Exposure to urban airborne particulate matter (PM) has been associated with adverse health effects. In this work, we focused our attention on the capacity of air pollution PM to induce cytotoxic, oxidative stress, and inflammatory responses in human epithelial lung cells (L132) in culture. PM were collected in Dunkerque, a French seaside city, and their(More)
Epidemiological studies have associated the increase of respiratory and cardiovascular mortality and morbidity with high levels of air pollution particulate matter (PM). However, the underlying mechanisms of actions by which PM induce adverse health effects are still unclear. We have recently undertaken an extensive investigation of the adverse health(More)
To contribute to improving knowledge on the adverse health effects induced by particulate matter (PM) air pollution, an extensive investigation was undertaken of the underlying mechanisms of action activated by PM(2.5) air pollution collected in Dunkerque, a strongly industrialized French seaside city. Their chemical and physical characteristics have been(More)
To contribute to complete the knowledge of the underlying mechanisms of action involved in air pollution particulate matter (PM)-induced cytotoxicity, an aerosol was collected in Dunkerque, a French seaside City heavily industrialized. In this work, we focused our attention on its physical and chemical characteristics, its cytotoxicity, and its role in the(More)
Exposure to urban airborne particulate matter (PM) has been associated with adverse health effects. The majority of research articles published on air pollution PM relate to PM10. However, increasing emphasis and stringent regulations have been placed on PM2.5. The mechanisms for PM-induced adverse health effects are not well understood, but inflammation(More)
The complexes formed between D-3-phosphoglyceric acid and H(+), Cu(II) and VO(IV) were studied by pH-potentiometric and spectral (UV-Vis, EPR and CD) methods in order to describe the speciation of the metal ions and to determine the most probable binding modes in the complexes formed in these systems. The results show that, in the pH range between 2 and 4,(More)
