Sources of inter-individual variability in nicotine pharmacokinetics

  • S. Cholerton
  • N. W. McCracken
  • J. R. Idle


There is a considerable degree of inter-individual variability in the toxicological, physiological and psychological responses to tobacco products. Although these responses are determined by many factors, to a certain extent the differences may be attributed to variation in the pharmacokinetics of nicotine, the major pharmacologically active component of tobacco.
