  1. Effect of Providing Information on Students' Knowledge and Concerns about Hydraulic Fracking.

    Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health,... 78(9):595 (2015) PMID 25965194

    Governmental agencies, regulators, health professionals, and the public are faced with understanding and responding to new development practices and conditions in their local and regional environment. While hydraulic fracking (fracking) for shale gas has been practiced for over 50 years in some ...
  2. Innate Immune Sensing of Fusarium culmorum by Mouse Dendritic Cells.

    Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health,... 78(13-14):871 (2015) PMID 26167753

    Chronic inhalation of grain dust is associated with asthma and chronic bronchitis in grain worker populations. Exposure to fungal particles was postulated to be an important etiologic agent of these pathologies. Fusarium species frequently colonize grain and straw and produce a wide array of myc...
  3. Children's Health and Indoor Air Quality in Primary Schools and Homes in Portugal-Study Design.

    Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health,... 78(13-14):915 (2015) PMID 26167757

    The main aim of the research project "On the Contribution of Schools to Children's Overall Indoor Air Exposure" is to study associations between adverse health effects, namely, allergy, asthma, and respiratory symptoms, and indoor air pollutants to which children are exposed to in primary school...
  4. Children's Indoor Exposures to (Ultra)Fine Particles in an Urban Area: Comparison Between School and Home Environments.

    Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health,... 78(13-14):886 (2015) PMID 26167754

    Due to their detrimental effects on human health, scientific interest in ultrafine particles (UFP), has been increasing but available information is far from comprehensive. Children, who represent one of the most susceptible subpopulation, spend the majority of time in schools and homes. Thus, t...
  5. Trace Elements in Ambient Air at Porto Metropolitan Area-Checking for Compliance with New European Union (EU) Air Quality Standards.

    Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health,... 78(13-14):848 (2015) PMID 26167751

    Because of the scientific evidence showing that arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), and nickel (Ni) are human genotoxic carcinogens, the European Union (EU) recently set target values for metal concentration in ambient air (As: 6 ng/m(3), Cd: 5 ng/m(3), Ni: 20 ng/m(3)). The aim of our study was to deter...
  6. Is There Sufficient Training of Health Care Staff on Noise Reduction in Neonatal Intensive Care Units? a Pilot Study From Neonoise Project.

    Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health,... 78(13-14):897 (2015) PMID 26167755

    Evidence indicates that exposure to high levels of noise adversely affects human health, and these effects are dependent upon various factors. In hospitals, there are many sources of noise, and high levels exert an impact on patients and staff, increasing both recovery time and stress, respectiv...
  7. Fine particulate air pollution and outpatient department visits for headache in Taipei, Taiwan.

    Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health,... 78(8):506 (2015) PMID 25849767

    This study was undertaken to determine whether there was an association between fine particle matter (PM(2.5)) levels and daily outpatient department visits (OPD) for headaches in Taipei, Taiwan. Daily OPD visits for headaches and ambient air pollution data for Taipei were obtained for the perio...
  8. Monitoring Genotoxicity Potential in the Mumbuca Stream, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

    Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health,... 78(20):1277 (2015) PMID 26503827

    Rivers are sites for water catchment to supply metropolitan areas but also serve as receptors for discharge of urban sewage, wastewater, and agri-industrial effluents. Bioindicators or sentinel organisms are widely used as markers of pollution in various environments. The objective of this study...
  9. The Biomarkers of Exposure and Effect in Agriculture (BEEA) Study: Rationale, Design, Methods, and Participant Characteristics.

    Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health,... 78(21-22):1338 (2015) PMID 26555155

    Agricultural exposures including pesticides, endotoxin, and allergens have been associated with risk of various cancers and other chronic diseases, although the biological mechanisms underlying these associations are generally unclear. To facilitate future molecular epidemiologic investigations,...
  10. Evaluation of Cytotoxicity and Cell Death Induced In Vitro by Saxitoxin in Mammalian Cells.

    Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health,... 78(19):1189 (2015) PMID 26436995

    Since the cyanotoxin saxitoxin (STX) is a neurotoxin and induces ecological changes in aquatic environments, a potential risk to public and environmental health exists. However, data on STX-mediated cytotoxic and genotoxic effects are still scare. In order to gain a better understanding of the e...
