BACKGROUND Consistent evidence has indicated that air pollution increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases. The underlying mechanisms linking air pollutants to increased cardiovascular risk are unclear. OBJECTIVES We investigated the association between the pollution levels and changes in such global coagulation tests as the prothrombin time (PT) and(More)
In the present investigation, the effect of nitrogen dioxide exposure (50ppm) and role of vitamins E (2.5mg/rat) and vitamin C (5mg/rat) supplementation in combination on coagulation factors have been reported inmale albino rats. An increase in coagulation factors viz. Prothombintime (PT), Partial thromboplastin time (PTT), Activated partial thromboplastin(More)
OBJECTIVE construction of environmental indicators of air pollution suitable for epidemiological surveillance in 25 Italian cities for EpiAir2 project (2006-2010) and presentation of the results from a 10 years of surveillance system (2001-2010) in 10 Italian cities. DESIGN data on particulate matter (PM10 and its fine fraction PM2.5), nitrogen dioxide(More)
BACKGROUND Mild hyperhomocysteinemia is independently associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Air pollution exposure induces short-term inflammatory changes that may determine hyperhomocysteinemia, particularly in the presence of a preexisting proinflammatory status such as that found in cigarette smokers. OBJECTIVE We examined the(More)
