BACKGROUND Exposure to ambient ultrafine particulate matter (UFP) is a well-recognized risk factor for cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. However, little is known about the effects of air pollution on gastrointestinal disorders. OBJECTIVE We sought to assess whether exposure to ambient UFP (diameter < 180 nm) increased free fatty acids and lipid metabolites in the mouse small intestine. METHODS Ldlr-null mice were exposed to filtered air (FA) or UFP collected at an urban Los Angeles… CONTINUE READING
