Special virtual seminar event presented by Amanda J. Quisenberry, Ph.D. & Thivanka Muthumalage, Ph.D.
This presentation will provide an overview of the effects of flavored novel tobacco products, including electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) and heated tobacco products (IQOS), on appeal and toxicity. Preliminary findings from qualitative interview methods and the Experimental Tobacco Marketplace can predict the appeal and abuse liability of heated tobacco products. We will then explore the cytotoxicity of aerosols found in flavored ENDS pods on lung cells. Preliminary results suggest that flavored pods (JUUL and similar pods) induce cellular inflammation, epithelial barrier dysfunction, and DNA damage in lung epithelial cells and monocytes.
This event is a collaboration between the University of Rochester CTSI and CRoFT.
