Barrera L, Millett C, Blangiardo M, Pape UJ, Majeed Aet al., 2012, Differences in the classification of hypertensive controlled patient in primary care: Cross sectional study., JRSM Short Rep, Vol: 3

OBJECTIVES: To examine differences in blood pressure control using the 2006 National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines and the 2007 Quality and Outcome Framework (QOF) standards. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: 28 general practices located in Wandsworth, London. PARTICIPANTS: Hypertensive patients aged 17 years and over. MAIN OUTCOMES MEASURES: Percentage of hypertensive patients classified as a hypertensive controlled patient (HCP) by each standard. RESULTS: 79.5% of patients were classified as a HCP by the QOF target and 60.7% by the NICE target. 93% and 14% of practices had more than 70% of patients classified as a HPC by using the QOF and NICE targets respectively. By applying the QOF target, men aged 45-64 years and 65 years and over had significantly higher probability of being classified as a HCP compared to those aged 17-44 years, OR 1.34 (1.08-.165) and OR 2.15 (1.61-2.87) respectively. Regardless of the target, for men the probability of being classified as a HCP increased with age. CONCLUSION: Better achievement of blood pressure control targets is present when the less stringent QOF target is used. Men aged 65 years and over were more likely to be classified as a HCP. Greater consistency is needed between the clinical targets in QOF and NICE guidance.

Carreras G, Chellini E, Blangiardo M, 2012, A Bayesian model for studying urban air pollution and respiratory symptoms in children, International Journal of Environment and Health, Vol: 6, Pages: 125-140, ISSN: 1743-4955

The association between traffic-related air pollution and long-term respiratory health problems has been extensively studied. In this work we evaluated the effect of traffic-related air pollution on respiratory symptoms in children living in Florence, Italy. Children were selected from different schools part of the Italian Studies on Respiratory Disorders in Children and the Environment 2. Exposure to traffic air pollution was assessed through a dispersion model and weighted by distance using four different criteria. A Bayesian hierarchical logistic regression model was specified to assess the impact of traffic air pollution on cough or phlegm and asthma. Potential confounders were included in the analysis. Familiarity of asthma and exposure to second-hand smoking showed the strongest positive association with respiratory symptoms. No evidence of increasing risk of asthma with urban air pollution was found, while some evidence of an association was observed for carbon dioxide and cough or phlegm.

Mustapha BA, Blangiardo M, Briggs DJ, Hansell ALet al., 2011, Traffic Air Pollution and Other Risk Factors for Respiratory Illness in Schoolchildren in the Niger-Delta Region of Nigeria, Environmental Health Perspectives, Vol: 119, Pages: 1478-1482, ISSN: 0091-6765

Background: Association of childhood respiratory illness with traffic air pollution has beeninvestigated largely in developed but not in developing countries, where pollution levels are oftenvery high.Objectives: In this study we investigated associations between respiratory health and outdoor andindoor air pollution in schoolchildren 7–14 years of age in low socioeconomic status areas in theNiger Delta.Methods: A cross-sectional survey was carried out among 1,397 schoolchildren. Exposure to homeoutdoor and indoor air pollution was assessed by self-report questionnaire. School air pollutionexposures were assessed using traffic counts, distance of schools to major streets, and particulatematter and carbon monoxide measurements, combined using principal components analysis.Hierarchical logistic regression was used to examine associations with reported respiratory health,adjusting for potential confounders.Results: Traffic disturbance at home (i.e., traffic noise and/or fumes evident inside the homevs. none) was associated with wheeze [odds ratio (OR) = 2.16; 95% confidence interval (CI),1.28–3.64], night cough (OR = 1.37; 95% CI, 1.03–1.82), phlegm (OR = 1.49; 95% CI,1.09–2.04), and nose symptoms (OR = 1.40; 95% CI, 1.03–1.90), whereas school exposure to acomponent variable indicating exposure to fine particles was associated with increased phlegm (OR= 1.38; 95% CI, 1.09–1.75). Nonsignificant positive associations were found between cooking withwood/coal (OR = 2.99; 95% CI, 0.88–10.18) or kerosene (OR = 2.83; 95% CI, 0.85–9.44) andphlegm compared with cooking with gas.Conclusion: Traffic pollution is associated with respiratory symptoms in schoolchildren in adeprived area of western Africa. Associations may have been underestimated because of nondifferentialmisclassification resulting from limitations in exposure measurement.
