From the authors: "Our study reveals that short-term e-cigarette cessation in regular users decreases baseline heart rate and increases [club cell secretory protein-16] and [forced expiratory flow-25%], suggesting a slight improvement of airways status. Five days of vaping cessation also modified the urine metabolomic signature."

This study is highlighted as one of January's "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
