    Air pollution is a suspected developmental neurotoxicant. Many schools are located in close proximity to busy roads, and traffic air pollution peaks when children are at school. We aimed to assess whether exposure of ...
  • Rivas, Ioar; Viana, Maria Carmen; Moreno, Teresa; Pandolfi, Marco; Amato, Fulvio; Reche, Cristina; Bouso, Laura; Álvarez Pedrerol, Mar; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Alastuey, Andrés; Querol, Xavier (Elsevier, 2014)
    Proximity to road traffic involves higher health risks because of atmospheric pollutants. In addition to outdoor air, indoor air quality contributes to overall exposure. In the framework of the BREATHE study, indoor and ...
  • Ostro, Bart; Tobias, Aurelio; Querol, Xavier; Alastuey, Andrés; Amato, Fulvio; Pey, Jorge; Sunyer Deu, Jordi (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), 2011)
    Background: Dozens of studies link acute exposure to particulate matter (PM) air pollution with premature mortality and morbidity, but questions remain about which species and sources in the vast PM mixture are responsible ...
  • Viana, Maria Carmen; Rivas, Ioar; Reche, Cristina; Fonseca, Ana Sofía; Pérez, Noemí; Querol, Xavier; Alastuey, Andrés; Álvarez Pedrerol, Mar; Sunyer Deu, Jordi (Elsevier, 2015)
    The performance of three portable monitors (micro-aethalometer AE51, DiscMini, Dusttrak DRX) was assessed for outdoor air exposure assessment in a representative Southern European urban environment. The parameters evaluated ...

    Infiltration of outdoor-sourced particles into indoor environments in 39 schools in Barcelona was assessed during school hours. Tracers of road traffic emissions (NO2, Equivalent Black Carbon (EBC), Ultrafine Particles ...
  • Viana, Maria Carmen; Rivas, Ioar; Querol, Xavier; Alastuey, Andrés; Álvarez Pedrerol, Mar; Bouso, Laura; Sioutas, Constantinos; Sunyer Deu, Jordi (Elsevier, 2015)
    Particle size distribution patterns of trace elements and metals across three size fractions (<0.25 μm, quasi-ultrafine particles, q-UF; 0.25–2.5 μm, accumulation particles; 2.5–10 μm, coarse particles) were analysed in ...
  • Minguillón, María Cruz; Rivas, Ioar; Moreno, Teresa; Alastuey, Andrés; Font, Oriol; Córdoba, Patricia; Álvarez Pedrerol, Mar; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Querol, Xavier (Elsevier, 2015)
    Urban air pollution has a greater impact on children's health compared to adults. In the framework of the BREATHE (BRain dEvelopment and Air polluTion ultrafine particles in scHool childrEn) project, the present work studies ...

    BACKGROUND: Evidence on the short-term effects of ultrafine particles (with diameter<100nm, UFP) on health is still inconsistent. New particles in ambient urban air are the result of direct emissions and also the formation ...

    OBJECTIVE: To assess the relationship between short-term exposure to outdoor ambient air pollutants (fine particulate matter [PM2.5] and black carbon [BC]), ischemic stroke (IS) and its different subtypes, and the potential ...
  • Rivas, Ioar; Donaire González, David; Bouso, Laura; Esnaola, Mikel; Pandolfi, Marco; de Castro, Montserrat; Viana, Maria Carmen; Álvarez Pedrerol, Mar; Nieuwenhuijsen, Mark J.; Alastuey, Andrés; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Querol, Xavier (Wiley, 2016)
    At city level, personal monitoring is the best way to assess people's exposure. However, it is usually estimated from a few monitoring stations. Our aim was to determine the exposure to black carbon (BC) and BC dose for ...
