Place: Teams meetingSummary: Air pollution and environmental noise have negative impacts on cardiovascular health. Yet, the effect of distinct sources of air pollution and traffic noise on biomarkers related to cardiovascular health is not well understood. In this seminar, we will present the results of a study where we investigated the cross-sectional associations of long-term exposure to air pollution from different sources (vehicular exhaust and residential wood smoke) and road-traffic noise with systemic inflammation and cardiovascular function. The study is based on the FINRISK data from 1997 to 2012, and the outcomes of interest were high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, a biomarker for systemic inflammation, and N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide and troponin I, which are cardiovascular biomarkers.

The seminar is open to everyone. You can follow updates at or on Twitter, with hashtag #tiistaiseminaarit.
