Air Pollution, Smoking, and Plasma Homocysteine
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2006)
Background: Mild hyperhomocysteinemia is independently associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Air pollution exposure induces short-term inflammatory changes that may determine hyperhomocysteinemia, ...
Effects of Particulate Matter on Genomic DNA Methylation Content and iNOS Promoter Methylation
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2008)
Background: Altered patterns of gene expression mediate the effects of particulate matter (PM) on human health, but mechanisms through which PM modifies gene expression are largely undetermined.Objectives We aimed at ...
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 ...
