1. Glynn A, et al. (2008). This hypothesis generating study suggests that background exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls and Dichlorodiphenyl Dichloroethylene early in life modulate immune system development. 2,2',3',4,4',5-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,3,3',4,4',5-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,3,3',4,4'-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,4,4'-trichlorobiphenyl | 2,4,5,2',4',5'-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,4,5,2',5'-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,5,2',5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl | Dichlorodiphenyl Dichloroethylene | PCB 180 | Polychlorinated Biphenyls Infants or newborns | Mothers | Pregnant females Sweden milk, human | serum 2,2',3',4,4',5-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,3,3',4,4',5-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,3,3',4,4'-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,4,4'-trichlorobiphenyl | 2,4,5,2',4',5'-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,4,5,2',5'-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,5,2',5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl | Dichlorodiphenyl Dichloroethylene | PCB 180 Details Respiratory Tract Infections | immune system development
2. Dallaire F, et al. (2004). These results show a possible association between prenatal exposure to organochlorines and acute infections early in life in this Inuit population. 2,4,5,2',4',5'-hexachlorobiphenyl | Dichlorodiphenyl Dichloroethylene | Hydrocarbons, Chlorinated Infants or newborns | Mothers Canada plasma 2,4,5,2',4',5'-hexachlorobiphenyl | Dichlorodiphenyl Dichloroethylene | Hydrocarbons, Chlorinated Details Gastrointestinal Diseases | Otitis Media | Respiratory Tract Infections
3. Liu X, et al. (2012). Our results are consistent with the hypothesis that exposure to air pollution from fuel-fired power plants and volatile compounds coming from hazardous waste sites increases the risk of hospitalization for respiratory diseases. Air Pollutants Study subjects United States Air Pollutants Details Asthma | Pulmonary Disease, Chronic Obstructive | Respiratory Tract Infections
4. Raqib R, et al. (2009). Maternal and Infant Nutrition Interventions in Matlab (MINIMat) The findings suggest that in utero arsenic exposure impaired child thymic development and enhanced morbidity (probably via immunosuppression), and the effect seemed to be partially gender dependent; arsenic exposure also affected breast milk content of trophic factors and maternal morbidity. sex Arsenicals | Arsenic Infants or newborns | Pregnant females Bangladesh urine Arsenicals Details Diarrhea | Fever | Prenatal Exposure Delayed Effects | Respiratory Tract Infections | interleukin-7 production | thymus development
5. Rahman A, et al. (2011). Maternal and Infant Nutrition Interventions in Matlab (MINIMat) Our results show that the mothers' education, socioeconomic status, and body mass index were associated with urinary arsenic concentrations, and that arsenic exposure in pregnancy increases the risk of lower respiratory tract infection and diarrhea during infancy in Bangladesh. body mass index | socioeconomic status Arsenicals | Arsenic Infants or newborns | Pregnant females Bangladesh urine Arsenicals Details Diarrhea, Infantile | Prenatal Exposure Delayed Effects | Respiratory Tract Infections
6. Farzan SF, et al. (2013). New Hampshire Birth Cohort Study (NHBCS) Our results provide initial evidence that in utero arsenic exposure may be related to infant infection and severity and provide insight into the early life impacts of fetal arsenic exposure. Arsenicals | Arsenic Infants or newborns | Pregnant females United States urine | water, drinking Arsenicals | Arsenic Details Prenatal Exposure Delayed Effects | Respiratory Tract Infections
7. Farzan SF, et al. (2016). New Hampshire Birth Cohort Study (NHBCS) In utero arsenic exposure was associated with a higher risk of infection during the first year of life in our study population, particularly infections requiring medical treatment, and with diarrhea and respiratory symptoms. age Arsenic Infants or newborns | Pregnant females United States urine | water, drinking Arsenicals | Arsenic Details Cough | Diarrhea, Infantile | Fever | Infection | Respiratory Sounds
8. Estrella B, et al. (2005). Our findings provide strong evidence of the relation between carbon monoxide exposure and susceptibility to respiratory infections. Carbon Monoxide Children Ecuador Details Respiratory Tract Infections
9. Szyszkowicz M, et al. (2010). Increase in concentration of ambient ground-level ozone was associated with increased hazard of emergency department visit for cellulites in distinct age groups and in characteristic environmental conditions enhancing ozone potency. Ozone Canada air Ozone Details Cellulitis
10. Strickland MJ, et al. (2016). We observed associations between daily particulate matter <=2.5 microns concentrations and pediatric emergency department visits for asthma or wheeze and for upper respiratory infections. Particulate Matter Children United States Particulate Matter Details Asthma | Respiratory Sounds | Respiratory Tract Infections
11. Naumova EN, et al. (2007). The study has demonstrated strong relationship between ash exposure and respiratory effects in children. Particulate Matter | Silicon Dioxide | Sulfur Children Ecuador Details Respiratory Tract Infections
12. Koch A, et al. (2003). The present study is the first population-based prospective study of risk factors for acute respiratory infections in Inuit children based on active surveillance. socioeconomic status | tobacco Tobacco Smoke Pollution Children Greenland Details Respiratory Tract Infections
