The effect of smoking cessation on the airways

We are interested in investigating the effects of quitting cigarette smoking on epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) and vascular changes by using airway tissue before, 3 and 12 months after quitting, from 84 individuals at the beginning, 42 at 3 months and 22 at 12 months, with 50% having obstructed physiology.
