محققان بیمارستان عمومی ماساچوست (MGH) در ایالات متحده ، اخیرا شناسایی کرده اند که ذرات ریز معلق با فعال سازی تولید سلول های التهابی در مغز استخوان ، تأثیر سوء بر سلامت قلب و عروق دارد و در نهایت هم منجر به التهاب عروق می شوند. این مطالعه نشان می دهد که ذرات ریز معلق میتوانند طیف وسیعی از تأثیرات مخرب را بر سلامتی داشته باشند و قرار گرفتن در معرضشان یک عامل خطر شناخته شده برای بیماری های قلبی عروقی است.
How Air Pollution May Rise Up CVD Risk Air pollution exposure as an underrecognized risk factor for cardiovascular disease

Air pollution.

The study indicates that tiny particles of air pollution — called fine particulate matter — can have a range of effects on health, and exposure to high levels is a known risk factor for cardiovascular disease. “The pathway linking air pollution exposure to cardiovascular events through higher bone marrow activity and arterial inflammation accounted for 29 percent of the relationship between air pollution and cardiovascular disease events,” said researcher Shady Abohashem from the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in the US.

“These findings implicate air pollution exposure as an underrecognized risk factor for cardiovascular disease and suggest therapeutic targets beyond pollution mitigation to lessen the cardiovascular impact of air pollution exposure,” Abohashem added. Air pollution can increase CVD risks.

The researchers estimated participants’ annual average fine particulate matter levels using air quality monitors located closest to each participant’s residential address.

Their risk was elevated even after accounting for cardiovascular risk factors, socioeconomic factors, and other key confounders, the researchers said. Imaging tests assessing the state of internal organs and tissues showed that these participants also had higher bone marrow activity, indicating a heightened production of inflammatory cells (a process called leukopoiesis), and elevated inflammation of the arteries. Additional analyses revealed that leukopoiesis in response to air pollution exposure is a trigger that causes arterial inflammation. (IANS
