    • Chronic Lung Function Decline in Cotton Textile Workers: Roles of Historical and Recent Exposures to Endotoxin 

      Shi, Ping; Mehta, Amar J.; Hang, Jing-qing; Zhang, Hongxi; Dai, Helian; Su, Li; Eisen, Ellen A.; Christiani, David C. (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2010)
      Background: Long-term occupational exposure to cotton dust that contains endotoxin is associated with chronic respiratory symptoms and excessive decline in forced expiratory volume in 1 sec (FEV1), but the mechanisms of ...
    • Cox Model Setup: Garshick et al. Respond 

      Garshick, Eric; Laden, Francine; Hart, Jaime Elizabeth; Davis, Mary Elizabeth; Eisen, Ellen A.; Smith, Thomas J. (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2012)
    • Determinants of Organophosphorus Pesticide Urinary Metabolite Levels in Young Children Living in an Agricultural Community 

      Bradman, Asa; Castorina, Rosemary; Barr, Dana Boyd; Chevrier, Jonathan; Harnly, Martha E.; Eisen, Ellen A.; McKone, Thomas E.; Harley, Kim; Holland, Nina; Eskenazi, Brenda (MDPI, 2011)
      Organophosphorus (OP) pesticides are used in agriculture and several are registered for home use. As young children age they may experience different pesticide exposures due to varying diet, behavior, and other factors. ...
    • Lung Cancer and Elemental Carbon Exposure in Trucking Industry Workers 

      Garshick, Eric; Laden, Francine; Hart, Jaime Elizabeth; Davis, Mary Elizabeth; Eisen, Ellen A.; Smith, Thomas J. (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2012)
      Background: Diesel exhaust has been considered to be a probable lung carcinogen based on studies of occupationally exposed workers. Efforts to define lung cancer risk in these studies have been limited in part by lack of ...
    • Lung Cancer and Vehicle Exhaust in Trucking Industry Workers 

      Garshick, Eric; Laden, Francine; Hart, Jaime Elizabeth; Rosner, Bernard Alfred; David, Mary E.; Eisen, Ellen A.; Smith, Thomas J. (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2008)
      Background: An elevated risk of lung cancer in truck drivers has been attributed to diesel exhaust exposure. Interpretation of these studies specifically implicating diesel exhaust as a carcinogen has been limited because ...
    • Night heart rate variability and particulate exposures among boilermaker construction workers 

      Cavallari, Jennifer Margaret; Eisen, Ellen A.; Chen, Jiu-Chiuan; Fang, Shona C.; Dobson, Christine; Schwartz, Joel David; Christiani, David C. (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2007)
      Background: Although studies have documented the association between heart rate variability (HRV) and ambient particulate exposures, the association between HRV, especially at night, and metal-rich, occupational particulate ...
    • PM\(_{2.5}\) metal exposures and nocturnal heart rate variability: a panel study of boilermaker construction workers 

      Cavallari, Jennifer Margaret; Eisen, Ellen A.; Fang, Shona C.; Schwartz, Joel David; Hauser, Russ B.; Herrick, Robert F.; Christiani, David C. (BioMed Central, 2008)
      Background: To better understand the mechanism(s) of particulate matter (PM) associated cardiovascular effects, research priorities include identifying the responsible PM characteristics. Evidence suggests that metals play ...
