The study, published in the American Journal of Physiology, involved 13 non-smokers, 14 smokers and 12 e-cigarette users. Participants were asked to document their smoking/vaping activity. Urine and blood samples were drawn to determine nicotine levels and tobacco biomarkers. About three weeks later, nasal samples were collected for genetic assessment.
