Ambient levels of particulate matter have been linked to cardiovascular disease. The mechanisms mediating these associations are poorly understood. One candidate mechanism is inflammation. Using data from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (2000-2002), the authors investigated the relation between exposure to particulate matter of less than or equal(More)
The three latent components of the outcome (tGFR, systematic errors and random errors) were assumed to be independent with standard normal distribution, Normal (0, 1). In some situations, when the random errors are dependent on the underlying trait because the measurement error is proportional to the size of the measurement, the dependence can be removed(More)
