Interactions between lung surfactant and components of e-liquid

Physicochemical studies of direct interactions between lung surfactant and components of electronic cigarettes liquid mixtures

https://doi.org/10.1080/08958378.2018.1478916

Results

The results showed that high local concentrations (>200 × higher than the estimated average dose after a single puffing session) may induce measurable changes in biophysical activity of lung surfactant. However, only ultra-high e-liquid concentrations inactivated the surfactant. Physiochemical characterization of e-liquids provide additional insights for the safety assessment of electronic nicotine delivery systems.
