  • Villanueva Belmonte, Cristina; Gracia Lavedan, Esther; Castaño Vinyals, Gemma; Espinosa Díaz, Ana; Espejo Herrera, Nadia Carminia, 1983-; Nieuwenhuijsen, Mark J.; Kogevinas, Manolis (Environmental health perspectives, 2016)
    BACKGROUND: Evidence on the association between colorectal cancer and exposure to disinfection by-products in drinking water is inconsistent. OBJECTIVES: We assessed long-term exposure to trihalomethanes (THMs), the most ...
  • Espejo Herrera, Nadia Carminia, 1983-; Gràcia Lavedan, Esther; Castaño Vinyals, Gemma; Basagaña Flores, Xavier; Nieuwenhuijsen, Mark J.; Kogevinas, Manolis; Villanueva Belmonte, Cristina (Wiley, 2016)
    Ingested nitrate leads to the endogenous synthesis of N-nitroso compounds (NOCs), animal carcinogens with limited human evidence. We aimed to evaluate the risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) associated with nitrate exposure ...
  • Salas, Lucas A.; Bustamante Pineda, Mariona; González Ruiz, Juan Ramón; Gracia Lavedan, Esther; Moreno, Víctor; Kogevinas, Manolis; Villanueva Belmonte, Cristina (Taylor & Francis, 2015)
    Trihalomethanes (THM) are undesired disinfection byproducts (DBPs) formed during water treatment. Mice exposed to DBPs showed global DNA hypomethylation and c-myc and c-jun gene-specific hypomethylation, while evidence of ...
  • Pedersen, Marie; Mendez, Michelle A.; Espinosa, Ana; Villanueva Belmonte, Cristina; Gracia Lavedan, Esther; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Nieuwenhuijsen, Mark J.; Cirach, Marta; Agramunt, Silvia; Kogevinas, Manolis (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2015)
    BACKGROUND: Bulky DNA adducts reflect genotoxic exposures, have been associated with lower birth weight, and may predict cancer risk. OBJECTIVE: We selected factors known or hypothesized to affect in utero adduct formation ...
  • Font Ribera, Laia (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2010-11-29)
    ANTECEDENTS: La natació té beneficis per la salut, però l’assistència a piscines comporta l’exposició a subproductes de la cloració (SPC). Els banyistes podrien tenir cert risc de patir efectes respiratoris, com l’asma, ...

    Background: Evidence associating exposure to water disinfection by-products with reduced birth weight and altered duration of gestation remains inconclusive. Objective: We assessed exposure to trihalomethanes (THMs) during ...
  • Espejo Herrera, Nadia Carminia, 1983-; Gràcia Lavedan, Esther; Font Ribera, Laia; Castaño Vinyals, Gemma; Kogevinas, Manolis; Villanueva Belmonte, Cristina (Environmental Health Perspectives, 2016)
    BACKGROUND: Ingested nitrate leads to endogenous formation of N-nitroso compounds that are breast carcinogens in animals, but human evidence is limited. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated ingested nitrate as a risk factor for breast ...
  • Maitre, Léa; Villanueva Belmonte, Cristina; Lewis, Matthew R.; Ibarluzea, Jesús; Santa Marina, Loreto; Vrijheid, Martine; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Coen, Muireann; Toledano, Mireille B. (BioMed Central, 2016)
    BACKGROUND: Maternal metabolism during pregnancy is a major determinant of the intra-uterine environment and fetal outcomes. Herein, we characterize the maternal urinary metabolome throughout pregnancy to identify maternal ...
  • Espejo Herrera, Nadia Carminia, 1983- (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2015-11-13)
    Ingested nitrate is a precursor of N-nitroso compounds that are carcinogens in animals, with limited evidence in humans. The main objective of this thesis was to evaluate whether the exposure to nitrate through drinking ...

    BACKGROUND: Type 2 diabetes mellitus has been associated with an excess risk of colorectal cancer, although the time-risk relationship is unclear, and there is limited information on the role of antidiabetic medications. ...
  • Salas Díaz, Lucas Andrés, 1980- (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2015-07-09)
    Disinfection by-products (DBP) are complex mixtures of toxicants derived from drinking water treatment. Trihalomethanes (THM) and haloacetic acids (HAA) are the most prevalent DBP in chlorinated waters, which are used as ...
