Smoking is a leading cause of premature mortality and preventable morbidity. Surveillance is most often based on self-reported data, but studies have shown that self-reports tend to underestimate smoking status. This study systematically reviewed the literature to measure the concordance
Sunyoung Park et al.

Although many peptides have therapeutic effects against diverse disease, their short half-lives in vivo hurdle their application as drug candidates. To extend the short elimination half-lives of therapeutic peptides, we developed a novel delivery platform for therapeutic peptides using an

Most biomarkers of exposure tend to have short half-lives. This includes cotinine, a metabolite of nicotine widely used to assess smoke exposure. Cotinine is thus unsuitable as a determinant of past exposure to cigarette smoke. We used bisulphite pyrosequencing of

Several epidemiological studies have shown that cigarette smoking might alter the incidence of Alzheimer's disease. However, inconsistent results have been reported regarding the risk of Alzheimer's disease among smokers. Previous studies in experimental animal models have reported that administration of
