  1. External Environmental Pollution as a Risk Factor for Asthma

    CLINICAL REVIEWS IN ALLERGY & IMMUNOLOGY, v.62, n.1, Special Issue, p.72-89, 2022

    Air pollution is a worrisome risk factor for global morbidity and mortality and plays a special role in many respiratory conditions. It contributes to around 8 million deaths/year, with outdoor exposure being responsible for more than 4.2 million deaths throughout the world, while more than 3.8 m...

  2. Annotating unknown species of urban microorganisms on a global scale unveils novel functional diversity and local environment association

    ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, v.207, article ID 112183, 11p, 2022

    In urban ecosystems, microbes play a key role in maintaining major ecological functions that directly support human health and city life. However, the knowledge about the species composition and functions involved in urban environments is still limited, which is largely due to the lack of referen...

  3. Assessing the impact of urban environment and green infrastructure on mental health: results from the Sao Paulo Megacity Mental Health Survey


    Background Different land cover types in cities, including green areas, have impacts on mental health. Few studies, however, have been conducted in megacities in low-/middle-income countries, which have extremely complex urban arrangements. Objective We analyzed land cover using the population da...

  4. Occurrence and spatial distribution of triatomines (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) in the urban area of the municipality of Montes Claros, Northern Minas Gerais, Brazil

    ZOONOSES AND PUBLIC HEALTH, v.69, n.2, p.83-94, 2022

    The north of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais is classified as an area of high risk of vectorial transmission of Chagas disease (CD) or of reestablishing transmission in the home, but the Chagas disease control programme is disjointed. The study evaluated the occurrence, natural infection and ...

  5. Air pollution and high-intensity interval exercise: Implications to anti-inflammatory balance, metabolome and cardiovascular responses

    SCIENCE OF THE TOTAL ENVIRONMENT, v.809, article ID 151094, 12p, 2022

    High-intensity interval exercise (HIIE) is an effective non-pharmacological tool for improving physiological responses related to health. When HIIE is performed in urban centers, however, the exerciser is exposed to traffic-related air pollution (TRAP), which is associated with metabolic, anti-in...

  6. Air pollution influence on serum inflammatory interleukins: A prospective study in childhood-onset systemic lupus erythematous patients

    LUPUS, v.30, n.14, p.2268-2275, 2021

    Objective To assess the effect of individual exposure, in real-time, to traffic-related pollutants on serum interleukin levels of childhood-onset lupus erythematous systemic (c-SLE) patients. Methods A longitudinal and observational design was conducted in 12 repeated measures of serum samples an...

  7. Traffic-related air pollution and endurance exercise: Characterizing non-targeted serum metabolomics profiling

    ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION, v.291, article ID 118204, 7p, 2021

    Although the exposure to traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) has emerged as one of main problem worldwide to inhabitants' health in urban centers, its impact on metabolic responses during exercise is poorly understood. The aim of study was to characterize the profile of non-target serum metabolo...

  8. Proximity of schools to roads and students' academic performance: A cross-sectional study in the Federal District, Brazil

    ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, v.202, article ID 111770, 7p, 2021

    Investigations of the educational implications of children's exposure to air pollutants at school are crucial to enhance our understanding of the hazards for children. Most of the existing literature is based on studies performed in North America and Europe. Further investigation is required in l...

  9. Latin American cities with higher socioeconomic status are greening from a lower baseline: evidence from the SALURBAL project

    ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH LETTERS, v.16, n.10, article ID 104052, 10p, 2021

    The characteristics of urban green space have context-dependent associations with socioeconomic status (SES). Latin American cities provide a unique but understudied context to assess the green space-SES associations. We measured the quantity and quality of green space as greenness from satellite...

  10. Geoclimatic, demographic and socioeconomic characteristics related to dengue outbreaks in Southeastern Brazil: an annual spatial and spatiotemporal risk model over a 12-year period


    Dengue fever is re-emerging worldwide, however the reasons of this new emergence are not fully understood. Our goal was to report the incidence of dengue in one of the most populous States of Brazil, and to assess the high-risk areas using a spatial and spatio-temporal annual models including geo...
