We tested e-liquids on the human cell line HEK293T and measured toxicity, mitochondria! membrane potential (Delta Psi(m)), reactive oxygen species production (ROS), and cellular membrane potential (V-m) using high-throughput screening (HTS) approaches.
Cigar/cigarillo smoking has been considered a safer alternative to cigarettes; however, the health risks associated with cigar in comparison with cigarette smoking are not well understood. To address this knowledge gap, we characterized the effects of multiple brands of cigarillos on the airway epithelium using ex vivo and in vivo models. To analyze these effects, we assessed the cellular viability and integrity of smoke-exposed primary airway cell cultures.
