Atmospheric Particulate Matter, Oxidative Stress and Health Effects

Abstract: The Southeastern Center for Air Pollution and Epidemiology (SCAPE) was developed through funding by the US EPA Clean Air Research Centers and involved a collaboration between the Emory School of Public Health and Georgia Institute of Technology. The aim of the Center was to better understand air pollution health effects by focusing on air pollution mixtures. One aspect of SCAPE for characterizing and assessing health effects of mixtures was the development of new automated methods for measuring aerosol oxidative potential (OP), an integrative and potentially physiologically relevant aerosol parameter. In this study, sources and atmospheric processes that contributed to OP were determined. The measures of OP were then merged with the large existing Atlanta historical air quality and health data sets to test associations with various health endpoints through large population epidemiological studies, and results compared to associations found for traditional air quality parameters. This talk will present the OP findings from SCAPE and assess the potential value of these relatively new measures of aerosol toxicity.
