Pulmonary inflammation is believed to be central to the pathogenesis due to exposure to fine particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter [Formula: see text] ([Formula: see text]). This central role, however, has not yet been systemically examined.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) will be the third leading cause of death world-wide by 2020. Prolonged exposure to particulate matter is associated with COPD progression and mortality. Di...
Vehicular pollution has become a major problem in urban areas due to the exponential rise in the number of automobiles. Typical exhaust emissions which include nitrogen oxides (NO), hydrocarbons (HC),...
Periodic regeneration is required to clean the diesel particulate filter (DPF) of heavy-duty diesel vehicle. In this study we analyze real-time particulate matter (PM) mass, particle number, and black...
Biodiesel, an alternative energy source, is promoted as cleaner and safer than other fuel options due to its reported reduction of particulate and gaseous emissions (CO, CO, and total hydrocarbons). H...
Diesel emissions have a high level of particulate matter which can cause inflammation and oxidative stress in the airways. A strategy to reduce diesel particulate matter and the associated adverse eff...
Objectives: This proposal addresses the overall hypothesis that ambient fine particulate matter exerts cardiovascular health effects via alteration of endothelial homeostasis, through a me...
Exposure to combustion-derived fine particulate air pollution is associated with cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. In previous studies, exposure to diesel exhaust (a major constituen...
Exposure to air pollution has been linked to increased cardiorespiratory morbidity and mortality. The exact component of air pollution that mediates this effect is unknown, but the link is...
We are studying the effects of exposure to diesel exhaust on lung inflammation in the presence and absence of an inhaled corticosteroid. Although data is mixed, studies show that asthmatic...
Air pollution is a major cause of cardiorespiratory morbidity and mortality. The exact components of air pollution that underlie the cardiovascular effects are not yet known, but combustio...
A glucose transport facilitator that is expressed primarily in PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; LIVER; and KIDNEYS. It may function as a GLUCOSE sensor to regulate INSULIN release and glucose HOMEOSTASIS.
A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain HOMEOSTASIS of BLOOD GLUCOSE. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).
Barriers used to separate and remove PARTICULATE MATTER from air.
Visible gaseous suspension of carbon and other particulate matter emitted from burning substances.
Any substance in the air which could, if present in high enough concentration, harm humans, animals, vegetation or material. Substances include GASES; PARTICULATE MATTER; and volatile ORGANIC CHEMICALS.
