Several epidemiological studies have recently shown associations of increased premature mortality rates with ambient paniculate air pollution. Diesel exhaust particles (DEP) may constitute an important part of (ultra)fine particulate air pollution in urban areas and may therefore contribute to its toxicity. Epithelial lining of the respiratory tract may be the first target of the toxic effects of DEP, that upon exposure may release pro-inflammatory mediators such as interleukin 6 and 8 (IL-6… CONTINUE READING
