BACKGROUND Airborne particulate matter (PM) consists of particles from diverse sources, including vehicle exhausts. Associations between short-term PM changes and stroke incidence have been shown. Cumulative exposures over several months, or years, are less well studied; few studies examined ischaemic subtypes or PM source. AIMS This study combines a high resolution urban air quality model with a population-based stroke register to explore associations between long-term exposure to PM and… CONTINUE READING
