  • 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, 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 ...
