Ambient levels of particulate matter have been linked to cardiovascular disease. The mechanisms mediating these associations are poorly understood. One candidate mechanism is inflammation. Using data from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (2000-2002), the authors investigated the relation between exposure to particulate matter of less than or equal to 2.5 microm in diameter (PM2.5) and C-reactive protein concentration in 5,634 persons aged 45-84 years who were free of cardiovascular… CONTINUE READING
