Summary of "The Association between Long-Term Air Pollution and Urinary Catecholamines: Evidence from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis."

Autonomic nervous system effects have been hypothesized as a mechanism of air pollutant health effects, though scant prior epidemiologic research has examined the association between air pollutants and catecholamines.

Association of long-term exposure to fine particulate matter and incident dyslipidaemia: A longitudinal cohort study.

Evidence of the effects of long-term exposure to fine particulate matter (PM) air pollution on the development of dyslipidaemia is limited. This study aimed to investigate the association between long...

Is Long-term Ambient Air Pollutant Exposure a Risk Factor for Irritable Bowel Syndrome in Children? A 12-year Longitudinal Cohort Study.

Recent studies suggest that air pollution may play a role in gastrointestinal disorders. However, the effect of long-term exposure to air pollution on childhood irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is uncle...

Air pollution and telomere length in adults: A systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies.

Telomere length (TL) has been suggested to be a surrogate for cellular ageing, and a record of cumulative inflammation and oxidative stress over life. An emerging body of evidence has associated expos...

Cross-sectional associations between long-term exposure to particulate matter and depression in China: The mediating effects of sunlight, physical activity, and neighborly reciprocity.

Although numerous studies have speculated about the direct and indirect linkage between long-term air pollution (i.e., PM) concentrations and mental health in developed countries, evidence for develop...

Parkinson's disease and long-term exposure to outdoor air pollution: A matched case-control study in the Netherlands.

There is some evidence to suggest an association between ambient air pollution and development of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, the small number of studies published to date has reported inconsis...

Short-term Air Pollution Exposure and In-hospital Outcomes in Patients With Acute Myocardial Infraction

The aim of this study is to investigate whether or not short-term expose to air pollution is associated with in-hospital outcomes, such as mortality and morbidity.

Effect of Air Pollution on Long-Term Asthma Severity and Lung Function in Children

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A urinary anti-infective agent effective against most gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. Although sulfonamides and antibiotics are usually the agents of choice for urinary tract infections, nitrofurantoin is widely used for prophylaxis and long-term suppression.

Health insurance to provide full or partial coverage for long-term home care services or for long-term nursing care provided in a residential facility such as a nursing home.

Persons who have experienced prolonged survival of HIV infection. This includes the full spectrum of untreated, HIV-infected long-term asymptomatics to those with AIDS who have survived due to successful treatment.

A persistent increase in synaptic efficacy, usually induced by appropriate activation of the same synapses. The phenomenological properties of long-term potentiation suggest that it may be a cellular mechanism of learning and memory.

A persistent activity-dependent decrease in synaptic efficacy between NEURONS. It typically occurs following repeated low-frequency afferent stimulation, but it can be induced by other methods. Long-term depression appears to play a role in MEMORY.
