Current research on cigarette toxicity: critical appraisal in view of clinical laboratory

Gyawali, Prajwal ORCID: and Oguoma, Victor Maduabuchi (2016) Current research on cigarette toxicity: critical appraisal in view of clinical laboratory. International Journal of Research in Medical Sciences, 4 (6). pp. 1785-1793. ISSN 2320-6071


Cigarette smoking has been implicated as a potential risk factor for development and progression of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD), including ischemic heart disease. Although, several methods are in existence to measuring cigarette toxicity, evidence regarding adoption of a gold standard technique is still imprecise. In this study, we reviewed articles describing methods of measuring cigarette toxicity in relation to clinical laboratory practice. A critical analysis of the benefits and limitations of each method in relation to low-middle income countries is discussed.
