BACKGROUND: Maternal smoking is currently a public health concern and has been associated with a number of complications in the offspring. E-cigarettes are gaining popularity as a 'safer' alternative to tobacco cigarettes during pregnancy, however, there are a limited number of studies to suggest that it is actually 'safe'. STUDY DESIGN: Balb/C female mice were exposed to ambient air (n = 8; Sham), or tobacco cigarette smoke (n = 8; SE) before gestation, during gestation and lactation. A third g...

: Maternal smoking during pregnancy is a significant risk factor of renal pathology in the offspring. E-cigarettes are perceived to be a safe option and are increasingly used by pregnant women either continuously during pregnancy or as a replacement for tobacco cigarettes. This study aimed to determine the effects of replacing tobacco cigarettes with e-cigarettes during pregnancy, and continuous e-cigarette use during pregnancy on the offspring's kidneys. Female Balb/c mice were exposed to eithe...

Abstract Background Maternal smoking can lead to perturbations in central metabolic regulators such as neuropeptide Y (NPY) and pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) signalling components in offspring. With the growing interest in e-cigarettes as a tobacco replacement, this short report assessed central metabolic regulation in offspring of mouse dams exposed to e-cigarettes. We examined the impact of continuous use of e-cigarettes, and e-cigarette replacement of tobacco cigarettes during pregnancy. Supple...

The aim of this present research was to determine whether the cardiovascular function has been affected by wearing compression garments during the recovery phase. Fourteen subjects (men, \text{n}=; women, \textbf{n}=; 24.7 \pm 4.5years, 166.0 \pm 7.6cm; 60.9 \pm 12.0kg) completed a running protocol on a treadmill. Each subject participated in two running experiments, using either compression garments (CGs) or non- compression garments (NCGs) during exercise and 2 hours recovering ...

The specific purpose of this present paper was to investigate whether the EEG activity has been affected by wearing whole body compression garments during a running test. Ten subjects (men, n=5; women, n=5; age: 24.11 ± 4.48 years; height: 163.56 ± 7.70 cm; chest: 87.78 ± 6.92 cm; weight: 58.67 ± 10.96 kg; BMI: 21.77 ± 2.63 kg.m-2) completed a running protocol on a treadmill. Each subject participated in two running trials, wearing either a compression garment (CG) or a non-compression garment (...

Electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) use is on the rise worldwide and is particularly attractive to young people and as a smoking substitute by pregnant woman. There is a perception in pregnant women and women of child-bearing age that the use of e-cigarettes (vaping) is safer than smoking tobacco cigarettes during pregnancy. However, there is little evidence to support this perception. Here, we examined the offspring from mouse dams that had been exposed during and after pregnancy to ambient air ...

Traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) is a detrimental condition that causes loss of sensory and motor function in an individual. Many complex secondary injury cascades occur after SCI and they offer great potential for therapeutic targeting. In this study, we investigated the response of endogenous neural progenitor cells, astrocytes, and microglia to a localized thoracic SCI throughout the neuroaxis. Twenty-five adult female Sprague-Dawley rats underwent mild-contusion thoracic SCI ( n = 9), sham...

E-cigarette usage is increasing, especially among the young, with both the general population and physicians perceiving them as a safe alternative to tobacco smoking. Worryingly, e-cigarettes are c...
