lead to a heightened risk of initiating smoking among adolescents (Source: File Photo) Related News Teenagers who try vape may be at double the risk for developing an addiction to smoking tobacco cigarettes according to a new study The findings showed that students in grades 7 to 12 who had tried an e-cigarette are 216 times more likely to be susceptible to cigarette smoking “Since e-cigarettes came on the market there has been a debate about whether their use may lead to cigarette smoking The answer among adolescents is yes” said Bruce Baskerville a researcher at the University of Waterloo in Ontario Canada E-cigarettes can contain nicotine but not many of the harmful substances produced by smoking tobacco such as tar or carbon monoxide These products work through an inhalation-activated system that heats a solution to create an inhalable aerosol often known as vapour Though E-cigarettes are touted as not very harmful but the study cements the fact they may lead to a greater chance of adolescents smoking “While preliminary evidence suggests that e-cigarettes contain fewer toxic chemicals than traditional cigarettes our findings suggest that a potential increase in harmful cigarette use may follow as e-cigarette use continues to rise among adolescent populations” Baskerville added The study was published in the journal Preventive Medicine “This study supports the restricting of e-cigarette access to minors which have been shown to have heightened risk to initiate smoking” Baskerville said However more research is needed on additional contributing risk factors as well as longitudinal data to evaluate the complex relationship between e-cigarette use and tobacco cigarette use in adolescence For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian

memory and ability to learn Inspired by such findings a startup company has now launched the first clinical trial in the United States to test the antiaging benefits of young blood in relatively healthy people But there’s a big caveat: It’s a pay-to-participate trial a type that has raised ethical concerns before most recently in the stem cell field The firm’s co-founder and trial principal investigator is a 31-year-old physician named Jesse Karmazin His company Ambrosia in Monterey California plans to charge participants $8000 for lab tests and a one-time treatment with young plasma The volunteers don’t have to be sick or even particularly aged—the trial is open to anyone 35 and older Karmazin notes that the study passed ethical review and argues that it’s not that unusual to charge people to participate in clinical trials To some ethicists and researchers however the trial raises red flags both for its cost to participants and for a design that they say is unlikely to deliver much science “There’s just no clinical evidence [that the treatment will be beneficial] and you’re basically abusing people’s trust and the public excitement around this” says neuroscientist Tony Wyss-Coray of Stanford University in Palo Alto California who led the 2014 young plasma study in mice Decades ago so-called parabiosis studies in which the circulation of old and young animals was connected so that their blood mingles suggested that young blood can rejuvenate aging mice A recent revival of the unusual approach has shown beneficial effects on muscle the heart brain and other organs and some researchers are scrutinizing young blood for specific factors that explain these observations The 2014 study however suggested that repeated injections of plasma from young animals were an easy alternative to parabiosis Wyss-Coray has since started a company Alkahest that with Stanford has launched a study of young plasma in 18 people with Alzheimer’s disease evaluating its safety and monitoring whether the treatment relieves any cognitive problems or other symptoms The company covers the participants’ costs Wyss-Coray expects results by the end of this year (Another trial at a research hospital in South Korea is examining whether cord blood or plasma can prevent frailty in the elderly) In Ambrosia’s trial 600 people age 35 and older would receive plasma from a donor under age 25 according to the description registered on ClinicalTrialsgov the federal website intended to track human trials and their results Karmazin says each person will receive roughly 15 liters over 2 days Before the infusions and 1 month after their blood will be tested for more than 100 biomarkers that may vary with age from hemoglobin level to inflammation markers The $8000 fee—not mentioned on ClinicalTrialsgov—will cover costs such as plasma from a blood bank lab tests the ethics review insurance and an administrative fee Karmazin says “It adds up fairly quickly” Kamarzin became interested in aging as an undergraduate In medical school at Stanford where he rotated through labs focused on stem cells and aging he took note of the young plasma mouse study and other parabiosis research Karmazin was also intrigued by the story of a Russian physician named Alexander Bogdanov who in the 1920s gave himself infusions of young human blood that he claimed boosted his energy level and bestowed a more youthful appearance There are “overwhelming data” suggesting that young plasma will be beneficial to people Karmazin says Last year Karmazin co-founded a company called xVitality Sciences that aimed to offer plasma treatments at clinics overseas The venture didn’t pan out—Karmazin left and the company is now apparently defunct Karmazin then started Ambrosia with Craig Wright a former chief scientific officer at a vaccine company who now runs a clinic in Monterey The company’s study which was reviewed by a commercial ethics board used by some for-profit stem cell clinics doesn’t need approval by the US Food and Drug Administration the pair says because plasma transfusions are a well-established standard treatment Karmazin says he and Wright have now heard from about 20 prospective participants and have enrolled three all elderly Wright will likely transfuse plasma into the first person in late August To bioethicist Leigh Turner at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities the study brings to mind a growing number of scientifically dubious trials registered in ClinicalTrialsgov by private for-profit stem cell clinics The presence of such trials in the database confers “undeserved legitimacy” he says The scientific design of the trial is drawing concerns as well “I don’t see how it will be in any way informative or convincing” says aging biologist Matt Kaeberlein of the University of Washington Seattle The participants won’t necessarily be elderly making it hard to see any effects and there are no well-accepted biomarkers of aging in blood he says “If you’re interested in science” Wyss-Coray adds why doesn’t such a large trial include a placebo arm Karmazin says he can’t expect people to pay knowing they may get a placebo With physiological measurements taken before and after treatment each person will serve as their own control he explains Doubts aside Ambrosia’s trial has already attracted attention from the investment company of billionaire Peter Thiel who is apparently interested in trying young plasma treatments himself Inc reported today Karmazin says he’s filling a void suggesting that most companies wouldn’t be interested in developing human plasma as an antiaging treatment “It’s this extremely abundant therapeutic that’s just sitting in blood banks” he insists *Correction 2 August 10:23 am: This story
