Table 2 Flow cytometry analysis of the association between PM10 exposure (Day −1) and cell-specific EV count, after adjustments for age, sex, BMI, smoking status, and apparent temperature

From: Extracellular vesicle-packaged miRNA release after short-term exposure to particulate matter is associated with increased coagulation

EV type Δ%a 95% CI P
CD61+ (platelets) 5.27 1.91; 8.73 0.0020
CD66+ (neutrophils) 1.94 −0.59; 4.54 0.1351
EpCAM+ (epithelium) 2.97 0.10; 5.93 0.0430
CD105+ (endothelium) 2.05 −0.22; 4.38 0.0776
CD14+ (macrophages/monocytes) 4.68 1.58; 7.87 0.0030
  1. aΔ% = (exp (β*10)-1)*100, percentage increase in EV count for each 10-μg/m3 increase in PM10 concentration
