PMID:  Epidemiology. 2023 Mar 1 ;34(2):271-281. Epub 2023 Jan 31. PMID: 36722810 Abstract Title:  Short-term Air Pollution Levels and Blood Pressure in Older Women. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Evidence of associations between daily variation in air pollution and blood pressure (BP) is varied and few prior longitudinal studies adjusted for calendar time.METHODS: We studied 143,658 postmenopausal women 50 to 79 years of age from the Women's Health Initiative (1993-2005). We estimated daily atmospheric particulate matter (PM) (in three size fractions: PM2.5, PM2.5-10, and PM10) and nitr ..read more

PMID: 35455464 Abstract Title:  Evening Primrose Oil Improves Chemotherapeutic Effects in Human Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma Cell Lines-A Preclinical Study. Abstract:  Evening Primrose oil (EPO), obtained from the seeds of Evening Primrose (L.), is largely used as a dietary supplement, especially after cancer diagnosis. Human pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is an aggressive disease correlated with poor clinical prognosis and a very low response rate to common chemotherapy. The aim of this work was ..read more

PMID:  Medicines (Basel). 2022 Dec 29 ;10(1). Epub 2022 Dec 29. PMID: 36662488 Abstract Title:  DNA Damage as a Mechanistic Link between Air Pollution and Obesity? Abstract:  It has been shown that the risk of developing obesity, a serious modern health problem, increases with air pollution. However, the molecular links are yet to be fully elucidated. Herein, we propose a hypothesis via which air pollution-induced DNA damage would be the mechanistic link between air pollution and the enhanced risk of obesity and overweight. Indeed, whereas air pollution leads to DNA damage, DNA ..read more
