Association between exhaled breath condensate nitrate + nitrite levels with ambient coarse particle exposure in subjects with airways disease
Occupational and Environmental Medicine, 07/10/2012
Manney S et al. – An association was found between exposure to ambient coarse particles at central sites and EBC NOx, a marker of oxidative stress. The lack of association between PM measures more indicative of personal exposures (particularly indoor exposure) means interpretation should be cautious. However, EBC NOx may prove to be a marker of PM–induced oxidative stress in epidemiological studies.
