- Within- and between-city contrasts in nitrogen dioxide and mortality in 10 Canadian cities; a subset of the Canadian Census Health and Environment Cohort (CanCHEC). Crouse, Dan L; Peters, Paul A; Villeneuve, Paul J; Proux, Marc-Olivier; Shin, Hwashin H; Goldberg, Mark S; Johnson, Markey; Wheeler, Amanda J; Allen, Ryan W; Atari, Dominic Odwa; Jerrett, Michael; Brauer, Michael; Brook, Jeffrey R; Cakmak, Sabit; Burnett, Richard T // Journal of Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology;Sep/Oct2015, Vol. 25 Issue 5, p482
The independent and joint effects of within- and between-city contrasts in air pollution on mortality have been investigated rarely. To examine the differential effects of between- versus within-city contrasts in pollution exposure, we used both ambient measurements and land use regression...

- Community Surveillance of Stroke in Persons under 70 Years Old: Contribution of Uncontrolled Hypertension. Barker, William H.; Feldt, Karen S.; Feibel, John H. // American Journal of Public Health;Mar1983, Vol. 73 Issue 3, p260
Abstract: In 1979, a community-wide hospital surveillance system was established in Monroe County, New York (population 702,000), to investigate the continuing contribution of uncontrolled high blood pressure (HBP) to the occurrence o[ stroke. This paper reports findings among 200 consecutive...
- Vascular health, diabetes, APOE and dementia: the Aging, Demographics, and Memory Study. Llewellyn, David J.; Lang, Iain A.; Matthews, Fiona E.; Plassman, Brenda L.; Rogers, Mary A. M.; Morgenstern, Lewis B.; Fisher, Gwenith G.; Kabeto, Mohammed U.; Langa, Kenneth M. // Alzheimer's Research & Therapy;2010, Vol. 2 Issue 3, p1

- Reducing the risk of stroke in type 2 diabetes: pathophysiological and therapeutic perspectives. Sander, Dirk; Kearney, Mark T. // Journal of Neurology;Oct2009, Vol. 256 Issue 10, p1603
Reducing the excess cerebrovascular burden in patients with type 2 diabetes remains a major therapeutic challenge, especially with respect to the high risk of recurrent events. Targeting the traditional metabolic risk factors of hypertension, dyslipidemia, and hyperglycemia has failed to remove...
