Short-term Effects of Carbon Monoxide on Mortality: An Analysis within the APHEA Project
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2007)
Objectives: We investigated the short-term effects of carbon monoxide on total and cardiovascular mortality in 19 European cities participating in the APHEA-2 (Air Pollution and Health: A European Approach) project. Methods: ...
Decreased PM10 Exposure Attenuates Age-Related Lung Function Decline: Genetic Variants in p53, p21, and CCND1 Modify This Effect
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2009)
Background: Decreasing exposure to airborne particulates was previously associated with reduced age-related decline in lung function. However, whether the benefit from improved air quality depends on genetic background is ...
Estimating the Exposure–Response Relationships between Particulate Matter and Mortality within the APHEA Multicity Project
(National Institue of Environmental Health Sciences, 2004)
Several studies have reported significant health effects of air pollution even at low levels of air pollutants, but in most of theses studies linear nonthreshold relations were assumed. We investigated the exposure–response ...
Differences in Heart Rate Variability Associated with Long-Term Exposure to NO2
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2008)
Background: Heart rate variability (HRV), a measure of cardiac autonomic tone, has been associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Short-term studies have shown that subjects exposed to higher traffic-associated ...
