1. Short-term ambient particulate air pollution exposure, microRNAs, blood pressure and lung function.

Ambient particulate air pollution is a risk factor for cardiovascular and respiratory disease, yet the biological mechanisms underlying this association are not well understood. The current study aimed to investigate the mediation role of microRNAs on the association between personal PM2.5 exposure ...

2. Percutaneous metals absorption following exposure to road dust powder.

The skin constitutes a protective barrier to external physical and chemical aggressions. Although it is constantly exposed to various xenobiotics, it is generally considered poorly permeable to them, as for example metal ions, becoming unfortunately an entry route of such substances. Metals may...

3. Coupling in vitro assays with sequential extraction to investigate cadmium bioaccessibility in contaminated soils.

To understand how Cd in different fractions contributes to Cd bioaccessibility by in vitro assays, Cd bioaccessibility in 12 contaminated soils was determined by four assays (UBM, SBRC, IVG, and PBET) and correlated with different Cd fractions based on a sequential extraction scheme. The Cd...

4. A global systematic review on the concentration of organophosphate esters in water resources: meta-analysis, and probabilistic risk assessment.

Organophosphate esters (OPEs) are used as additives in various industries. They do not chemically bond with the polymeric structure of materials, so they can stay for a long time and have a very adverse effect on the environment. To analyze the development of the prevalence and concentration of...

5. Ecological and human health risks of manure-borne steroid estrogens: a 20-year global synthesis study.

Estrone (E1), 17α-estradiol (17α-E2), 17β-estradiol (17β-E2), and estriol (E3) are persistent in livestock manure and present serious pollution concerns because they can trigger endocrine disruption at part-per-trillion levels. This study conducted a global analysis of estrogen occurrence in manure ...

6. Restorative benefits of urban green space: physiological, psychological restoration and eye movement analysis.

Urban life is associated with a range of health risks. However, urban green spaces have been found to promote health recovery and reduce mental stress. This study sought to assess the influence of the spatial and environmental characteristics of urban green space on environmental restoration. We...

7. The correlation between chronic exposure to particulate matter and spontaneous abortion: a meta-analysis.

Background: Spontaneous abortion (SAB) brings serious physical and psychological sequelae to women and their families. Though a growing body of individual studies have suggested the possible linkage between chronic particulate matter (PM) exposure and risks of SAB, the provided results were rather...
