Reports about vanadium (V) inhalation toxicity on the hematopoietic system, specifically about coagulation are limited. Therefore, we decided to evaluate the effects of V with a complete blood count and morphologic analysis of platelets on blood smears. CD-1 male mice inhaled V2O5 0.02 M 1 h twice weekly over 12 weeks. Blood samples were obtained by direct heart puncture; Wright stained smears were used for platelet quantification. An increase in platelet count from the third week of exposure…

Spleen and bone marrow megakaryocytes as targets for inhaled vanadium.
TLDR
The modifications in MKs described here suggest that inhaled vanadium could induce megakaryocytic proliferation, which may result in increased production of platelets and increased risk for thromboembolic events.
Ultrastructural megakaryocyte modifications after vanadium inhalation in spleen and bone marrow.
TLDR
Modifications in MKs described here suggest that inhaled vanadium induce megakaryocytic maturation, a raise in its granules content and demarcation membrane systems, which may lead to a rise in circulating platelet production and an increased risk for thromboembolic events.
The effect of vanadium on platelet function.
Vanadium Pentoxide Inhalation Provokes Germinal Center Hyperplasia and Suppressed Humoral Immune Responses
TLDR
It is concluded that the chronic inhalation of V2O5, a frequent particle (PM2.5) component, induces histological changes and functional damage to the spleen, each of which appear to result in severe effects on the humoral immune response.
CD11c decrease in mouse thymic dendritic cells after vanadium inhalation
TLDR
A decrease in the presence of the CD11c surface marker on mouse thymic dendritic cells (DC) is reported as a result of host exposure to vanadium (here, in the form of vanadium pentoxide; V2O5) over a period of 4 weeks, which might induce a dysfunction and increase the risk for development of autoimmune reactions in different organs specifically and of autoimmune diseases in general in these V-exposed hosts.
A brief review of the biology of megakaryocytes and platelets and their role in thrombosis associated with particulate air pollution
TLDR
The biology of MKs and platelets and their role in particulate air pollution-related thrombosis is reviewed to emphasize the need for further research in this field.
Vías de señalización implicadas en la megacariopoyesis
TLDR
The association of inhaled vanadium and variations in megakaryopoyesis and thrombopoysesis is identified and a classification in T PO-dependent and TPO-independent is detailed.
Vanadium pentoxide induces the secretion of CXCL9 and CXCL10 chemokines in thyroid cells.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that V2O5 has no effect on thyroid follicular cell viability or proliferation, but it is able to induce the secretion of T-helper (Th)1 chemokines into the thyroid, synergistically increasing the effect of important Th1 cytokines such as interferon (IFN)γ and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)α.
Thymic cytoarchitecture changes in mice exposed to vanadium
TLDR
A thymic cortex–medulla distribution distortion in hosts due to apparent effects of the inhaled vanadium on cytokeratin-5 (K5+) epithelial cells in the same mouse model – after 1, 2, and 4 weeks of exposure – is reported by immunohistochemistry.
Induction of Th1 chemokine secretion in dermal fibroblasts by vanadium pentoxide.
TLDR
The results revealed that V2O5 had no significant effect on the viability or proliferation of fibroblasts, however it was able to induce the secretion of T‑helper (Th)1 chemokines from dermal fibro Blasts, synergistically increasing the effect of important Th1 cytokines, including interferon‑γ and tumor necrosis factor‑α.

Nigrostriatal Modifications After Vanadium Inhalation: An Immunocytochemical and Cytological Approach
TLDR
Dendritic spine density decreased drastically after V exposure; the same was observed with the TH-positive neurons, which decreased in a time-dependent mode; the decrease in spine density and in TH- positive neurons might have functional repercussions that should be studied because the trend of this element in the atmosphere is to increase.
Inhaled concentrated ambient particles are associated with hematologic and bronchoalveolar lavage changes in canines.
TLDR
The data suggest that CAPs inhalation is associated with subtle alterations in pulmonary and systemic cell profiles, and specific components of CAPs may be responsible for these biologic responses.
Vanadium in Ambient Air: Concentrations in Lung Tissue from Autopsies of Mexico City Residents in the 1960s and 1990s
TLDR
Findings suggest that vanadium in ambient air is increasing and it represents a potential health hazard for Mexico City residents and air pollution monitoring efforts should include vanadium concentrations in suspended particles.
Metals in lung tissue from autopsy cases in Mexico City residents: comparison of cases from the 1950s and the 1980s.
TLDR
In autopsies performed on residents of Mexico City during the 1950s and 1980s, concentrations of cadmium, copper, cobalt, nickel, and lead in the lungs were studied by atomic absorption spectrometry and the concentrations were influenced by gender.
Air pollution and retained particles in the lung.
TLDR
Observations indicate for the first time that residence in a region with high levels of ambient particles results in pulmonary retention of large quantities of fine and ultrafine particle aggregates, some of which appear to be combustion products.
Acute respiratory effects of particulate air pollution.
TLDR
In the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, several episodes of extreme air pollution focused attention on the potential for adverse health effects of air pollution, and the increased mortality associated with such episodes provided the first quantitative measure of the adverse effects ofAir pollution.
Air Pollution and Cardiovascular Disease: A Statement for Healthcare Professionals From the Expert Panel on Population and Prevention Science of the American Heart Association
TLDR
The purpose of this statement is to provide healthcare professionals and regulatory agencies with a comprehensive review of the literature on air pollution and cardiovascular disease and practical recommendations for healthcare providers and their patients are outlined.
Association of higher levels of ambient criteria pollutants with impaired cardiac autonomic control: a population-based study.
TLDR
It is suggested that higher ambient pollutant concentrations are associated with lower cardiac autonomic control, especially among persons with existing CVD, and highlight a putative mechanism through which air pollution is associated with CVD.
Ambient pollution and heart rate variability.
TLDR
Particle and ozone exposure may decrease vagal tone, resulting in reduced HRV, in active Boston residents observed up to 12 times from June to September 1997.
