Special Issue "Air Pollution and Cardiopulmonary Health"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Environmental Health".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2019
Air pollution is a major environment-related risk factor for health across the world. The leading health outcome attributed to air pollution is cardiopulmonary effects, including respiratory infections, cardiovascular diseases, and lung cancer. The World Health Organization has announced that ambient air pollution contributed to 7.6% of all deaths in 2016. However, the mechanism linking air pollution to cardiopulmonary effects is largely unknown. Moreover, the studies of air pollution-related cardiopulmonary biomarkers, air pollution composition, and cardiopulmonary heath risk assessment, the association between air quality improvement and cardiopulmonary health promotion, and so on, are still limited. Therefore, we invite you to consider submitting your research for publication in this Special Issue of the journal, focusing on “Air Pollution and Cardiopulmonary Health”. The aim of this Special Issue is to communicate a selection of papers on the measurement, assessment, prevention, and intervention of air pollution induced cardiopulmonary effects among human subjects. In vitro and in vivo studies are also very welcome.
