Russian scientists find that vape oils can help lung cancer patients

The researchers found that cigarette oils can improve the permeability of tissues to light waves and help treat throat and lung cancer.
According to RIA Novosti, scientists from the Saratov State Research University in Russia accidentally discovered other uses of e-cigarette oil in the medical field.


According to them, the components of tobacco oil enhance the transmittance of tissues to light waves, allowing doctors to better visualize affected organs and irradiate them more evenly during treatment, such as treating mucous membranes for throat and lung cancer.


Optical tissue visualization is considered a promising direction in medical diagnostics. Saratov State Research University NN University allows detailed study of diseases, especially cancer spreading zones and the internal structure of cells. -Professor G. Chernyshevsky presents.


In order for the irradiation to pass evenly and deeply through the skin and internal organs, a special hyaluronic agent is needed – that is, a substance that reduces the scattering of light from biological tissues and does not absorb light in the desired wavelength range, which is essential for the successful diagnosis of the disease.

Valery Tukhin, member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and head of the Department of Optics and Photonics at the Saratov State Research University, explains, “Our research has proved that the best transparent agents for different respiratory and oral neo-biological diagnostics are e-cigarette oils. They consist of vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol, which have shown high efficiency in previous transparent agents, and they are most effective in combination.”
