Novel properties of statins: suppression of the systemic and bone marrow responses induced by exposure to ambient particulate matter (PM(10)) air pollution.

Abstract

Exposure to ambient particulate matter (PM(10) elicits systemic inflammatory responses that include the stimulation of bone marrow and progression of atherosclerosis. The present study was designed to assess the effect of repeated exposure of PM(10) on the turnover and release of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) from the bone marrow into the circulation… (More)
