- In general, the findings of this study suggest that the concentrations of most trace metals extracted from cigarette smoke exceed the concentrations of trace metals extracted from ECIG-generated aerosol.
- Only Ni in the ECIG-generated aerosol was higher than control (smoke). The most probable source of Ni in this aerosol is the core assembly.
- From this study, it is unlikely that the ECIG-generated aerosol contains enough of the other trace metals to induce significant pathology.
