AIMS Episodes of increased air pollution are associated with increases in hospital admissions for cardiovascular disease. Even modest acute phase responses are associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease. The study investigates whether induction of an acute phase response by exposure to air pollution may contribute to cardiovascular pathology. METHODS AND RESULTS A prospective cohort study based on a survey in 1984/85 with a 3-year follow-up was conducted in 631 randomly selected… Expand
