Abstract

Devastating effects of smoking on the respiratory system are commonly acknowledged. However, detailed knowledge of the responsible mechanisms is insufficient to allow early diagnosis and effective treatment of the smoking-related pathologies. This paper presents a review of key processes occuring in the smokers’ lungs, particularly these responsible for the persistent inflammatory response and neoplastic transformation.
