    Objective: Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in cigarette smoke induce cytochrome P450(CYP)1A2, which is involved in the hepatic metabolism of melatonin (MT). This suggests that habitual smokers may have low serum MT levels during smoking compared with a non-smoking period. We decided to...

    The article cites a study in which male rats were used to establish an animal model which simulated the changes in antipyrine elimination observed in human smokers. In adult male rats exposed to cigarette smoke, antipyrine elimination measured in individual intact animals was enhanced to the...
