There is an increased concern about the health effects that air-suspended particles have on human health which have been dissected in animal models. Using CD-1 mouse, we explore the effects that vanadium inhalation produce in different tissues and organs. Our findings support the systemic effects of air pollution. In this paper, we describe our findings in(More)
Hematotoxicology has been studied with less interest than other fields associated with atmospheric pollution. There is limited knowledge about on the effects that certain atmospheric pollutants may provoke in the blood and bone marrow. Suspended particle pollution has become an area of scientific inquiry due to the contaminants adhering to its surface. We(More)
Urban air pollution is a serious worldwide problem due to its impact on human health. In the past 60 years, growing evidence established a correlation between exposure to air pollutants and the developing of severe respiratory diseases. Recently particulate matter (PM) is drawing more public attention to various aspects including historical backgrounds,(More)
Exposure to Particulate Matter (PM) could function as an adjuvant depending on the city of origin in mice allergic asthma models. Therefore, our aim was to determine whether inhalation of fine particles (PM2.5) from Mexico City could act as an adjuvant inducing allergic sensitization and/or worsening the asthmatic response in guinea pig, as a suitable model(More)
Practically all organs of the respiratory system are under the control of the autonomic nervous system. Double vegetative innervation, sympathetic and parasympathetic, contributes to the regulation of airway smooth muscle tone, and modulates secretion from the submucosal glands. Nevertheless, more than 20 years ago, the classical view of excitatory(More)
Vanadium (V) is an air pollutant released into the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels. Also, it has been recently evaluated for their carcinogenic potential to establish permissible limits of exposure at workplaces. We previously reported an increase in the number and size of platelets and their precursor cells and megakaryocytes in bone marrow and spleen.(More)
