Summary of "Short-term exposure to ultrafine particles is associated to bronchial inflammation in schoolchildren."

Ultrafine particles (UFP, particulate matter PM<100 nm), through their small size, high number and surface area, and their chemical composition , can induce serious health effects . UFP are able to reach lung alveoli and are toxic through mechanisms of oxidative stress, cell signalling and activation, and release of mediators initiating inflammatory processes in the respiratory tract and in the cardio-vascular system .

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Standards for limiting worker exposure to airborne contaminants. They are the maximum concentration in air at which it is believed that a particular substance will not produce adverse health effects with repeated daily exposure. It can be a time-weighted average (TLV-TWA), a short-term value (TLV-STEL), or an instantaneous value (TLV-Ceiling). They are expressed either as parts per million (ppm) or milligram per cubic meter (mg/m3).

Experiments designed to determine the potential toxic effects of one-time, short-term exposure to a chemical or chemicals.

Experiments designed to determine the potential toxic effects of a short-term (a few weeks) exposure to a chemical or chemicals.

Short-lived radioactive decay products of radon that include 216-Po, 214-Pb, 214-Bi, and 214-Po. They have an effective half-life of about 30 minutes and are solids that can deposit on the bronchial airways during inhalation and exhalation. This results in exposure of the respiratory airways to alpha radiation and can lead to diseases of the respiratory system, including lung cancer. (From Casarett and Doull's Toxicology, 4th ed, p740)
