 Mean effects (95% CI)* of PM2.5 exposure on baseline to 24 hours post-baseline changes in levels of systemic inflammatory markers

Crude modelAdjusted model†
*The coefficient is expressed as the change in the systemic inflammatory marker per 1 mg/m3 incremental change in PM2.5 concentration from the previous day.
†Models adjusted for centred age and smoking status.
