  1. 1. Removal of ultrafine particles by intermediate air filters in ventilation systems. Evaluation of performance and analysis of applications

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Bingbing Shi; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; indoor air quality; ultrafine particles; air cleaning; filter standard; intermediate filter; measurements; modelling; lifetime cost; particle source; health effect;

    Abstract : Epidemiological and toxicological studies demonstrate that ultrafine particles (UFPs) are strongly related with respiratory and cardiovascular diseases and syndromes. One common method to reduce human exposure to particulate air pollution is the use of intermediate class filters (F5-F9 class filters according to EN779:2002). READ MORE

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Camilla Andersson; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Acidification; Air Pollution; Climate Change; Europe; Numerical Model; Emission; Eutrophication; Key region; Nitrogen Dioxide; Particulate Matter; PM; Source region; Surface Ozone; Tropospheric Ozone; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap; tillämpad miljövetenskap; Applied Environmental Science;

    Abstract : The main objectives of this thesis were to investigate the dependency of European air pollution on climate variability and emission source region. Calculations with a chemistry transport model (CTM) were conducted to investigate the influence of climate variability. READ MORE

  4. 4. Interaction of genetic susceptibility and traffic-related air pollution in cardiovascular disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Anna Levinsson; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular disease; genetic variants; air pollution; gene-environment interaction;

    Abstract : This thesis aimed at investigating gene-environment interaction in cardiovascular disease (CVD). A study population of 618 coronary heart disease (CHD) cases (of which 192 first-time acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients) and 3614 randomly selected population controls was genotyped for genetic variants in genes coding for nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and glutathione s-transferase (GST).

  5. 5. Genetic studies on childhood asthma and allergy : : Role of interactions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Institute of Enviromental Medicine

    Author : Erik Melén; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Air pollution; asthma; allergy; BAMSE; child; environment; epistasis; GPR-A; genetics; haplotype; heredity; interaction; polymorphism; wheezing;

    Abstract : The occurrence of asthma and allergic diseases is influenced by inherited and environmental factors, and symptoms of asthma and allergy usually begin in early childhood. The overall aim with this thesis was to study the role of genetic factors for the development of childhood asthma and allergy, and to evaluate potential interaction between genetic and environmental factors.
