Short Communication Transition Metals in Personal Samples of PM2.5 and Oxidative Stress in Human Volunteers

Abstract

Ambient particulate matter (PM) has been associated with increased risk of lung cancer. One proposed mechanism is that PM induces oxidative stress mediated by transition metals contained within this mixture. We examined the relationship between the personal exposure to watersoluble transition metals in PM2.5 and oxidative DNA damage. In 49 students from… (More)
