A human respiratory tissue model to assess the toxicity of inhaled chemicals and pollutants

A 3-dimensional model of human respiratory tissue has been shown to be an effective platform for measuring the impact of chemicals, like those found in cigarette smoke, or other aerosols on the lung. The researchers plan to use the model to compare the toxicological effect of repeated exposures to aerosols generated from conventional and next-generation tobacco and nicotine products, such as electronic cigarettes. —> Read More
