Abstract Background Studies on air pollution and depression in the elderly are limited and the results are heterogeneous. Objectives We examined the association of ambient air pollution exposure and diagnosis and symptoms of depression in the elderly; and whether any associations were confounded or modified by cognitive decline. Methods We enrolled 821 elderly women from the German SALIA cohort (follow-up examination, 2007–2010). Self-reported depressive symptoms and level of cognition were eval...

The detrimental effects of traffic noise on cognition in children are well documented. Not much is known about the health effects in adults. We investigated the association of residential exposure to road traffic noise and annoyance due to road traffic noise with cognitive function in a cohort of 288 elderly women from the longitudinal Study on the influence of Air pollution on Lung function, Inflammation and Aging (SALIA) in Germany. Residential noise levels—weighted 24-h mean (LDEN) and nightt...

Abstract During the last two decades, it has been well established that a short-term exposure to ozone (O3) elicits an oxidative stress response in human and mouse skin, which leads to aberrant transcriptional expression of genes consistent with increased skin aging. Whether a long-term exposure to ambient O3 is associated with any skin aging traits, has remained unclear. We addressed this question in two elderly German cohorts: the SALIA study (806 women aged 66–79 years), and the BASE-II study...

Background Although many risk factors have been described for atopic eczema in children, little is known about the eczema phenotype in middle-aged or elderly adults. Objective We sought to examine the association between air pollution, atopy, and eczema in adulthood. Methods This analysis was based on 834 women from the Study on the influence of Air pollution on Lung Function, Inflammation and Ageing cohort in Germany. Incident symptoms of eczema after age 55 years and prevalent symptoms of ecze...

Introduction: We have recently reported a positive association of high levels of tropospheric ozone (O3) with extrinsic skin aging in the Berlin Aging Study II (BASE-II). In the current analysis, w...

Background/aim Numerous epidemiological studies have shown effects of long-term exposure to air pollution on cardiovascular, respiratory and cognitive health. However, studies investigating the effects of air pollution on depressive symptoms are limited and results are conflicting. We aimed to examine the association between long-term exposure to ambient air pollution and depressive symptoms in elderly women. Methods Our analyses were based on 821 women (age ≥65 years) living in the Ruhr area an...
