Master thesis

1. Unilateral/clandestine solar geoengineering activity is a source of air pollution/particulate matter. (PM2.5)

2. The nanotoxicity, neurotoxicity, and genotoxicity of PM2.5 exposure on human health requires further investigations.

3. The differential effects of chronic PM2.5 exposure on the neuroimmune system, lung/brain axis, stress-induced neuroinflammation, and neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer, Parkinson) requires additional research. [1]

4. TLR4 activation is implicated in the dopaminergic neurotoxicity of chronic PM2.5 exposure. [2]

Differential pathophysiological effects of long-term exposure to PM2.5

Cardiovascular system

  • Effects of particulate matter (PM2.5) air pollution on cardiovascular diseases. [3]
    • Increase in blood pressure (hypertension) [4]
    • The association of annual air pollution exposure with blood pressure among patients with sleep-disordered breathing. [5]
  • Dysregulation of miRNA expression levels. [6]

Central nervous system

  • Alzheimer disease [7][8]
  • Parkinson disease [8]
  • PM2.5 exposure may cause chronic neuroinflammation and oxidative stress. [9][10][11][12]
  • PM2.5 exposure may induce selective neurotoxicity through glutamatergic signaling and increase NMDA-induced excitotoxicity. [10][13]
  • Cyclooxygenase-2, interleukin-1beta, and CD14 signaling upregulation. [14]
  • Microglia-mediated dopaminergic neurotoxicity. [8]
    • TLR4 signaling mediate microglial activation
