Epidemiologic and animal studies have shown that exposure to particulate matter air pollution (PM) is a risk factor for the development of atherosclerosis. Whether PM-induced lung and systemic inflammation is involved in this process is not clear. We hypothesized that PM exposure causes lung and systemic inflammation, which in turn leads to vascular(More)
Exposure to ambient particulate matter (PM(10) elicits systemic inflammatory responses that include the stimulation of bone marrow and progression of atherosclerosis. The present study was designed to assess the effect of repeated exposure of PM(10) on the turnover and release of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) from the bone marrow into the circulation(More)
