Summary of "Perturbations of the arginine metabolome following exposures to traffic-related air pollution in a panel of commuters with and without asthma."

Mechanisms underlying the effects of traffic-related air pollution on people with asthma remain largely unknown, despite the abundance of observational and controlled studies reporting associations between traffic sources and asthma exacerbation and hospitalizations.
