  1. Cigarette yields of tar and nicotine and markers of exposure to tobacco smoke.

    Article - En anglais

    Although cigarette yields of tar and nicotine have been declining since the early 1970s, little information is available for the general population on the consequences of their use on exposure to tobacco combustion products.

    In a population-based sample of 298 smokers, the majority of whom were Hispanic, we examined the relationships between yields of cigarettes currently smoked and levels of salivary cotinine and end-expired carbon monoxide.

    Spearman correlation coefficients between the current number of cigarettes smoked and cotinine (r=052) or carbon monoxide (r=0.51) were higher than correlations between the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) nicotine data and these same markers, 0.12 and 0.05, respectively.
