Airway epithelial cells have been described to release extracellular vesicles (EVs) with pathological properties when exposed to cigarette smoke extract (CSE). As CSE causes oxidative stress, researchers from Maastricht University Medical Center investigated whether its oxidative components are responsible for ...
