Vitamin E acetate appears to be a common link among the products containing THC used by patients with electronic cigarette- or vaping-associated lung injury, or EVALI, in Minnesota, according to a report published in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
Sixteen of the 96 patients with confirmed or probable EVALI identified from Aug. 9 to Oct. 31, 2019, in Minnesota provided samples from 265 products for testing to the Minnesota Department of Health. Of the 67 products selected for testing, 46 contained THC and 21 contained nicotine. Samples were evaluated using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
