Abstract

Particulate matter (PM) air pollution has significant cardiopulmonary health effects. Serum biomarkers may elucidate the disease mechanisms involved and provide a means for biomonitoring exposed populations, thereby enabling accurate policy decisions on air quality standards to be made. For this review, research investigating association of blood serum biomarkers and exposure to PM was identified, finding 26 different biomarkers that were significantly associated with exposure. Recent evidence links different effects to different components of PM. Future research on biomarkers of effect will need to address exposure by all PM size fractions.
