View Long Abstract
Mass spectrometry is playing an increasingly important role in studies of nicotine pharmacology and tobacco toxicology. In this presentation, some recent applications of mass spectrometry in multidisciplinary clinical research will be discussed. These will include quantitative chromatographic - mass spectrometric methods in studies of individual differences in nicotine metabolism, studies of secondhand smoke exposure and its effects on symptoms and outcome of chronic and acute disease, and studies of carcinogen exposure in hookah smokers.
