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, ...
Particulate air pollution, oxidative stress genes, and heart rate variability in an elderly cohort
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2007)
Background and Objectives: We have previously shown that reduced defenses against oxidative stress due to glutathione S-transferase M1 (GSTM1) deletion modify the effects of PM[2.5] (fine-particulate air pollution of < 2.5 ...
Annual Ambient Black Carbon Associated with Shorter Telomeres in Elderly Men: Veterans Affairs Normative Aging Study
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2010)
Background: Telomere length reflects biological age and is inversely associated with risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Ambient air pollution is associated with CVD, but its effect on telomere length is unknown. Objective: ...
