 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'European policy making is hampered by considerable uncertainty about the magnitude and nature of the impacts of long term exposure to air pollution on human health. ESCAPE is a collaboration of more than 30 European cohort studies including some 900,000 subjects. It is aimed at quantifying health impacts of air pollution and at reducing uncertainty. ESCAPE will also test new hypotheses on specific health effects of air pollution. ESCAPE will focus on effects of within-city, within-area and within-country contrasts in air pollution, and so will enable Europe to remain at the cutting edge worldwide for further development and application of methods which have been largely pioneered here. ESCAPE will make measurements of airborne particulate matter and nitrogen oxides in selected regions in Europe. It will measure the chemical composition of the collected particles and it will store samples for future chemical and toxicological analyses. Escape will focus on four categories of cohort studies: 1. Pregnancy outcome and birth cohort studies; 2. Studies on respiratory disease in adults; 3. Studies on cardiovascular disease in adults; 4. Studies on cancer incidence and mortality. ESCAPE responds to a specific FP7 call for a large collaborative project in the Environment and Health program. The call asks for research within existing cohorts among children as well as elderly adults as sensitive groups, and it asks to consider the role of other environmental exposures such as noise, and of biomarkers and gene-environment interactions. Whereas ESCAPE will focus, as requested, on air pollution and to a lesser extent traffic noise exposures, studies have been included which contain a wealth of data on other exposures (e.g., drinking water contaminants), on biomarkers and on genetics. ESCAPE will actively engage stakeholder organisations and policy makers so that results can be swiftly translated to support policy development and implementation.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

A study funded by the EU's FP7 Environment programme is using existing data to give scientists and policy makers a clearer picture of the health impacts of air pollution

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Knowledge of the long-term health effects of air pollution on European citizens is being significantly increased thanks to the efforts of the Escape project. Project partners are measuring airborne particulates and nitrogen oxides in selected European regions. The chemical composition of sampled particulates is also analysed. Escape researchers are using information from over 30 European cohort studies, assessing air pollution exposure assessment at country, city and right down to the individual home address level.

Scientists developed techniques for assessing long-term population exposure to air pollution and are applying these to four categories of the existing cohort studies. The initial category concerns the adverse effect of air pollution on pregnancy and the development of diseases such as asthma in children. The second group is investigating the relationship between long term exposure to air pollution and the prevalence of respiratory diseases like bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and adult asthma.

The third category is providing data about the effect of long term exposure to air pollution inducing inflammation and atherosclerosis and the risk of acute coronary artery disease events and the development of preventative strategies. The final category investigates the impact of air pollution on the incidence of cancer and mortality. Project partners also created a database for determining the health effects of long-term air pollution on the European population.

Escape is actively communicating with stakeholder organisations and policy makers to facilitate development of new policies and their implementation. The ultimate benefactors will be European citizens through improved health and environment.
