(1) Background: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease with still unknown etiology. Some occupational and environmental risk factors have been suggested, including long-term air pollutant exposure. We carried out a pilot case-control study in order to evaluate ALS risk due to particulate matter with a diamete...

Background Exposure to air pollutants increases the risk of several chronic diseases, possibly including neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer's dementia. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the effect of long-term exposure to as major outdoor air pollutant, particulate matter ≤10μm (PM10), on the risk of dementia in a cohort of subjects with...

Background Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is fatal neurodegenerative disease with still unknown etiology. Some environmental and occupational risk factors have been proposed, including air pollution, as suggested by recent studies. We carried out a case-control study in order to assess ALS risk due to environmental exposure to particulate matt...
Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter provides a review, derived from the extended survey conducted within the APPRAISAL project, of the integrated assessment methodologies used in different countries to design air quality plans and to estimate the effects of emission abatement policy options on human health.
Article
Manganese (Mn) is both essential and toxic for humans, mainly depending on the total levels and its species. Main sources of exposure include food and air pollution, particularly motorized traffic. We sought to determine the potential influence of these sources on serum total levels of Mn and Mn species. We selected a random sample of municipality...

This chapter provides a review, derived from the extended survey conducted within the APPRAISAL project, of the integrated assessment methodologies used in different countries to design air quality plans and to estimate the effects of emission abatement policy options on human health. The final purpose of this review is to foster the dissemination...
Article
Introduction: Cadmium (Cd) is a heavy metal and a serious environmental hazard to humans. Some uncertainties still exist about major sources of Cd exposure in non-occupationally exposed subjects in addition to cigarette smoking, such as diet and outdoor air pollution. We sought to determine the influence of these sources on a biomarker of exposure...
Article
This study focuses on the environmental impact assessment of three different high efficiency residential pellet boilers manufactured by an Austrian company. A Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and an Environmental Life Cycle Costing (ELCC) analysis were performed, along with air quality modelling simulations for two EU case studies to evaluate CO, PM10, SO...

Benzene, a recognized occupational leukemogen in adults, has been hypothesized to also increase the risk of childhood leukemia. We carried out a population-based case–control study in a northern Italy community involving 83 cases with acute childhood leukemia diagnosed in the years 1998–2009 and 332 matched controls. We assessed residential exposur...
Article
We consider the problem of quantification of uncertainty associated with radionuclide transport processes within a randomly heterogeneous aquifer system in the context of performance assessment of a near-surface radioactive waste repository. Radionuclide migration is simulated at the repository scale through a Monte Carlo scheme. The saturated grou...
Article
Disposal facilities for radioactive wastes comprise a series of engineered and natural (geologic) barriers to contain the radionuclides until their radiation hazard has decreased to acceptable levels. It is required that the long-term functionality of the containment barriers be evaluated by a quantitative risk analysis, also termed performance ass...
