Short-term effects of ambient oxidant exposure on mortality: a combined analysis within the APHEA
(78) The careful reader would also find Poliphilo's mental apostrophe to Polia, beginning: "0 delicate maiden," familiar as a paraphrase of his earlier outburst to Aphea
, the nymph of the sense of touch.
AEGINA, 16 miles south-west of Athens, forms part of the Saronic island group and includes attractions from the bustling port in Aegin town and the archaeological site at the temple of Aphea
to the lively resort of Aghia Marina.
This supplement was devoted to results of a large collaborative research project on the effects of air pollution on human health (The APHEA
Short-term effects of ambient sulphur dioxide and particulate matter on mortality in 12 European cities: results from time series data from the APHEA
The Agency for Public Health Education Accreditation (APHEA
) study of 29 European cities  can be one of the examples.
The principal multicity effort has probably been Air Pollution and Health--A European Approach (APHEA
), a study in which relations between several pollutants and morbidity and mortality have been analyzed with data from several large and largely industrialized European cities (Katsouyanni et al., 1996).
