BackgroundAmbient air particulate matter (PM) is increasingly considered to be a causal factor evoking severe adverse health effects. People spend the majority of their time indoors, which should be taken into account especially in future risk assessments, when the role of outdoor air particles transported into indoor air is considered. Therefore, there is an urgent need for characterization of possible sources seasonally for harmful health outcomes both indoors and outdoors.MethodsIn this… Expand
Chemical and microbial components of urban air PM cause seasonal variation of toxicological activity.
TLDR
Endotoxin content was the highest in PM10-2.5 samples and correspondingly, the largest decrease in the responses by Polymyxin B was seen with the very same samples, suggesting other microbial components may have a significant effect on the toxicological responses by ambient particulate matter. Expand
The pro-inflammatory effects of particulate matter on epithelial cells are associated with elemental composition.
TLDR
This study provides novel insight into the positive associations between pro-inflammatory effects of roof space PM samples with Fe, Al and Mn levels. Expand
In vitro toxicity of indoor and outdoor PM10 from residential wood combustion.
TLDR
For indoor-generated PM10, organic carbon and PAH were significantly correlated with cell viability and bioluminescence reduction, suggesting a role of organic compounds in toxicity. Expand
The effects of indoor and outdoor dust exposure on the growth, sensitivity to oxidative-stress, and biofilm production of three opportunistic bacterial pathogens.
TLDR
Dust, either in nutrient-rich or -poor conditions, significantly increased biofilm production in all three bacterial species, suggesting that indoor and outdoor dust, can modify opportunistic bacteria through altering growth, sensitivity to oxidative stress, and their virulence potential through enhanced biofilm formation.

TLDR
It is hypothesized that continuous exposure to mold particles may result in chronic low-grade pro-inflammatory responses contributing to respiratory diseases, and some of the main methods for detection and characterization of fungal aerosols are summarized. Expand
Effect of air pollution on the total bacteria and pathogenic bacteria in different sizes of particulate matter.
TLDR
This study of the pathogenic bacteria in airborne PM samples can provide a reference for environmental and public health researchers. Expand
Dust at Various Workplaces—Microbiological and Toxicological Threats
TLDR
The most cytotoxic to the human lung cell line A-549 was dust from cultivated areas, whereas the cytotoxicity of the tested dust samples depends on the PM concentration, the number of microorganisms, including potentially pathogenic genera, and the exposure time. Expand
Removal of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and genotoxic compounds in urban air using air filter materials for mechanical ventilation in buildings
Humans spend most of their lives in indoor environments; hence, indoor exposure to air pollution may constitute a large part of the total exposure to air pollution. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbonsExpand
Cytotoxic effect of Filtering Respiratory Protective Devices from the waste sorting industry: is in vitro toxicology useful for risk characterization?
TLDR
It was determined that A549 cells exhibited a cytotoxic effect for a higher number of FRPD, whereas the SK cells model correlated better with the other assessed parameters, namely, bacterial and fungal load and conditions ofFRPD use. Expand
Influence of wood species on toxicity of log-wood stove combustion aerosols: a parallel animal and air-liquid interface cell exposure study on spruce and pine smoke
TLDR
Comprehensive in vitro and in vivo exposure studies with emission characterization and systems biology approaches revealed further information on the effects of combustion aerosol toxicity than could be achieved with either method alone. Expand

TLDR
Outdoor air samples were associated with higher inflammatory potential, whereas indoor air samples had overall higher cytotoxic properties, which indicates that the outdoor air has a limited influence on the indoor air quality in a modern house. Expand
Characterization of Chemical and Microbial Species from Size-Segregated Indoor and Outdoor Particulate Samples
The respirable particles in both outdoor and indoor air contain several different components that are considered to have adverse health effects; e.g., polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), variousExpand
Airborne Particulate Matter and Human Health: Toxicological Assessment and Importance of Size and Composition of Particles for Oxidative Damage and Carcinogenic Mechanisms
TLDR
The evaluation of most of these studies shows that the smaller the size of PM the higher the toxicity through mechanisms of oxidative stress and inflammation, and Associations between chemical compositions and particle toxicity tend to be stronger for the fine and ultrafine PM size fractions. Expand
Associations of urban air particulate composition with inflammatory and cytotoxic responses in RAW 246.7 cell line
TLDR
The present results suggest that the local sources of incomplete combustion and resuspended road dust are important producers of harmful fine particulate constituents that may, however, operate via diverse toxicity mechanisms. Expand
In vitro inflammatory and cytotoxic effects of size-segregated particulate samples collected during long-range transport of wildfire smoke to Helsinki.
TLDR
The episode events were associated with enhanced inflammogenic and cytotoxic activities per inhaled cubic meter of air due to the greatly increased particulate mass concentration in the accumulation size range, which may have public health implications. Expand
Particulate matter properties and health effects: consistency of epidemiological and toxicological studies
TLDR
There is a need for better exposure assessments in epidemiological and experimental investigations, whereas experimental data would benefit from an improved comparability of studies, and combined experimental and epidemiological investigations may also help answer some of the unresolved issues.

Relation Between Sources of Particulate Air Pollution and Biological Effect Parameters in Samples from Four European Cities: An Exploratory Study
TLDR
The present study has shown that biological effect of PM can be linked to one or more PM emission sources and that this linkage requires a wide range of bioassays. Expand
Chemical compositions responsible for inflammation and tissue damage in the mouse lung by coarse and fine particulate samples from contrasting air pollution in Europe.
TLDR
The results support epidemiological findings that the local sources of incomplete combustion and resuspended road dust are important in urban air particulate pollution-related health effects. Expand
Cytokine release from alveolar macrophages exposed to ambient particulate matter: Heterogeneity in relation to size, city and season
TLDR
The inflammatory potential of ambient PM demonstrated heterogeneity in relation to city and season, with coarse particle fractions were consistently more potent than the respective fine fractions. Expand

TLDR
In a relatively clean Nordic city, the resuspension of road dust and other non-exhaust particulate material from traffic were the major sources of inflammatory activity of urban air inhalable particles. Expand
