A study of atherothrombotic biomarkers in welders

Authors: Ellingsen DG, Chashchin M, Seljeflot I, Berlinger B, Chashchin V, Stockfelt L, Thomassen Y INTRODUCTION: Studies have shown that welders have increased cardiovascular mortality. This may be due to airborne particulate matter (PM) exposure. Elevated levels of PM in polluted urban air have been associated with increased cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. This study seeks to explore potential mechanisms for the increased cardiovascular mortality in welders. METHODS: Seventy welders were compared to 74 referents. Exposure to PM was assessed by personal full-shift sampling of work room air the last 2 days before collection of blood samples. Selected biomarkers of pro-coagulant activ
