.; LEONE V.; LOMBARDI P.
    Consiglio per la Ricerca e la Sperimentazione in Agricoltura - Unità di Ricerca per le Colture Alternative al Tabacco (CRA-CAT), Scafati (SA), Italy
    Lack of information about cultivar adaptation to specific areas is a hindrance to the progress of the tobacco industry. To provide such information for Italian Burley areas, an on-farm variety trial is underway at Vitulazio, in the province of Caserta, ...

    Influence of gaseous phase components from mainstream cigarette smoke on the propensity of smoke particulate matter to generate hydrogen peroxide

    TROFIMOV A.V.; MENSHOV V.A.
    Emanuel Institute of Biochemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russian Federation
    Generation of hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2) by chemicals in mainstream cigarette smoke is of prime interest for the estimation of the pro-oxidant activity of the smoke. Since most of phenolic compounds (potential H 2 O 2 precursors) reside in the ...

    Chemiluminescence approach to monitor efficiency of cigarette filters

    TROFIMOV A.V.; MENSHOV V.A.
    Emanuel Institute of Biochemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russian Federation
    It is known that fresh cigarette smoke is at an excited state and this is reflected by the light emission or chemiluminescence. Chemiluminescence of the cigarette smoke can be measured from the mainstream smoke emitted from cigarette filters. In this work ...
