Many countries have dedicated to the mitigation of air pollution in the past several decades. However, evidence of beneficial effects of air quality improvement on chronic kidney disease (CKD) remains limited. We thus investigated the effects of dynamic changes (including deterioration and improvement) in air quality on the incidence of CKD in a longitudinal study in Taiwan. During 2001-2016, this study recruited a total of 163,197 Taiwanese residents who received at least two standard physical…

The latent effect of air pollution in ESKD patients undergoing dialysis or renal transplant, kidney cancer and other kidney diseases is outlined and the potential roles of several air pollutants including particulate matter and gaseous co-pollutants, environmental tobacco smoke, and gasing heavy metals in its pathogenesis are elaborate.
Associations of Carbonaceous Compounds and Water-Soluble Inorganic Ions in Ambient PM2.5 with Renal Function in Older Individuals: The China BAPE Study.
It is demonstrated that carbonaceous compounds and WSIIs in PM2.5 were inversely associated with renal function.


Long-Term Exposure to Ambient PM2.5 and Increased Risk of CKD Prevalence in China.
Findings regarding the relationship between long-term exposure to high ambient PM2.5 levels and CKD in the general Chinese population provide important evidence for policy makers and public health practices to reduce the CKD risk posed by this pollutant.
Long-Term Exposure to Ambient Fine Particulate Matter and Chronic Kidney Disease: A Cohort Study
Long-term exposure to ambient PM2.5 was associated with an increased risk of CKD development, and the findings reinforce the urgency to develop global strategies of air pollution reduction to prevent CKD.
Associations between Long-Term Particulate Matter Exposure and Adult Renal Function in the Taipei Metropolis
Background: Studies on the effect of air pollutions on kidney diseases are still limited. Objective: We aimed to investigate the associations between particulate matter (PM) exposures and renal
Long-Term Exposure to Ambient Fine Particulate Matter and Mortality from Renal Failure: A Retrospective Cohort Study in Hong Kong.
Long-term exposure to atmospheric PM2.5 might be an important risk factor of RF mortality in the elderly population, especially among participants with existing renal diseases.
Traffic-related air pollution associated with chronic kidney disease among elderly residents in Taipei City.
One-year exposures to traffic-related air pollution were associated with lower eGFR, higher CKD prevalence, and increased risk of CKD progression among the elderly population and air pollution-related impaired renal function was stronger in non-CKD and non-diabetic subjects.
Particulate Matter Air Pollution and the Risk of Incident CKD and Progression to ESRD.
A significant association between exposure to PM2.5 and risk of incident CKD, eGFR decline, and ESRD is demonstrated and exposure estimates derived from National Aeronautics and Space Administration satellite data yielded consistent results.
Long-Term Exposure to Fine Particulate Matter, Blood Pressure, and Incident Hypertension in Taiwanese Adults
Long-term exposure to PM2.5 air pollution is associated with higher blood pressure and an increased risk of hypertension, and these findings reinforce the importance of air pollution mitigation strategies to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Particulate Matter and Albuminuria, Glomerular Filtration Rate, and Incident CKD.
Exposure to higher annual average PM2.5 concentrations was associated with a higher level of albuminuria and higher risk for incident CKD in a community-based cohort.
Reduced exposure to PM10 and attenuated age-related decline in lung function.
Exposure to airborne particulates appears to attenuate the decline in lung function related to exposure to PM10, and the effects are greater in tests reflecting small-airway function.
Long-Term Exposure to Ambient Fine Particulate Matter and Renal Function in Older Men: The Veterans Administration Normative Aging Study
The hypothesis that long-term PM2.5 exposure negatively affects renal function and increases renal function decline is supported in this longitudinal sample of older men.
