For NO 2 we found an odds ratio of 1.14 (95% CI, 0.78-1.67) for each increment of 10 lg/m 3 , and an odds ratio of 1.30 (1.02-1.66) for concentrations greater than 30 lg/m 3 . The association with NO 2 did not change after adjustment by cotinine and additional potential confounders, including occupational exposures. No clear association was found with other pollutants.
