Descriptions

LP14564-6   Cotinine
Cotinine is a metabolite of nicotine that typically remains in the blood between 48 and 96 hours. The level of cotinine in the blood is proportionate to the amount of exposure to tobacco smoke, so it is a valuable indicator of tobacco smoke exposure, including secondary smoke. Women who smoke menthol cigarettes retain cotinine in the blood for a longer period. Race may also play a role, as African-Americans routinely register higher blood cotinine levels than Caucasians. Several factors, such as menthol cigarette preference and puff size, suggest that this difference may be more complex than gender or race. Drug tests can detect cotinine in the blood, urine, or saliva. The word 'cotinine' is an anagram of 'nicotine'. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.
