BACKGROUND Epidemiologic evidence for a causative association between black carbon (BC) and health outcomes is limited. OBJECTIVES We estimated associations and exposure-response relationships between acute respiratory inflammation in schoolchildren and concentrations of BC and particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter of ≤ 2.5 μm (PM2.5) in ambient air before and during the air pollution intervention for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. METHODS We measured exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) as an… CONTINUE READING
