From the authors: "Our data indicate that maternal vaping impairs pregnancy outcomes, alters fetal lung structure, and dysregulates the Wnt signaling. This study provides experimental evidence for future regulations of e-cig products for pregnant women and developmentally vulnerable populations."

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