  1. 1. Activation of epithelial signal transduction pathways, cytokine production and airway inflammation following diesel exhaust exposure

    Author : Jamshid Pourazar; Thomas Sandström; Anders Blomberg; Anders Lindén; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Adverse health effects of ambient air pollution are well recognised and include increased morbidity and mortality in respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. Diesel engines are major contributors to ambient particulate matter pollution and diesel particles have been shown to have strong toxicological and oxidative properties. READ MORE

  2. 2. T cells in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

    Author : Ester Roos-Engstrand; Anders Blomberg; Anders Bucht; Annelie F Behndig; Magnus Sköld; Claes-Göran Löfdahl; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; airway epithelium; bronchoscopy; bronchoalveolar lavage; endobronchial mucosal biopsies; inflammation; flow cytometry; T lymphocytes; CD25; CD127; FoxP3; Lung diseases; Lungsjukdomar; lungmedicin; Lung Medicine;

    Abstract : Background: Tobacco smoking is the main cause of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD, but the mechanisms by which cigarette smoke induces COPD are still elusive. T lymphocytes have been implicated in the pathogenesis of the disease, but their role in the airway inflammation in COPD is not fully understood. READ MORE

  3. 3. Non-target Effects of Genetically Modified Trees

    Author : Patrik Blomberg; Anders Wennström; Jan Stenlid; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Genetically modified; GM trees; secondary metabolism; phytochemistry; Populus; transgenic; non-target effects; natural enemies; plant-pathogen herbivore interaction; environmental effects; parasitic fungi; herbivorous insect; Terrestrial ecology; Terrestisk ekologi;

    Abstract : To date, few studies have focused on the effects of genetically modified trees (GM trees) on the environment. One concern with GM trees is that they may have unanticipated effects on non-target organisms, i.e. effects on organisms that are not direct targets of the genetically modified trait. READ MORE

  4. 4. Respiratory and cardiovascular effects of exposure to oxidative air pollutants

    Author : Stefan Barath; Ellinor Ädelroth; Anders Blomberg; E David Newby; M Howard Kipen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Air Pollution; Particulate Matter; Diesel Exhaust; Ozone; Experimental Exposure studies; Luftföroreningar; Partiklar; Disel avgaser; ozon; Experimentella exponerings studier; Internal medicine; Invärtesmedicin; lungmedicin; Lung Medicine; Cardiology; kardiologi; Environmental Science; miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Background: The negative effects of air pollution on morbidity and mortality have been known since the mid 20th century. The two most well known examples are the Meuse Valley disaster in the 1930’ies and the London black fog in December 1952. READ MORE

  5. 5. Airway antioxidant responses to oxidative air pollution and vitamin supplementation

    Author : Annelie Behndig; Anders Blomberg; Ian S Mudway; Ragnberth Helleday; Isabelle Romieu; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Medicine; air pollution; ozone; diesel exhaust; airway inflammation; antioxidant; vitamin C; dehydroascorbate; vitamin supplementation; Medicin; lungmedicin; Lung Medicine;

    Abstract : Air pollutants, such as ozone (O3) and diesel exhaust particles, elicit oxidative stress in the lung. Antioxidants within the respiratory tract lining fluid (RTLF) protect the underlying tissue from oxidative injury. READ MORE
