Background: Fine particulate matter has been linked with systemic inflammatory responses. It is hypothesized that smaller particles confer higher toxicity. The aim is to analyze lag structure and shape of the association between short-term exposure to ultrafine and fine particles and systemic inflammation.[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
