Special Issue "Tobacco Smoke Exposure and Related Diseases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
Interests: pulmonary disease; immunotoxicity; toxic mechanism; particles; hazard chemicals
Interests: pharmacology and toxicology; safety assessment; nanoparticles; regulatory toxicology
As is well known, tobacco or tobacco smoke is made up of more than 7000 chemicals, and dozens of carcinogens are contained in the mixture. In addition, smoking is the leading cause of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Although evidence for a causal relationship between smoking and these diseases has been demonstrated by many researchers, the scientific evidence is still scare. Thus, there are still significant limitations when it comes to curing these diseases. The aim of this Special Issue of Toxics, “Tobacco Smoke Exposure and Related Diseases” is to publish articles that study tobacco- or tobacco-smoke-related diseases in the pharmacological and toxicological field. The submission of hypotheses, opinions and commentaries, computational or modeling studies, and meta-analyses is also welcomed.
