Abstract

CELL cultures exposed to the gas vapour phase of cigarette smoke have been reported to display essentially the same alterations as those exposed to whole cigarette smoke1–4. Furthermore, animals inhaling either whole smoke or the gas vapour phase of cigarette smoke have been reported to show increased pulmonary carcinogenesis5,6 and immunosuppression6–8.
