NIEHS Lecture: 認識病態建築診斷篩檢工具–QEESI問診表

我們幾乎有8成的時間是在室內活動,因此室內環境品質的優劣影響了我們的健康,也影響了工作效率。人體可以經由健檢知道健康狀況,那麼房子呢?房子也有辦法進行健康檢查嗎?如何進行房子的健檢?我們特別邀請正修科技大學建築與室內設計系黃琳琳助理教授,於12月14日星期二上午10:30於R1-B1222演講廳,介紹病態建築診斷篩檢工具,歡迎有興趣的同仁參加。

(預告) <strong>NIEHS Lecture:</strong>奈米微粒及細微粒的檢測方法及應用

(預告) NIEHS Lecture:奈米微粒及細微粒的檢測方法及應用

2021年WHO對於PM2.5發佈新的空氣品質目標,日均及年均濃度目標值均降低很多,且建議進行奈米微粒的監測及毒性研究。然而,因為受到環境條件及微粒成份的影響,現有的奈米微粒及細微粒的採樣及監測方法仍有改善之空間,在低濃度及高溼度環境下的準確度的挑戰更大。特別邀請國立陽明交通大學環境工程研究所蔡春進講座教授,於12月28日上午10:30於R1-B1222演講廳分享,奈米微粒與細微粒濾紙採樣、及自動監測的現存問題,以及相關的研究成果說明,期望有助於空品的了解及改善。歡迎有興趣的同仁們共同參與!

Integrated analysis of source-specific risks for PM<sub>2.5</sub>-bound metals in urban, suburban, rural, and industrial areas
 
Integrated analysis of source-specific risks for PM2.5-bound metals in urban, suburban, rural, and industrial areas
We found that the concentrations of Fe, Zn, V, Cu, and Mn (industry-related metals) were higher at the industrial site (Kaohsiung) and Ba, Cr, Ni, Mo, and Co (traffic-related metals) were higher at the urban site (Taipei). The rural site (Hualian) had good air quality, with low PM2.5 and metal concentrations. Most metal concentrations were higher during the cold season for all study sites, except for the rural.
Exposure profiles of workers from indium tin oxide target manufacturing and recycling factories in Taiwan
 
Exposure profiles of workers from indium tin oxide target manufacturing and recycling factories in Taiwan
Indium tin oxide exposure poses a potential health risk, but the exposure assessment in occupational setting remains incomplete and continues to be a significant challenge. The varying levels of relationship noted between indium exposure and the levels of P–In and U–In among workers with different work types suggested that setting the exposure limits among different work types is warranted.
Association between arsenic exposure, DNA damage, and urological cancers incidence: A long-term follow-up study of residents in an arseniasis endemic area of northeastern Taiwan
 
Association between arsenic exposure, DNA damage, and urological cancers incidence: A long-term follow-up study of residents in an arseniasis endemic area of northeastern Taiwan
In 2018, bladder and kidney cancers were the 14th and 17th leading causes of global cancer mortality, respectively. Our aim was to investigate the association between arsenic exposure, DNA damage, and the incidence of bladder and kidney cancers.
Maternal proximity to petrochemical industrial parks and risk of premature rupture of membranes
 
Maternal proximity to petrochemical industrial parks and risk of premature rupture of membranes
The results of the present work provide evidence that living near petrochemical industrial parks (PIPs) during pregnancy would increase the risk of premature rupture of membranes (PROM), and additional studies are warranted to confirm our findings.
Lipid peroxidation metabolites associated with biomarkers of inflammation and oxidation stress in workers handling carbon nanotubes and metal oxide nanoparticles
 
Lipid peroxidation metabolites associated with biomarkers of inflammation and oxidation stress in workers handling carbon nanotubes and metal oxide nanoparticles
These results provided evidence that exposure to nano-TiO2, nano-SiO2, and CNTs may lead to lipid peroxidation in EBC. For routine biomonitoring purposes, this finding, which came through non-invasive methods, may be useful for workers exposed to nanomaterials (NMs).
Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor is Essential in the Control of Lung Club Cell Homeostasis
 
Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor is Essential in the Control of Lung Club Cell Homeostasis
Club cells play an important role in maintaining lung homeostasis and aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) is known to be important in xenobiotic metabolism, but its role in regulating club cells is currently unknown. Under the condition of pulmonary inflammation, AhR is critical in controlling lung club cell homeostasis via targeting Notch1 signaling and the generation of anti-inflammatory mediators.
