    • Altered threat and safety neural processing linked to persecutory delusions in schizophrenia: a two-task fMRI study 

      Perez, David Lewis; Pan, Hong; Weisholtz, Daniel; Root, James C.; Tuescher, Oliver; Fischer, David Benjamin; Butler, Tracy; Vago, David R.; Isenberg, Nancy; Epstein, Jane Ingrid; Landa, Yulia; Smith, Thomas J.; Savitz, Adam J.; Silbersweig, David A; Stern, Emily (Elsevier BV, 2015)
      Persecutory delusions are a clinically important symptom in schizophrenia associated with social avoidance and increased violence. Few studies have investigated the neurobiology of persecutory delusions, which is a ...
    • Cause-specific mortality in the unionized U.S. trucking industry 

      Laden, Francine; Hart, Jaime Elizabeth; Smith, Thomas J.; Davis, Mary E.; Garshick, Eric (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2007)
      Background: Occupational and population-based studies have related exposure to fine particulate air pollution, and specifically particulate matter from vehicle exhausts, to cardiovascular diseases and lung cancer. Objectives: ...
    • Childhood Leukemia: Electric and Magnetic Fields as Possible Risk Factors 

      Brain, Joseph David; Kavet, Robert I.; McCormick, David L.; Poole, Charles; Silverman, Lewis Barry; Smith, Thomas J.; Valberg, Peter A.; Van Etten, R. A.; Weaver, James (Environmental Health Perspectives, 2003)
      Numerous epidemiologic studies have reported associations between measures of power-line electric or magnetic fields (EMFs) and childhood leukemia. The basis for such associations remains unexplained. In children, acute ...
    • 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)
    • The Impact of Diet and Betel Nut Use on Skin Lesions Associated with Drinking-Water Arsenic in Pabna, Bangladesh 

      McCarty, Kathleen M.; Houseman, Eugene Andres; Quamruzzaman, Quazi; Rahman, Mahmuder; Mahiuddin, Golam; Smith, Thomas J.; Ryan, Louise Marie; Christiani, David C. (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2005)
      An established exposure–response relationship exists between water arsenic levels and skin lesions. Results of previous studies with limited historical exposure data, and laboratory animal studies suggest that diet may ...
    • 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 ...
    • Lung Cancer in Railroad Workers Exposed to Diesel Exhaust 

      Garshick, Eric; Laden, Francine; Hart, Jaime Elizabeth; Rosner, Bernard Alfred; Smith, Thomas J.; Dockery, Douglas W.; Speizer, Frank Erwin (National Institue of Environmental Health Sciences, 2004)
      Diesel exhaust has been suspected to be a lung carcinogen. The assessment of this lung cancer risk has been limited by lack of studies of exposed workers followed for many years. In this study, we assessed lung cancer ...
    • Traffic-related exposures and biomarkers of systemic inflammation, endothelial activation and oxidative stress: a panel study in the US trucking industry 

      Neophytou, Andreas M; Hart, Jaime E; Cavallari, Jennifer M; Smith, Thomas J; Dockery, Douglas W; Coull, Brent A; Garshick, Eric; Laden, Francine (BioMed Central, 2013)
      Background: Experimental evidence suggests that inhaled particles from vehicle exhaust have systemic effects on inflammation, endothelial activation and oxidative stress. In the present study we assess the relationships ...
    • Using Physiologically-Based Pharmacokinetic Models to Incorporate Chemical and Non-Chemical Stressors into Cumulative Risk Assessment: A Case Study of Pesticide Exposures 

      Wason, Susan Chemerynski; Smith, Thomas J.; Perry, Melissa J.; Levy, Jonathan Ian (MDPI, 2012)
      Cumulative risk assessment has been proposed as an approach to evaluate the health risks associated with simultaneous exposure to multiple chemical and non-chemical stressors. Physiologically based pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic ...
