Highlights
• Aerosols of a heat-not-burn tobacco product elicited lower impacts compared with smoke of 3R4F reference cigarettes.
• Systems toxicology revealed changes at the cellular–molecular levels not otherwise apparent from morphological features.
• The reduced impact of heated tobacco aerosols on small airway was similar than that on nasal epithelial cultures.

The objectives of this study included to demonstrate robustness and reproducibility of systems biology data obtained from an organotypic in vitro nasal culture model for cigarette smoke and aerosol exposure assessment. Cellular stress and pro-inflammatory responses were investigated on the primary nasal epithelial cells of a non-smoker.

The objective of this study was to assess and compare the effects of repeated exposures to the aerosol of CHTP1.2 with cigarette smoke generated from reference cigarettes (3R4F) on human gingival organotypic epithelial cultures. The results were evaluated in using Adenylate Kinase (AK)-based cytotoxicity assay, histological analysis, pro-inflammatory mediators and Microarray data processing and analysis.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate oxidative stress induced by whole cigarette smoke based on the air-liquid interface exposure system. The cytotoxicity of whole smoke were measured by MTT and NRU assays, and several intracellular and extracellular oxidative stress biomarkers such as GSH and GSSG, MDA, HNE, EC-SOD and 8-OHdG were investigated in A549 and BEAS–2B cells.
