    Heterocyclic aromatic amines in cigarettes smoke: chemical and biological assessments

    TEILLET B.; COUILLARD V.; BLIN N.; SEVESTRE O.; ACHARD S.; TROUDE V.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    To explicit the contribution of Heterocyclic Aromatic Amines (HAA) on the toxicity of mainstream cigarette smoke, both developments of chemical and biological analyses are required. The successful of HAA (IQ, MeIQ, Trp-P-1, Trp-P-2, Glu-P-1, Glu-P-2, AaC, ...

    A new Romanian flue-cured cultivar : Virginia 177

    CIUPERCA A.; PAUNESCU M.; PAUNESCU A.D.; BOLD I.; DUMITRASCU P.
    Central Research Station for Tobacco Culture and Industrialization, Bucharest, Romania.
    The improvement of the chemical and industrial quality of Virginia tobacco in Romania represents the main objective for those involved in tobacco research, production and industrialization. The most important way to achieve this objective is the change of ...

    The prevention of TSWV attack in the Burley fields in Romania

    STANESCU V.; PAUNESCU A.D.; DIMA A.; PAUNESCU M.; BURCEA A.M.; SANISLAV N.
    Central Research Station for Tobacco Culture and Industrialization, Bucharest, Romania.
    The Burley cultivars are very sensitive to virosis, in general, and to TSWV, in particular.Yield and quality of the obtained tobacco largely depend on the prevention of this virus, and this is managed by the chemical control of Thrips tabaci Lind., the ...

    Smoking behaviour and smoke exposure : comparison of full flavour and light cigarette smokers

    MARCHAND V.; DELARUE-VARIGNON B.; TESSIER C.; CHABRILLAT N.; FRETEY D.; CAHOURS X.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    We published last year results indicating that under natural conditions, the total smoke exposure decreased for smokers switching from a full flavour brand to the light corresponding brand. The amount of the decrease was then concordant with the decrease ...

    Prediction of a biological variable (Ames test on TPM) and of a chemical variable (TSNAs in smoke) according to the tobacco's chemical and physical characteristics

    BOUZIGE M.; VIDAL B.; BIESSE J.P.; JOUSSERAND C.; MARCHAND V.; DUMERY B.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Chemical analyses of special analytes (e.g. TSNAs) or biological tests on the smoke are rather sophisticated and time consuming technologies. Giving estimates based on fast analyses would enable the blenders to have a tool allowing them to reduce tobacco ...

    Near-infrared spectroscopy and pattern recognition as screening methods for classification of commercial tobacco blends

    FIGUERES G.; ANDRIEU E.; BIESSE J.P.; VIDAL B.; DUMERY B.
    Altadis Research Centre, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Group classification of tobacco blends is commonly performed using several different types of compositional data including tobacco compounds, additive or process components. But all of these wet chemistry methods are relatively time-consuming. A need ...

    The influence of the physiologically active substances and of the natural bioregulators on tobacco seed, seedlings and plants

    DIMA A.; PAUNESCU A.D.; PAUNESCU M.; CIUPERCA A.; MILITARU D.C.
    Central Research Station for Tobacco Culture and Industrialization, Bucharest, Romania.
    The goal of the research was to improve the germination of tobacco seeds in order to obtain a healthy, vigorous, uniform seedling, ready to be transplanted in the shortest time. For the tobacco seed, cultivar Baragan 132, the following variants were used: ...
