Prefatory Study to Explore Changes in Nasal Mucociliary Clearance and to Standardize Nasal Scraping Procedure

2017-03-22 21:53:21 | BioPortfolio


This study intends to evaluate the nasal mucociliary clearance (NMC) by determining the value obtained for saccharin transit time (STT) test over the course of 12 hours following a single cigarette use in smokers, to compare it relative to never smokers, and to examine the relationship between plasma nicotine levels and STT value in smokers and never smokers. Safety will also be monitored during the study.

The planned maximum study duration for a single study participant from Screening through completion of study will be 33 days.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Persons with a history or habit of SMOKING.


Electronic devices that are designed to provide NICOTINE in the form of an inhaled aerosol. They typically are made in the shape of CIGARETTES in order to simulate the experience of CIGARETTE SMOKING.

A diffuse parenchymal lung disease caused by accumulation of inhaled CARBON or coal dust. The disease can progress from asymptomatic anthracosis to massive lung fibrosis. This lung lesion usually occurs in coal miners, but can be seen in urban dwellers and tobacco smokers.

A cytochrome P-450 monooxygenase that can be induced by polycyclic aromatic xenobiotics in the liver of human and several animal species. This enzyme is of significant clinical interest due to the large number of drug interactions associated with its induction and its metabolism of THEOPHYLLINE. Caffeine is considered to be a model substrate for this enzyme. CYP1A2 activity can also be increased by environmental factors such as cigarette smoking, charbroiled meat, cruciferous vegetables, and a number of drugs including phenytoin, phenobarbital, and omeprazole.
