CONTEXT Exposure to single pollutants e.g. particulate matter (PM) is associated with adverse health effects, but it does not represent a real world scenario that usually involves multiple pollutants. OBJECTIVES Determine if simultaneous exposure to PM and NO₂ results in synergistic interactions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Healthy young volunteers were exposed to clean air, nitrogen dioxide (NO₂, 0.5 ppm), concentrated fine particles from Chapel Hill air (PM(2.5)CAPs, 89.5 ± 10.7 µg/m³), or NO… CONTINUE READING
