      Perez, Laura; Wolf, Kathrin; Hennig, Frauke; Penell, Johanna; Basagaña Flores, Xavier; Foraster, María; Aguilera, Inmaculada; Agis Cherta, David; Beelen, Rob; Brunekreef, Bert; Cyrys, Josef; Fuks, Kateryna B.; Adam, Martin; Baldassarre, Damiano; Cirach, Marta; Elosua, Roberto; Dratva, Julia; Hampel, Regina; Koenig, Wolfgang; Marrugat, Jaume; de Faire, Ulf; Pershagen, Göran; Probst-Hensch, Nicole M.; De Nazelle, Audrey; Nieuwenhuijsen, Mark J.; Rathmann, Wolfgang; Rivera, Marcela; Seissler, Jochen; Schindler, Christian; Thiery, Joachim; Hoffmann, Barbara; Peters, Annette; Künzli, Nino (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2015-06-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      In four European cohorts, we investigated the cross-sectional association between long-term exposure to air pollution and intima-media thickness of the common carotid artery (CIMT), a preclinical marker of atherosclerosi ...
    • Association between long-term exposure to traffic-related air pollution and subclinical atherosclerosis: the REGICOR study 

      Rivera, Marcela; Basagaña Flores, Xavier; Aguilera, Inmaculada; Foraster, María; Agis Cherta, David; de Groot, Eric; Perez, Laura; Mendez, Michelle A.; Bouso, Laura; Targa, Jaume; Ramos, Rafael; Sala, Joan; Marrugat, Jaume; Elosua, Roberto; Künzli, Nino (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2013-02-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Epidemiological evidence of the effects of long-term exposure to air pollution on the chronic processes of atherogenesis is limited. We investigated the association of long-term exposure to traffic-related air pollution ...
    • Association of long-term exposure to traffic-related air pollution with blood pressure and hypertension in an adult population-based cohort in Spain (the REGICOR study) 

      Foraster, María; Basagaña Flores, Xavier; Aguilera, Inmaculada; Rivera, Marcela; Agis Cherta, David; Bouso, Laura; Deltell, Alexandre; Marrugat, Jaume; Ramos, Rafel; Sunyer, Jordi; Vila, Joan; Elosua, Roberto; Künzli, Nino (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2014-04-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Background: Long-term exposure to traffic-related air pollution may increase blood pressure (BP) and induce hypertension. However, evidence supporting these associations is limited, and they may be confounded by exposure ...
    • Cross-sectional association between road traffic noise and hypertension in a population-based sample in Girona, Spain (REGICOR-AIR project) 

      Foraster, María; Basagaña Flores, Xavier; Aguilera, Inmaculada; Rivera, Marcela; Agis Cherta, David; Bouso, Laura; Deltell, Alexandre; Dratva, Julia; Juvinyà, Dolors; Sunyer, Jordi; Elosua, Roberto; Künzli, Nino (International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration, 2011)

    • Disentangling the effects of traffic-related noise and air pollution on blood pressure: indoor noise levels and protections 

      Foraster, María; Basagaña Flores, Xavier; Aguilera, Inmaculada; Rivera, Marcela; Agis Cherta, David; Bouso, Laura; Deltell, Alexandre; Elosua, Roberto; Künzli, Nino (2013)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Outdoor road traffic noise levels are associated with hypertension (HT). Studies on blood pressure (BP) are inconsistent and the true indoor traffic noise exposure may differ due to protections against noise. We analysed ...
    • High blood pressure and long-term exposure to indoor noise and air pollution from road traffic. 

      Foraster, María; Künzli, Nino; Aguilera, Inmaculada; Rivera, Marcela; Agis Cherta, David; Vila, Joan; Bouso, Laura; Deltell, Alexandre; Marrugat, Jaume; Ramos, Rafel; Sunyer, Jordi; Elosua, Roberto; Basagaña Flores, Xavier (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2014-11-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Traffic noise has been associated with prevalence of hypertension, but reports are inconsistent for blood pressure (BP). To ascertain noise effects and to disentangle them from those suspected to be from traffic-related ...
    • Measurement error in epidemiologic studies of air pollution based on land-use regression models 

      Basagaña Flores, Xavier; Aguilera, Inmaculada; Rivera, Marcela; Agis Cherta, David; Foraster, María; Marrugat, Jaume; Elosua, Roberto; Künzli, Nino (2013-10-15)
      Article
      Open Access
      Land-use regression (LUR) models are increasingly used to estimate air pollution exposure in epidemiologic studies. These models use air pollution measurements taken at a small set of locations and modeling based ...
    • Transportation noise (in particular railway noise) and blood pressure in REGICOR compared to SAPALDIA 

      Foraster, María; Basagaña Flores, Xavier; Aguilera, Inmaculada; Agis Cherta, David; Bouso, Laura; Phuleria, Harish; Dratva, Julia; Probst-Hensch, Nicole; Schindler, Christian; Künzli, Nino; Elosua, Roberto; Rivera, Marcela; Deltell, Alexandre (2012)
