Are serum eosinophilic cationic protein levels of toll collectors affected by diesel exhaust exposure?

Abstract

OBJECTIVE There are few studies on the diesel exhaust particulates (DEP) / eosinophilic cationic protein (ECP) level relationship. This study aimed to detect ECP levels in a highly DE exposed group, named as toll collectors. METHODS In a cross-sectional study, levels of serum ECP, rates of respiratory symptoms, mean levels of respiratory functions… (More)
