Monalisha Paul and Sandip Kumar Sinha*
With the advent of nicotine replacement therapy, the consumption of the nicotine is on the rise. Nicotine is considered to be a safer alternative of tobacco. The IARC monograph has not included nicotine as a carcinogen. However there are various studies which show otherwise. We undertook this review to specifically evaluate the effects of nicotine on the various organ systems. On the other hand, soluble dilatory fibers (SDF) and zinc oxide nano particles (ZnONP) play an important role in the management of different diseases. Based on various research evidences, the current review was also performed the effect of nicotine-induced tissue toxicity and to clarify the ameliorative effect of different SDF and ZnONP.
Keywords: Nicotine, heart, liver, SDF and ZnONP.
