BACKGROUND The biological mechanisms involved in inflammatory response to air pollution are not clearly understood. OBJECTIVE In this study we assessed the association of short-term air pollutant exposure with inflammatory markers and lung function. METHODS We studied a cohort of 158 asthmatic and 50 nonasthmatic school-age children, followed an average(More)
BACKGROUND We previously reported that asthmatic children with GSTM1 null genotype may be more susceptible to the acute effect of ozone on the small airways and might benefit from antioxidant supplementation. This study aims to assess the acute effect of ozone on lung function (FEF(25-75)) in asthmatic children according to dietary intake of vitamin C and(More)
BACKGROUND Air pollution is a problem, especially in developing countries. We examined the association between personal exposure to particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter less than 2.5 µm (PM2.5) on respiratory health in a group of adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). METHODS All participants resided in Mexico City and during(More)
