  • Amaral, André F.S.; Antó i Boqué, Josep Maria; Zock, Jan-Paul; Deborah, Jarvis (Elsevier, 2015)
    BACKGROUND: Cross-sectional studies have reported a lower prevalence of sensitization in older adults, but few longitudinal studies have examined whether this is an aging or a year-of-birth cohort effect. OBJECTIVE: We ...
  • Czachorowski, Maciej J; Amaral, André F.S.; Montes-Moreno, Santiago; Lloreta Trull, Josep, 1958-; Carrato, Alfredo; Tardón, Adonina; Morente, Manuel M; Kogevinas, Manolis; Real, Francisco X.; Malats i Riera, Núria (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2012)
    Aberrant overexpression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) is observed in urothelial carcinoma of the bladder (UCB). Studies evaluating COX2 as a prognostic marker in UCB report contradictory results. We determined the prognostic ...
  • Jeong, Ayoung; Imboden, Medea; Ghantous, Akram; Novoloaca, Alexei; Carsin, Anne-Elie; Kogevinas, Manolis; Schindler, Christian; Lovison, Gianfranco; Herceg, Zdenko; Cuenin, Cyrille; Vermeulen, Roel; Jarvis, Deborah; Amaral, André F.S.; Kronenberg, Florian; Vineis, Paolo; Probst-Hensch, Nicole (MDPI, 2019)
    A high body mass (BMI) index has repeatedly been associated with non-atopic asthma, but the biological mechanism linking obesity to asthma is still poorly understood. We aimed to test the hypothesis that inflammation and/or ...

    In this article, early career members and experienced members of the Epidemiology and Environment Assembly of the European Respiratory Society highlight and summarise a selection of six sessions from the Society's annual ...
  • Tajuddin, Salman Muhammad; Amaral, André F.S.; Fernández, Agustín F.; Rodriguez Rodero, Sandra; Rodríguez, Ramón María; Moore, Lee E.; Tardón, Adonina; Carrato, Alfredo; García Closas, Montserrat; Silverman, Debra T.; Jackson, Brian P.; García Closas, Reina; Cook, Ashley L.; Cantor, Kenneth P; Chanock, Stephen J.; Kogevinas, Manolis; Rothman, Nathaniel; Real, Francisco X.; Malats i Riera, Núria (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), 2013)
    Background: Altered DNA methylation has been associated with various diseases. Objective: We evaluated the association between levels of methylation in leukocyte DNA at long interspersed nuclear element 1 (LINE-1) and ...

    DNA methylation changes contribute to bladder carcinogenesis. Trihalomethanes (THM), a class of disinfection by-products, are associated with increased urothelial bladder cancer (UBC) risk. THM exposure in animal models ...

    Background: Aberrant global DNA methylation is shown to increase cancer risk. LINE-1 has been proven a measure of global DNA methylation. The objectives of this study were to assess the association between LINE-1 methylation ...

    Background and Aims: Knowledge on the aetiology of exocrine pancreatic cancer (EPC) is scant. The best established risk factor for EPC is tobacco smoking. Among other carcinogens, tobacco contains cadmium, a metal previously ...

    Background: Low lung function has been associated with increased body mass index (BMI). The aim of this study was to investigate whether the effect of BMI on lung function is mediated by DNA methylation. Methods: We used ...
