Invited Perspective: Forward Progress in Characterizing the Mortality Burden of [PM.sub.2.5] for India.Home to nearly 1.4 billion people (World Bank 2022), India is one of the most populated countries in the world. India also has some of the highest levels of air pollution, with an estimated population-weighted mean fine...

Markers of inflammation and coagulation after long-term exposure to coarse particulate matter: a cross-sectional analysis from the multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosisBACKGROUND: Toxicological research suggests that coarse particles ([PM.sub.10-2.5]) are inflammatory, but responses are complex and may be best summarized by multiple inflammatory markers. Few human studies have...

Longitudinal Analysis of Long-Term Air Pollution Levels and Blood Pressure: A Cautionary Tale from the Multi-Ethnic Study of AtherosclerosisBackground: Air pollution exposures are hypothesized to impact blood pressure, yet few longitudinal studies exist, their findings are inconsistent, and different adjustments have been made for potentially distinct...

Exposure to Air Pollution in Relation to Risk of Dementia and Related Outcomes: An Updated Systematic Review of the Epidemiological Literature.BACKGROUND: Dementia is a devastating neurologic condition that is common in older adults. We previously reviewed the epidemiological evidence examining the hypothesis that long-term exposure to air pollution affects...

Fine and Coarse Particulate Matter Exposures and Associations with Acute Cardiac Events among Participants in a Telemedicine Service: A Case-Crossover StudyBackground: Subclinical cardiovascular changes have been associated with ambient particulate matter (PM) exposures within hours. Although the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency continues to look for additional...

Modeling the residential infiltration of outdoor PM2.5 in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis and Air Pollution (MESA air)BACKGROUND: Epidemiologic studies of fine particulate matter [aerodynamic diameter [less than or equal to] 2.5 [micro]m ([PM.sub.2.5])] typically use outdoor concentrations as exposure surrogates. Failure to account for...

Common genetic variation, residential proximity to traffic exposure, and left ventricular mass: the Multi-Ethnic Study of AtherosclerosisBACKGROUND: Elevated left ventricular mass (LVM) is a strong predictor of negative cardiovascular outcomes, including heart failure, stroke, and sudden cardiac death. A relationship between close (< 50 m compared with >...

Longitudinal associations between neighborhood physical and social environments and incident type 2 diabetes mellitus: the multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis (MESA)Citation Only
From:Environmental Health Perspectives (Vol. 121, Issue 11-12) Peer-Reviewed
Air pollution and individual and neighborhood socioeconomic status: evidence from the multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis (MESA)BACKGROUND: Although research has shown that low socioeconomic status (SES) and minority communities have higher exposure to air pollution, few studies have simultaneously investigated the associations of individual and...

Association Between Long-term Exposure to Ambient Air Pollution and Change in Quantitatively Assessed Emphysema and Lung Function.Citation Only
From:Environmental Health Perspectives (Vol. 125, Issue 7) Peer-Reviewed
Ambient coarse particulate matter and the right ventricle: the multi-ethnic study of AtherosclerosisBackground: Coarse particulate matter ([PM.sub.10-2.5]) is primarily mechanically generated and includes crustal material, brake and tire wear, and biological particles. [PM.sub.10-2.5] is associated with pulmonary...

Self-Reported Health and Metal Body Burden in an Electronic Waste Recycling Community in Northeastern Thailand.Abstract Only
From:Environmental Health Perspectives (Vol. 123, Issue 2) Peer-Reviewed
Air pollution and percent emphysema identified by computed tomography in the multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosisBackground: Air pollution is linked to low lung function and to respiratory events, yet little is known of associations with lung structure. Objectives: We examined associations of particulate matter ([PM.sub.2.5],...
From:Environmental Health Perspectives (Vol. 129, Issue 8) Peer-ReviewedBackground: Air pollution may be associated with elevated dementia risk. Prior research has limitations that may affect reliability, and no studies have evaluated this question in a population-based cohort of men and...
