The posterior nasal nerve plays an important role on cardiopulmonary reflexes to nasal application of capsaicin, distilled water and l-menthol in anesthetized dogs. (1/240)

The sensory innervation of the cardiopulmonary reflexes to nasal application of capsaicin (CAPS), distilled water (DW) and l-menthol (LM) was studied in anesthetized dogs breathing through tracheostomy. A marked cardiopulmonary reflex was observed by CAPS and DW into the nasal cavity, while a prolongation of expiration was induced by LM. All these reflexes were significantly decreased by bilateral section of the posterior nasal nerve (PNN) and completely abolished by topical nasal anesthesia with lidocaine. Responses of the whole nerve activity of the PNN to these substances corresponded to the magnitude of the reflexes. These results indicate that PNN afferents play an important role on the reflex elicitation of the noxious, water and cold stimuli from the nasal cavity.  (+info)

Metabolism of (R)-(+)-pulegone and (R)-(+)-menthofuran by human liver cytochrome P-450s: evidence for formation of a furan epoxide. (2/240)

(R)-(+)-Pulegone, a monoterpene constituent of pennyroyal oil, is a hepatotoxin that has been used in folklore medicine as an abortifacient despite its potential lethal effects. Pulegone is metabolized by human liver cytochrome P-450s to menthofuran, a proximate hepatotoxic metabolite of pulegone. Expressed human liver cytochrome (CYP) P-450s (1A2, 2A6, 2C9, 2C19, 2D6, 2E1, and 3A4) were tested for their ability to catalyze the oxidations of pulegone and menthofuran. Expressed CYP2E1, CYP1A2, and CYP2C19 oxidized pulegone to menthofuran, with respective Km and Vmax values of 29 microM and 8.4 nmol/min/nmol P-450 for CYP2E1, 94 microM and 2.4 nmol/min/nmol P-450 for CYP1A2, and 31 microM and 1.5 nmol/min/nmol P-450 for CYP2C19. The human liver P-450s involved in the metabolism of menthofuran are the same as pulegone except for the addition of CYP2A6. These P-450s were found to oxidize menthofuran to a newly identified metabolite, 2-hydroxymenthofuran, which is an intermediate in the formation of the known metabolites mintlactone and isomintlactone. Based on studies with 18O2 and H218O, 2-hydroxymenthofuran arises predominantly from a dihydrodiol formed from a furan epoxide. CYP2E1, CYP1A2, and CYP2C19 oxidized menthofuran with respective Km and Vmax values of 33 microM and 0.43 nmol/min/nmol P-450 for CYP2E1, 57 microM and 0.29 nmol/min/nmol P-450 for CYP1A2, and 62 microM and 0.26 nmol/min/nmol P-450 for CYP2C19.  (+info)

Developmental regulation of monoterpene biosynthesis in the glandular trichomes of peppermint. (3/240)

Monoterpene production in peppermint (Mentha x piperita L.) glandular trichomes is determined by the rate of biosynthesis, as determined by (14)CO(2) incorporation, and is restricted to leaves 12 to 20 d of age. Using oil glands isolated from peppermint leaves of different ages, in vitro assay of the eight sequential enzymes responsible for the biosynthesis of the principal monoterpene (-)-menthol indicated that all but one biosynthetic enzyme had a very similar developmental profile. Activities were highest in leaves 12 to 20 d of age, with a sharp peak centered at 15 d. The exception, (-)-menthone reductase, the last enzyme of the pathway, exhibited a later peak of activity, which was centered at approximately 21 d. The correlation between in vitro enzyme activity and the rate of biosynthesis measured in vivo suggests that monoterpene formation is controlled mainly by the coordinately regulated activity of the relevant biosynthetic enzymes. Developmental immunoblotting of limonene synthase, which catalyzes the committed step of the pathway, demonstrated a direct correlation between enzyme activity and enzyme protein, suggesting that the dynamic time course for the remaining pathway enzyme activities also reflects the corresponding protein levels. RNA-blot analyses indicated that the genes encoding enzymes of the early pathway steps are transcriptionally activated in a coordinated fashion, with a time course superimpossible with activity measurements and immunoblot data. These results demonstrating coincidental temporal changes in enzyme activities, enzyme protein level, and steady-state transcript abundances indicate that most of the monoterpene biosynthetic enzymes in peppermint are developmentally regulated at the level of gene expression.  (+info)

Amplification of odor-induced Ca(2+) transients by store-operated Ca(2+) release and its role in olfactory signal transduction. (4/240)

A critical role of Ca(2+) in vertebrate olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) is to couple odor-induced excitation to intracellular feedback pathways that are responsible for the regulation of the sensitivity of the sense of smell, but the role of intracellular Ca(2+) stores in this process remains unclear. Using confocal Ca(2+) imaging and perforated patch recording, we show that salamander ORNs contain a releasable pool of Ca(2+) that can be discharged at rest by the SERCA inhibitor thapsigargin and the ryanodine receptor agonist caffeine. The Ca(2+) stores are spatially restricted; emptying produces compartmentalized Ca(2+) release and capacitative-like Ca(2+) entry in the dendrite and soma but not in the cilia, the site of odor transduction. We deplete the stores to show that odor stimulation causes store-dependent Ca(2+) mobilization. This odor-induced Ca(2+) release does not seem to be necessary for generation of an immediate electrophysiological response, nor does it contribute significantly to the Ca(2+) transients in the olfactory cilia. Rather, it is important for amplifying the magnitude and duration of Ca(2+) transients in the dendrite and soma and is thus necessary for the spread of an odor-induced Ca(2+) wave from the cilia to the soma. We show that this amplification process depends on Ca(2+)-induced Ca(2+) release. The results indicate that stimulation of ORNs with odorants can produce Ca(2+) mobilization from intracellular stores without an immediate effect on the receptor potential. Odor-induced, store-dependent Ca(2+) mobilization may be part of a feedback pathway by which information is transferred from the distal dendrite of an ORN to its soma.  (+info)

'Microsmatic' primates revisited: olfactory sensitivity in the squirrel monkey. (5/240)

Using a conditioning paradigm, the olfactory sensitivity of three squirrel monkeys to nine odorants representing different chemical classes as well as members of a homologous series of substances was investigated. The animals significantly discriminated dilutions as low as 1:10,000 n-propionic acid, 1:30,000 n-butanoic acid and n-pentanoic acid, 1:100,000 n-hexanoic acid, 1:1Mio n-heptanoic acid, 1:30, 000 1-pentanol, 1:300,000 1,8-cineole, 1:1Mio n-heptanal and 1:30Mio amyl acetate from the near-odorless solvent, with single individuals scoring even slightly better. The results showed (i) the squirrel monkey to have an unexpectedly high olfactory sensitivity, which for some substances matches or even is better than that of species such as the rat or the dog, and (ii) a significant negative correlation between perceptibility in terms of olfactory detection thresholds and carbon chain length of carboxylic acids. These findings support the assumptions that olfaction may play a significant and hitherto underestimated role in the regulation of primate behavior, and that the concept of primates as primarily visual and 'microsmatic' animals needs to be revised.  (+info)

Purification and characterization of a Baeyer-Villiger mono-oxygenase from Rhodococcus erythropolis DCL14 involved in three different monocyclic monoterpene degradation pathways. (6/240)

A Baeyer-Villiger mono-oxygenase (BVMO), catalysing the NADPH- and oxygen-dependent oxidation of the monocyclic monoterpene ketones 1-hydroxy-2-oxolimonene, dihydrocarvone and menthone, was purified to homogeneity from Rhodococcus erythropolis DCL14. Monocyclic monoterpene ketone mono-oxygenase (MMKMO) is a monomeric enzyme of molecular mass 60 kDa. It contains 1 mol of FAD/monomer as the prosthetic group. The N-terminal amino acid sequence showed homology with many other NADPH-dependent and FAD-containing (Type 1) BVMOs. Maximal enzyme activity was measured at pH 9 and 35 degrees C. MMKMO has a broad substrate specificity, catalysing the lactonization of a large number of monocyclic monoterpene ketones and substituted cyclohexanones. The natural substrates 1-hydroxy-2-oxolimonene, dihydrocarvone and menthone were converted stoichiometrically into 3-isopropenyl-6-oxoheptanoate (the spontaneous rearrangement product of the lactone formed by MMKMO), 4-isopropenyl-7-methyl-2-oxo-oxepanone and 7-isopropyl-4-methyl-2-oxo-oxepanone respectively. The MMKMO-catalysed conversion of iso-dihydrocarvone showed an opposite regioselectivity to that of dihydrocarvone; in this case, 6-isopropenyl-3-methyl-2-oxo-oxepanone was formed as the product. MMKMO converted all enantiomers of the natural substrates with almost equal efficiency. MMKMO is involved in the conversion of the monocyclic monoterpene ketone intermediates formed in the degradation pathways of all stereoisomers of three different monocyclic monoterpenes, i.e. limonene, (dihydro)carveol and menthol.  (+info)

Role of C-5 chiral center in R-(+)-pulegone-mediated hepatotoxicity: metabolic disposition and toxicity of 5, 5-dimethyl-2-(1-Methylethylidene)-cyclohexanone in rats. (7/240)

Metabolic disposition of 5, 5-dimethyl-2-(1-methylethylidene)-cyclohexanone (I) was examined in rats. Compound (I) was administered orally (250 mg/kg of body weight/day) to rats for 5 days. The following urinary metabolites were isolated and identified: 4,5,6,7-tetrahydro-3,6, 6-trimethylbenzofuran (III), 3,3-dimethylcyclohexanone (VI), 5, 5-dimethyl-3-hydroxy-2-(1-methylethylidene)-cyclohexanone (X), 5, 5-dimethyl-2-(1-hydroxymethylethyl)-cyclohexanone (IX), 3-hydroxy-5-hydroxymethyl-5-methyl-2-(1-methylethylidene)-cyclo hexano ne (XI), 5,6-dihydro-3,6,6-trimethyl-2(4H)-benzofuranone (VIII), and 5,5-dimethyl-3-hydroxy-2-(1-carboxy ethylidene)-cyclohexanone (XIII). Incubation of compound (I) with phenobarbital (PB)-induced rat liver microsomes in the presence of NADPH resulted in the formation of a metabolite, tentatively identified as a furanoterpene (III) based on proton magnetic resonance, gas chromatography, and gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy analyses. The formation of III was inhibited to a significant extent by carbon monoxide, metyrapone, SKF 525-A, and cytochrome c, suggesting the participation of PB-induced microsomal cytochrome P-450 system in the conversion of I to III. Compound I gave type I spectral change in the PB-induced liver microsomes and the dissociation constant (Ks) for I was 38.5 microM. Intraperitoneal administration of a single dose (250 mg/kg) of I to rats resulted in 26, 23, and 41% decreases in the levels of cytochrome P-450, glucose-6-phosphatase, and aminopyrine N-demethylase, respectively, at the end of 24 h. During this period, a 11-fold increase in serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase level was also observed. However, a decrease in the level of cytochrome P-450 and glucose-6-phosphatase, and an increase in serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase values were comparatively more pronounced when R-(+)-pulegone (250 mg/kg) or CCl(4) (0.6 ml/kg) was administered to rats. Pretreatment of rats with PB potentiated the hepatotoxicity caused by I, whereas pretreatment with 3-methylcholanthrene protected from it. This suggests that PB-induced cytochrome P-450-catalyzed reactive metabolites may be responsible for the toxic effects caused by I.  (+info)

Inhibition of plant asparagine synthetase by monoterpene cineoles. (8/240)

Asparagine (Asn) synthetase (AS) is the key enzyme in Asn biosynthesis and plays an important role in nitrogen mobilization. Despite its important physiological function, little research has been done documenting inhibitors of plant AS. Plant growth inhibition caused by the natural monoterpene 1,4-cineole and its structurally related herbicide cinmethylin was reversed 65% and 55%, respectively, by providing 100 microM Asn exogenously. Reversion of the phytotoxic effect was dependent on the concentration of Asn. The presence of either 1,4-cineole or cinmethylin stimulated root uptake of [(14)C]Asn by lettuce (Lactuca sativa) seedlings. Although the physiological responses suggested that both compounds affected Asn biosynthesis, biochemical analysis of AS activity showed that the natural monoterpene was a potent inhibitor (I(50) = approximately 0. 5 microM) of the enzyme, whereas the commercial product was not inhibitory up to levels of 10 mM. Analysis of the putative metabolite, 2-hydroxy-1,4-cineole, showed that the cis-enantiomer was much more active than the trans-enantiomer, suggesting that the hydroxyl group was involved in the specific ligand/active site interaction. This is the first report that AS is a suitable herbicide target site, and that cinmethylin is apparently a proherbicide that requires metabolic bioactivation via cleavage of the benzyl-ether side chain.  (+info)

Findings from this study highlight five key points: first, although overall smoking prevalence has decreased, the prevalence of menthol cigarette use among past 30-day cigarette smokers increased significantly from 35% in 2008-2010 to 39% in 2012-2014. Second, youth smokers remain the most likely group to use menthol cigarettes compared to all other age groups and there were significant increases in menthol cigarette use among adults ages 18-25, 26-34 and 35-49 between the two time periods. Third, while menthol cigarette prevalence has remained constant among black smokers, it has increased in white, Asian and Hispanic smokers. Fourth, dramatic reductions in youth and adult cigarette smoking in recent years have resulted in decreases in menthol cigarette prevalence in youth and young adults, but those declines have not occurred as rapidly as in non-menthol cigarettes. Menthol cigarette prevalence now exceeds non-menthol cigarette prevalence in youth and young adult smokers. Finally, among past ...

FDA Advisory Panel Concludes that Menthol Cigarettes are No More Hazardous, But That They Enhance Smoking Initiation By Masking Harshness of Tobacco The FDAs Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee (TPSAC) has concluded in a draft report that while menthol cigarettes are no more hazardous than non-menthol cigarettes, they may contribute to smoking initiation by masking the harshness of tobacco. The draft report on menthol is available on the TPSAC website at http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/CommitteesMeetingMaterials/TobaccoProductsScientificAdvisoryCommittee/ucm244877.htm. While the committee concluded that there is insufficient evidence that menthol cigarette smokers inhale more smoke, are exposed to higher levels of nicotine and other toxins, or face a different risk of tobacco-caused diseases than smokers of non-menthol cigarettes, it did conclude that there is sufficient evidence that menthol may enhance the smoking initiation and maintenance process by masking the harsh taste ...
The FDA is considering banning menthol cigarettes, or other regulatory options, he says. This research provides an important view of the trends and patterns of menthol use in the nation as a whole. The FDA will consider these findings and findings from multiple other studies as it goes forward.. Giovino is particularly alarmed that the findings show youth are heavy consumers of mentholated cigarettes and the use of menthols is specifically associated with being younger, female and of non-white ethnicity.. This finding indicates that mentholated cigarettes are a starter product for kids in part because menthol makes it easier to inhale for beginners, says Giovino. Simply stated, menthol sweetens the poison, making it easier to smoke. Young people often think menthol cigarettes are safer, in part because they feel less harsh.. When I was growing up, one of my older friends said he didnt think that menthol cigarette smoking was that dangerous because he was told that they were good for you ...
Comprehensive Report Shows African Americans and Young Adults. Disproportionately Affected by Menthol Cigarette Use. Washington, DC - A special supplemental issue to the journal Addiction was released today focusing on menthol flavored cigarettes (menthols) and the significant harm associated with them. This Menthol Special Journal Issue, funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), includes 11 new studies focusing on the prevalence of menthol flavored cigarette use, cessation success rates among menthol cigarette users and factors that might influence smoking and quitting menthols. Key findings from the special supplement include data confirming disproportionately higher rates of menthol cigarette smoking among African Americans and young adults; and menthol smokers, particularly African Americans, are also less successful when they try to quit. Young adult non-daily smokers who smoke menthols demonstrate greater signs of nicotine dependence than those who smoke non-menthols.. This special ...

In regression models that adjusted for daily cigarette intake, no significant differences were observed in the concentration of these biomarkers by menthol status in both races. There was no ...
The ban on the sale of menthol cigarettes is a gross restriction on consumer choice that will do nothing to stop children smoking says Forest.. Responding to claims by the anti-smoking group Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) that the ban on child-friendly menthol cigarettes is long overdue, Forest said there is no evidence that banning menthol cigarettes will stop children smoking.. Director Simon Clark said:. The ban on menthol cigarettes is a gross restriction on consumer choice that will do nothing to stop children smoking.. Evidence from Canada, where menthol cigarettes were first banned in 2015, suggests that the ban had no overall impact on youth smoking rates because younger smokers simply switched to non-menthol cigarettes. [1]. Criticising the ban and the impact on adult consumers, Clark added:. Many adults have smoked menthol-flavoured cigarettes for decades. This week that small pleasure will be taken away from them and the only people who will benefit are the criminals who ...

These sponsorships, which included handing out cigarettes for free, were simply part of Big Tobaccos master plan to get and keep African Americans hooked on menthol cigarettes. It was predatory targeting and customer recruitment all dressed up as support for the Black community. Unfortunately, it worked, and nearly 70% of adult African American smokers in California smoke menthol cigarettes, the highest rate of any group. 1. Menthol has been a recruitment tool for far too long. Big Tobacco has added menthol flavoring to cigarettes for nearly a century to mask tobaccos harsh taste, making the toxic smoke easier to inhale.2 But that ease comes with a price. The smoothness of menthol allows smokers to inhale more deeply, so harmful particles can settle lower in the lungs.3 Menthol cigarettes are also harder to stop - people who use menthol cigarettes have a harder time quitting. 4 5. The year 2009 could have been the end of menthol flavored cigarettes. That year the federal Tobacco Control Act ...
Unlike a prior FDA report that gave the administration cause to ban light and candy-flavored cigarettes, the latest report does not call for new regulations. It does say, however, that banning menthols would improve the nations overall health and reduce costs from tobacco-related illnesses. It also cites figures showing youths gravitating toward menthol cigarettes at an alarming rate; and especially minority youths, who seem to prefer menthol cigarettes to other tobacco blends. The study found that 80 percent of black children between the ages of 12-17 who smoke cigarettes were smoking menthols. For Latino smokers of the same age, the FDA said that over 50 percent smoke menthols. The report also showed that smoking cigarettes is the number one cause of preventable death in the U.S. today, but it did not specify how menthols carry a heavier risk than other tobacco. It also failed to show that trying a menthol can pose a greater threat of addiction. The tobacco industry had objected to the ...
July 24, 2013 10:41:42 AM. - RICHMOND, Va. -- A Food and Drug Administration review concludes that menthol cigarettes likely pose a greater public health risk than regular cigarettes but does not make a recommendation on whether to limit or ban the minty smokes -- one of the few growth sectors of the shrinking cigarette business. The federal agency released the independent review on Tuesday and is seeking input from the health community, the tobacco industry and others on possible restrictions on the mint-flavored cigarettes. The FDA evaluation concluded that there is little evidence to suggest that menthol cigarettes are more or less toxic or contribute to more disease risk to smokers than regular cigarettes. However, there is adequate data to suggest that menthol use is likely associated with increased smoking initiation by younger people and that menthol smokers have a harder time quitting, the review said. Theres also evidence indicating that menthols cooling properties can reduce the ...
The FDA published preliminary results from a study it conducted that suggests menthol cigarettes pose a public health risk above that seen with non-menthol cigarettes. The report found that while menthol cigarettes, which account for about a quarter of all cigarettes sold in the United States, are no more or less toxic than regular cigarettes, menthols cooling and anesthetic properties can reduce the harshness of cigarette smoke, increasing their appeal to new smokers. The tobacco industry has previously acknowledged the inherent risks of all tobacco products, the FDA said, but the industry has raised the possibility of a black market in menthol cigarettes emerging should a ban be imposed. The FDAs move comes during a trade dispute in which Indonesia has charged that the United States illegally allowed menthol cigarettes to remain on the market while banning the import of clove-flavored cigarettes from Indonesia. The United States has been clear that it would comply with the WTO findings in a
Whats more, smokers who choose menthol cigarettes also smoked fewer cigarettes per day than those who smoked non-menthol cigarettes and quit smoking was similar for both menthol and non-menthol.

Menthol cigarette use is higher among persons who started smoking in the past year (44.6 percent) than among longer-term smokers (31.8 percent) according to a new study by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). In addition, among persons who smoked in the past month, the percentage using menthol cigarettes increased from 31.0 percent in 2004 to 33.9 percent in 2008. This increase was most pronounced among adolescent smokers aged 12 to 17 (up from 43.5 percent to 47.7 percent), and young adult smokers aged 18 to 25 (up from 34.1 percent to 40.8 percent ...

As problematic as that would be for Altria, a ban wont be nearly as bad for it as it will be for British American Tobacco (NYSE:BTI), which, after acquiring Reynolds American in a $47 billion merger earlier this year, owns the most popular menthol cigarette on the market, Newport, which alone accounted for 44% of Reynolds total domestic cigarette shipment volume.. BAT also has the third most popular menthol cigarette on the market, Camel, which has an estimated 12% share, meaning together with Newports one-third menthol, it has a nearly 50% share of the menthol market. Therefore, it stands to lose as many as 5 million smokers from a ban, but in Reynolds last annual report before being bought by BAT, it estimated that half of its $12.5 billion in revenues came from menthol cigarettes. Thats obviously a substantial loss of revenue for BAT. ...

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration revealed last Tuesday that menthol-flavored cigarettes pose greater damaging effects to public health, because they are more addictive than regular cigarettes.. The findings were published by the FDA, menthol cigarettes pose a public health risk above that seen with non-menthol cigarettes. The study explains that menthol-flavored cigarettes are not more harmful than regular ones, in terms of toxicity, however, menthol´s freshness and anesthetic properties tend to reduce the unpleasant flavor of tobacco; as result, the number of young smokers increases. In the U.S., menthol-flavored cigarettes account for about a quarter of the total market.. Also, the FDA explained, Menthol smokers show greater signs of nicotine dependence and are less likely to successfully quit smoking.. Menthol-flavored cigarettes are consumed, mostly, by African Americans and teenagers. Nonetheless, the FDA didn´t proposed any specific restriction or ban on the subject for ...
A menthol cigarette is still a cigarette-complete with all the chemicals and addiction risk that youll find with any other tobacco product. Flavoring isnt going to make it any safer. In fact, research shows that menthol cigarettes may be more addictive than nonmenthol cigarettes, which could make quitting even harder.
If you are a smoker who has already given some serious thought to cutting down or quitting altogether then you may have already switched to menthol cigarettes as a means of smoking without doing yourself so much harm. This is very admirable, but switching from menthols to disposable e-cigs is an even better way to get the nicotine hit you crave while avoiding all the damage tobacco - even from menthol cigarettes - can do to your body.. The problem for people who are already used to smoking menthols is that most of the disposable e-cigs and starter packs for refillable electronic cigarettes only come with tobacco flavor e-liquids. With the refillable devices, you can always buy menthol cartons to vaporize, but if you want the convenience and easy access of disposable e-cigs then your menthol choices may be a bit more limited.. There are plenty of major brands that have spotted this gap in the market, however, and have already started producing menthol products that are going down very well in ...

Menthol is a cooling compound derived from mint leaves and is extensively used as a flavoring chemical. Menthol activates transient receptor potential melastatin 8 (TRPM8), an ion channel also activated by cold, voltage and phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2). Here we investigated the mechanism by which menthol activates mouse TRPM8. Using a new high-throughput approach, we screened a random mutant library consisting of approximately 14,000 individual TRPM8 mutants for clones that are affected in their response to menthol while retaining channel function. We identified determinants of menthol sensitivity in two regions: putative transmembrane segment 2 (S2) and the C-terminal TRP domain. Analysis of these mutants indicated that activation by menthol involves a gating mechanism distinct and separable from gating by cold, voltage or PIP2. Notably, TRP domain mutations mainly attenuated menthol efficacy, suggesting that this domain influences events downstream of initial binding. In ...

In this issue, Caraballo and colleagues add to the growing body of literature concerning the biomarkers of toxicity of menthol added to cigarettes (1). Even laboratory-based exposure studies (carbon monoxide, cotinine) have had mixed results, with some studies reporting decreased values, some increased, and some no difference when menthol cigarettes (compared with nonmenthol cigarettes) are smoked (2-9). These results, and the generally null results reported following examination for increased toxicity of menthol cigarettes (10-20) are understandable for 2 reasons. First, all previous studies (both epidemiologic and laboratory-based) that have attempted to determine whether mentholation of cigarettes produces additional harm have utilized commercial menthol and nonmenthol brands. Those studies have been obfuscated by the many other ways that commercial cigarettes differ other than just menthol concentration. For policy makers to judge whether mentholation itself results in additional abuse ...

Menthol conceals the taste of tobacco, which in turn facilitates starting smoking. It has been proven that there is a particularly high hazard potential from menthol cigarettes for young people who are frequently still in the entry or familiarisation stages. Subsequently, menthol cigarettes may no longer be sold in the EU from 20 May 2020 onwards. Moreover, any use of menthol as an additive in cigarettes and smoking tobacco is prohibited in Germany from 20 May onwards. Menthol triggers a cold sensation, making it easier for tobacco smoke, which is prickly and irritates the throat, to be inhaled. The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment ...

Fifty-two Holstein steers (573 +/- 9.92 kg BW) were used to determine if oral administration of crystalline menthol would induce changes in endogenous secretions of IGF-1 and circulating concentrations of glucose, lactate, and plasma urea nitrogen (PUN). Steers were blocked by BW and assigned within block to treatment. Treatments consisted of 0, 0.003, 0.03, or 0.3% crystalline menthol (DM basis) added to the diet. Animals were housed in individual, partially covered pens equipped with feed bunks and automatic water fountains. On d 1 of the experiment, blood samples were obtained via jugular venipuncture at 0, 6, 12, 18, and 24 h after feeding. Treatment administration commenced on d 2, and blood samples were again drawn at 0, 6, 12, 18, and 24 h after feeding. This blood-sampling schedule was repeated on d 9, 16, 23, and 30. Plasma was analyzed for PUN, glucose, and lactate concentrations. Serum was used to analyze IGF-1 concentration. Body weights were measured on d 1, 9, 16, 23, and 30. To ...
Growing up in Farmersville, Texas, Lincoln Mondy, who is biracial, noticed something strange about the smokers in his family. His father, and the other black smokers, almost exclusively smoked menthol cigarettes, while his white mother, and her relatives who smoked, used only non-menthol products.. Years later, while interning with Truth Initiative® in college, Mondy learned that his familys smoking behaviors were no coincidence. Menthol cigarettes, which are easier to smoke and harder to quit, have been strategically marketed to appeal to the African-American community for decades. Today, nearly 90 percent of all African-American smokers use menthol cigarettes, and 47,000 African-Americans die from smoking-related diseases each year.. This realization inspired Mondy to participate in the 2015-16 Truth Initiative Youth Activism Fellowship and create Black lives / Black Lungs, a documentary that explores the history, marketing tactics and impact of the tobacco industry targeting ...

Derived from peppermint, menthol can have the same sensitizing effect as peppermint on skin.

During the month of September, the Chicago Board of Health has scheduled four Town Hall meetings to obtain public input on the effects of flavored tobacco products, including menthol cigarettes, on the public health. The purpose of the Town Hall meetings will be to gather information on flavored tobacco products and then draft policy recommendations to be submitted to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago City Council Committee on Health and Environmental Protection.. The Chicago Board of Health has released the accompanying Resolution on Menthol-Flavored Cigarettes which includes a number of Whereas clauses that focus on the use of flavored tobacco products, including menthol flavored cigarettes. Specifically, the resolution states that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is immediately calling on the Chicago Board of Health to help explore local policy options for curbing their use, especially among kids.. The resolution was issued by the Chicago Board of Health in response to the recent FDA ...
The major findings in this study are: (1) TRPM8 is also localized in SR and regulates mitochondrial Ca2+ concentration and mitochondrial respiratory function in VSMCs; (2) the activation of TRPM8 by menthol attenuates Ang II-induced Ca2+ influx and mitochondrial dysfunction-induced ROS generation; (3) ROS‐mediated RhoA/Rho kinase pathway activation is blunted by menthol treatment in a TRPM8‐dependent manner in vitro and in vivo; and (4) chronic dietary menthol attenuates vascular dysfunction and hypertension in cold‐ or Ang II-treated WT but not Trpm8−/− mice. These results suggest that the antihypertensive effect of TRPM8 activation by menthol is associated with blunted Ca2+ overload-induced mitochondrial dysfunction and excessive ROS production in the vasculature, especially in CIH.. Proper function of SR and mitochondria is crucial for cellular homeostasis, and dysfunction at either site links to cardiovascular diseases.34 Ca2+ is the most prominent signaling factor that transfers ...

Environmental cold is a nonmodifiable hypertension risk factor. Transient receptor potential melastatin subtype 8 (TRPM8) is a cold-sensing cation channel that can be activated by menthol, a compound with a naturally cold sensation in mint. Little is known about the effect of TRPM8 activation on vascular function and blood pressure. Here, we report that TRPM8 is abundantly expressed in the vasculature. TRPM8 activation by menthol attenuated vasoconstriction via RhoA/Rho kinase pathway inhibition in wild-type mice, but the effect was absent in TRPM8(-/-) mice. Chronic dietary menthol blunted mesenteric arterial constriction and lowered blood pressure in genetic hypertensive rats via inhibition of RhoA/Rho kinase expression and activity in the vivo study. TRPM8 effect was associated with inhibition of intracellular calcium release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum, RhoA/Rho kinase activity, and sustained arterial contraction in the vitro study. Importantly, 8-week chronic menthol capsule treatment ...
Gypsy Cold Care® is a comforting herbal tea indicated for temporary relief from stuffy nose and sinus passages. The active ingredient, menthol from peppermint leaf, helps decongest sinus passages and restores freer breathing through the nose. Gypsy Cold Care® is formulated to act as a nasal decongestant based on the traditional use of peppermint leaf to temporarily relieve nasal congestion due to the common cold. The herbs in this blend have a long history of human use stemming from traditional Greco-European herbal medicine. Today, peppermint is a widely used ingredient in food and medicine. Gypsy Cold Cares nasal decongestant action is attributed to its natural menthol content. Peppermint leaf contains volatile oils composed primarily of menthol, its main active constituent. Menthol acts as a secretolytic, breaking down secretions in the bronchi, and as a decongestant in the nose. Oral ingestion and inhalation of menthol helps to relieve nasal and chest congestion.

This area of research has recently received considerable attention with the identification and cloning of the Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) family of proteins. The transduction of temperature in cold receptors is mediated in part by the TRPM8 channel. This channel passes a mixed inward cationic (predominantly carried by Na+ ions although the channel is also permeable to Ca2+) current of a magnitude that is inversely proportional to temperature. The channel is sensitive over a temperature range spanning about 10-35°C. TRPM8 can also be activated by the binding of an extracellular ligand. Menthol can activate the TRPM8 channel in this way. Since the TRPM8 is expressed in neurons whose physiological role is to signal cooling, menthol applied to various bodily surfaces evokes a sensation of cooling. The feeling of freshness associated with the activation of cold receptors by menthol, particularly those in facial areas with axons in the trigeminal (V) nerve, accounts for its use in numerous ...
