    Toxicity and carcinogenicity in the mucosa of the nasal passages in rodents has been produced by a variety of organic chemicals which are systemically distributed. In this review, 14 such chemicals or classes were identified that produced rodent nasal cytotoxicity, but not carcinogenicity, and...

    The objective of this study was to evaluate the histopathologic effects of systemic use of nicotine on the rat nasal mucosa. Twelve adult Sprague-Dawley rats weighing 180-220 g, were used as experimental animals. The rats were divided into Nicotine and control groups. The rats of Nicotine groups...

    Background: Cooling may induce nasal obstruction. In our previous study, we showed low temperature induced a rapid relaxation of isolated human nasal mucosa and it was independent of vasoconstriction. The aim of this study was to elucidate the mechanism responsible for such findings. Methods:...

    Background: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of low temperature on basal tension in isolated hypertrophic human nasal mucosa with or without α1-agonist stimulation. Methods: A tissue bath for isolated nasal mucosa was used. Tension in strips of human turbinate mucosa that...

    Abstract Nicotine produces interoceptive stimulus effects in humans, which may be critical in understanding tobacco use. It has not yet clearly been demonstrated that discrimination of nicotine, or any drug, in humans is due to its central effects. We compared effects of mecamylamine (10 mg PO),...
