Effects of pollution exposure: Supporting medical research teams.

Scientific research on chronic diseases is multiplying to find their origins, to set up prevention tools and adapted therapeutic strategies. 

The WHO confirms that a large proportion of chronic diseases are caused by environmental pollution.

This pollution acts as a trigger for a genetic predisposition and initiates the development of pathological processes. 

  •     Diabetes.
  •     Cardiovascular diseases.
  •     Liver and kidney disorders.
  •     Cancers: carcinogenic substances.
  •     Neurological disorders: neurotoxic substances.
  •     Asthma and allergies: volatile organic compounds.
  •     Endocrine diseases: hormone disruptors.

Chronic exposure to a cocktail of chemical substances composed of heavy metals and organic pollutants such as plasticisers, pesticides, flame retardants, etc. is recognised as having a proven impact on health in the short, medium and long term. 

Knowledge of the exposome provides researchers with scientific evidence to establish the links between exposure to pollution and its effects on health. 

  •     Research in epidemiology.
  •     Research in cancer and oncology.
  •     Research in endocrinology.
  •     Research in paediatrics.
  •     Research in occupational health and occupational pathologies.
  •     Research in pneumology and allergology.
  •     Research in neurology.

EXPOZOM proposes to measure exposure to pollutants in our daily environment: 

  •     Biological analyses to measure the contamination of the body by heavy metals, pesticides, plasticizers and flame retardants. 
  •     Environmental analyses to measure ambient air pollution by volatile organic compounds (VOCs) 

Why measure the exposome? 

  •     To assess the health risks of exposure to pollution. 
  •     To identify the pollutants potentially responsible for chronic diseases. 
  •     To identify risk factors for chronic diseases. 
  •     To highlight field observations. 
  •     Characterise occupational diseases. 
  •     Understand the causes of asthma and pulmonary pathologies. 
  •     Carry out pre-conception monitoring. 
  •      To evaluate the effects on the embryo and the foetus. 
  •     Preventing congenital and endocrine diseases. 
  •     Preventing reproductive disorders. 
  •     To study the links between a pathology and environmental pollution.
