PM is closely related to the incidence and mortality of respiratory diseases. Diesel particulate matter (DPM) is the main component of particulate air pollution and an important source of PM.

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...
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...
Glucocorticoid-induced osteonecrosis of the femoral head (GIONFH) is a common disease following long-term use or large doses of glucocorticoids. The pathogenesis of GIONFH remains controversial, and a...
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, ...
Many cities fail to meet air quality standards, which results in increased risk for pulmonary disorders, including asthma. Human and experimental studies have shown that diesel exhaust (DE) particles ...
Objectives: This proposal addresses the overall hypothesis that ambient fine particulate matter exerts cardiovascular health effects via alteration of endothelial homeostasis, through a me...
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...
Healthy volunteers will be exposed to ambient air near a roadway under the conditions of with and without a facemask and their responses will be evaluated.
A prospective study will be conducted in patients with COPD. The investigators will suggest about intervention for preventing in recurrence and aggravation of adult chronic respiratory dis...
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...
The presence of contaminants or pollutant substances in the air (AIR POLLUTANTS) that interfere with human health or welfare, or produce other harmful environmental effects. The substances may include GASES; PARTICULATE MATTER; or volatile ORGANIC CHEMICALS.
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.
A process of separating particulate matter from a fluid, such as air or a liquid, by passing the fluid carrier through a medium that will not pass the particulates. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
Asthma COPD Cystic Fibrosis Pneumonia Pulmonary Medicine Respiratory Respiratory tract infections (RTIs) are any infection of the sinuses, throat, airways or lungs. They're usually caused by viruses, but they can also ...
