Abstract
To study the relationship between exposure to airborne particles in a pulp and paper mill and markers of inflammation and coagulation in blood.
Personal sampling of inhalable dust was performed for 72 subjects working in a Swedish pulp and paper mill. Stationary measurements were used to study concentrations of total dust, respirable dust, PM10 and PM2.5, the particle surface area and the particle number concentrations. Markers of inflammation, interleukins (IL-1b, IL-6, IL-8, and IL-10), C-reactive protein (CRP), serum amyloid A (SAA), and fibrinogen and markers of coagulation factor VIII, von Willebrand, plasminogen activator inhibitor, and D-dimer were measured in plasma or serum. Sampling was performed on the last day of the work free period of 5 days, before and after the shift the first day of work and after the shifts the second and third day. In a mixed model analysis, the relationship between particulate exposures and inflammatory markers was determined. Sex, age, smoking, and BMI were included as covariates.
The average 8-h time-weighted average (TWA) air concentration levels of inhalable dust were 0.30 mg/m(3), range 0.005-3.3 mg/m(3). The proxies for average 8-h TWAs of respirable dust were 0.045 mg/m(3). Significant and consistent positive relations were found between several exposure metrics (PM 10, total and inhalable dust) and CRP, SAA and fibrinogen taken post-shift, suggesting a dose-effect relationship.
This study supports a relationship between occupational particle exposure and established inflammatory markers, which may indicate an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Abstract
Both road traffic noise and air pollution have been linked to cardiovascular disease. However, there are few prospective epidemiological studies available where both road traffic noise and air pollution have been analyzed simultaneously. The aim of this study was to investigate the relation between road traffic noise, air pollution and incident myocardial infarction in both current (1-year average) and medium-term (3-year average) perspective.
This study was based on a stratified random sample of persons aged 18-80 years who answered a public health survey in Skåne, Sweden, in 2000 (n = 13,512). The same individuals received a repeated survey in 2005 and 2010. Diagnoses of myocardial infarction (MI) were obtained from medical records for both inpatient and outpatient specialized care. The endpoint was first MI during 2000-2010. Participants with prior myocardial infarction were excluded at baseline. Yearly average levels of noise (L DEN) and air pollution (NO x ) were estimated using geographic information system for residential address every year until censoring.
The mean exposure levels for road traffic noise and air pollution in 2005 were L DEN 51 dB(A) and NO x 11 µg/m(3), respectively. After adjustment for individual confounders (age, sex, body mass index, smoking, education, alcohol consumption, civil status, year, country of birth and physical activity), a 10-dB(A) increase in current noise exposure did not increase the incidence rate ratio (IRR) for MI, 0.99 (95 % CI 0.86-1.14). Neither did a 10-µg/m(3) increase in current NO x increase the risk of MI, 1.02 (95 % CI 0.86-1.21). The IRR for MI associated with combined exposure to road traffic noise >55 dB(A) and NO x >20 µg/m(3) was 1.21 (95 % CI 0.90-1.64) compared to

Abstract
The association between exposure during handling of sewage and compost and the serum concentration of inflammatory biomarkers was studied.
A total of 44 workers exposed to sewage dust, 47 workers exposed to compost dust and 38 referents from the administrative staff participated. Microbial aerosols were collected by personal inhalable samplers. The concentrations of bacterial cells, spores from fungi and bacteria (actinomycetes) and endotoxins were determined by fluorescence and scanning electron microscopy and the Limulus assay. Fibrinogen, D-dimer, ICAM-1, VCAM-1 and IL-6 were determined by ELISA and C-reactive protein (CRP) by HS-MicroCRP assay in blood samples collected post-shift.
The exposure to dust ranged from 0.02 to 11 mg/m(3), endotoxins from 1 to 3160 EU/m(3) and bacteria from 0 to 209 × 10(6) cells/m(3). Fungal (0-41 × 10(6) spores/m(3)) and actinomycetes spores (0-590 × 10(6) actinomycetes spores/m(3)) were observed only at compost plants. The exposed workers had significantly higher fibrinogen (arithmetic mean 3.3 mg/ml) and CRP (geometric mean 1.5 mg/L) compared to the referents (2.8 and 1.0 mg/L, respectively). The serum concentration of CRP was negatively associated with forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) in  % of predicted. Exposure to inhalable dust and bacteria was positively associated with the serum concentration of ICAM-1.
This study suggests that exposure to bacteria and dust when handling sewage and compost may initiate an inflammation shown by an increase in serum concentration of ICAM-1. The higher concentrations of fibrinogen and CRP in exposed workers compared to the referents may reflect a low-grade systemic inflammation.

Abstract
In Canada, food insecurity is much higher among Aboriginal households than non-Aboriginal households and is especially pronounced in northern and isolated communities. The First Nations Food, Nutrition and Environment Study (FNFNES) found that 41% of on-reserve British Columbia First Nations households. were food insecure in 2008-2009 and that 38% of onreserve Manitoba First Nations households were food insecure in 2010. These prevalence rates are more than 5 times higher than those found among non-Aboriginal households in both provinces in the 2007-2008 Canadian Community Health Survey (1 ,2). Across the Canadian Arctic in 2007- 2008, 63% of Inuit households were found to be food insecure, with almost half (29%) severely food insecure (3).

Abstract
The stakeholder engagement process frequently documents community concern over the potential project-related impacts to subsistence activities (1). Potential impacts included changes to quantity, quality (actual and perceived) and access to subsistence resources. The environmental impact assessment process typically develops detailed subsistence resource maps that focus on geography (resource footprint versus the project footprint) and density (the quantity of the resource within a defined footprint). Community harvesting practices are often assessed. Social impact assessment work, including "traditional and local knowledge" surveys is an equally important tool that contributes to the critical role of subsistence activities in local communities. However, while both the environmental and social surveys are useful for the health impact assessment (2), we have found that these data are potentially insufficient for fully analysing and categorising potential human health impacts from large extractive industry projects (3).

Abstract
Despite the use in Canada of whole cell vaccines since the 1940s and acellular vaccines since the mid-1990s, pertussis remains a disease of considerable importance. In recent years, rates of pertussis have reached epidemic proportions in some North American jurisdictions (1), involving significant morbidity and public health expenditures. Canadian Aboriginal populations experience rates of pertussis more than double that of the general population. Socio-economic, environmental and biologic factors may contribute to this increased risk; however, whether vaccine responses are altered in Aboriginal infants is undetermined because vaccine studies rarely focus on this population. We report one of the first Canadian studies to assess the vaccine responses of Aboriginal infants.

Abstract
The Old Crow H pylori Project aims to investigate the disease burden related to H. pylori infection and identify strategies for reducing health-related risks. This project was designed and conducted in collaboration with a local planning committee and includes 6 main components: surveys of health and socio-environmental factors, urea breath test (UBT) screening for H pylori infection, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, treatment, knowledge exchange and policy development.

Abstract
From an infectious disease perspective, we live in a borderless world. In a span of hours, globalisation brings together people, animals and cargo that were once thousands of miles apart. Residents of the state of Alaska know this well, as the state receives international passengers and goods by air, land and sea. An inevitable consequence of modern transportation in Alaska - and elsewhere - is that it brings large numbers of people together in close proximity, thereby increasing the risk of spread of pathogens. This abstract is an overview of border public health emergency preparedness and response activities in Alaska, and a call for additional planning among the Circumpolar Region member states of Canada, Denmark, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the United States and Russia.
