The objective of this project was to demonstrate the effects on the cardiovascular system of NO2 alone or as a mixture with other gaseous pollutants emitted by a Euro 4 Diesel engine equipped with a particulate filter. The pollutant emissions, diluted by a factor of 11, were taken upstream and downstream of the particulate filter to assess its impact.

The work was organized around four main tasks:

  1. exposure of animals (Wistar rats) and characterization of Euro 4 diesel engine emissions,
  2. evaluation of cardiac and mitochondrial function,
  3. evaluation of cardiac remodeling
  4. evaluation of the global and genome-wide cellular response.
The results are presented and analyzed by considering single (3 hours) or repeated (3 hours / days and 5 days / week for three weeks) exposures to NO2 or all pollutants.
