Oncotarget Astounding Research Findings for Flavored E-cigarettes
Oncotarget is a multipurpose journal which is free to access. It publishes papers on a weekly basis which are publishable upon demand. Oncotarget aims to have scientific journals available for all to increase the impact of research through insightful reviews, allow exceptional discoveries to be widely shared, eliminate barriers between specialists and link different fields of biomedical science.The journal also focuses on the pathological basis of all cancers, target for therapy and treatment protocols to improve management of cancer patients. The journal looks at the effect of the directorate programs and new therapeutic agents and procedures on patient perspectives such as the quality of life, adherence, and satisfaction. The journal explores future therapies, their usage regarding uptake and their acceptance by patients.Oncortaget began publishing in 2010 by impact journals.
Its editors are Mikhail Blagosklonny and Andrei V. Gudkov. Jeffrey Beal reviewed it and included the journal to his list potential, possible or probable predatory scholarly open access journals.The journal found out the E-cigarettes flavoring BLU classic tobacco and that with zero nicotine showed differential effects on exposure to Gingival cells. The flavored cigarettes showed inflammatory symptoms due to oxidative stress as compared to the traditional tobacco which did not affect. The research was carried out on a human 3D model of the human Epigingival tissues exposed to e-cigarettes with serious smoking as the control. They were exposed to a vapor for 15 minutes using a modified system without a modified culture media. The tissues from Epigingival inserted in the culture incubated for 24 hours.
The tissues from the vapored medium showed an increasing trend as compared to those exposed to traditional tobacco.According to the research the e-cigarettes, flavoring causes increased oxidative or carbonyl stress which resulted in the inflammatory of the periodontal ligaments. Typical cigarette smoke causes a deleterious effect on oral and periodontal health. In the periodontal ligaments, Epithelial cells are the most common and thus their relevance in the culture used in the experiment. There is a connection between tooth loss and smoking cigarettes, destruction of the connective tissues and matrix leading to increased risk of periodontitis. The flavored E-cigarettes increase this rate of destructiveness however currently there is no written detailed research on the abstract.
