NIEHS's Nyska Honored

NIEHS's Dr. Abraham Nyska, from the Laboratory of Experimental Pathology, coauthored the paper selected for the Best Paper Award by Toxicological Sciences, the official journal of the Society of Toxicology. The study was a collaboration between NIEHS, EPA and Harvard University School of Public Health. It looked at the relationship between air pollutants and illness or death from heart disease and found that heart injury occurred in animals exposed to particulate matter during regular intervals over a long period of time. According to a press release issued by the EPA, the study is part of a major EPA research initiative to better understand the effects of particulate matter on susceptible populations such as the elderly and young. EPA's Urmila Kodavanti is the paper's lead author and accepted the award on behalf of all authors at the society's annual meeting Mar. 21.
