原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Our objective is to evaluate the association of exposure to traffic-related air pollution with the incidence of fatal and non-fatal ischemic heart disease (IHD), stroke and total cardiovascular disease (CVD) events in a Greek cohort. We used data from the European Prospective Investigation on Nutrition and Cancer (EPIC) for 2752 subjects followed from 1997 to 2011, whose residence was in 10 municipalities of the Greater Athens area. Air pollution exposure estimation was based on a spatio-temporal land use regression model linking geo-coded residential addresses to long-term average NO 2 and PM 10 concentrations. We conducted Cox proportional hazards regression analysis, adjusting for potential confounders. Hazard ratios (HR) above 1 (not all statistically significant) were...
