Effects of Particulate Air Pollution on Blood Pressure in a Highly Exposed Population in Beijing, China: A Repeated-Measure Study
(BioMed Central, 2011)
Background: Particulate Matter (PM) exposure is critical in Beijing due to high population density and rapid increase in vehicular traffic. PM effects on blood pressure (BP) have been investigated as a mechanism mediating ...
Black Carbon Exposures, Blood Pressure, and Interactions with Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in MicroRNA Processing Genes
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2010)
Background: Black carbon (BC) is a marker of traffic pollution that has been associated with blood pressure (BP), but findings have been inconsistent. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are emerging as key regulators of gene expression, ...
Postural Changes in Blood Pressure Associated with Interactions between Candidate Genes for Chronic Respiratory Diseases and Exposure to Particulate Matter
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2009)
Background: Fine particulate matter [aerodynamic diameter ≤ 2.5 μm (PM2.5)] has been associated with autonomic dysregulation.Objective We hypothesized that PM2.5 influences postural changes in systolic blood pressure (ΔSBP) ...
