Zinc-finger protein X-linked (ZFX), a novel transcription factor required for self-renewal of embryonic stem cells, has recently been implicated in the initiation and progression of various human malignancies. However, its clinical significance in cancer patients remains largely inconclusive and its role in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) has never been(More)
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is independently associated with dyslipidemia. Previous studies have demonstrated that sleep fragmentation can impair lipid metabolism. The present study aimed to identify whether sleep fragmentation is independently associated with dyslipidemia, in a large-scale, clinic-based consecutive OSA sample. This cross-sectional study(More)
BACKGROUND Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) causes high morbidity and mortality and is independently associated with an increased likelihood of multiple complications. The diagnosis of OSA is presently time-consuming, labor-intensive and inaccessible. AIM This study sought to develop a simple and efficient model for identifying OSA in Chinese adult(More)
BACKGROUND Bariatric surgery has been reported to be an effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). However, this evidence was not enough for different populations. Thus, we conducted a follow-up study to evaluate the effect of bariatric surgery on OSA in a Chinese population with obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). METHODS From May(More)
Lipid metabolism disorder is recognized to be associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA); however, inconsistent results have been reported. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between lipid profile and OSA with adjustments for multiple confounding factors. In total, 2983 subjects were recruited from the Shanghai Sleep Health Study(More)
BACKGROUND Dyslipidaemia is an intermediary exacerbation factor for various diseases but the impact of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) on dyslipidaemia remains unclear. METHODS A total of 3582 subjects with suspected OSA consecutively admitted to our hospital sleep centre were screened and 2983 (2422 with OSA) were included in the Shanghai Sleep Health(More)
BACKGROUND Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery is an effective therapy for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). However, little attention has been paid to the treatment goals systematically stratified by sex. The objective of this study was to assess how sex differences affect obesity indices and metabolic outcomes after RYGB surgery. METHODS A sleep(More)
OBJECTIVES Many clinical studies have indicated that obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), the most common chronic sleep disorder, may affect neurocognitive function, and that treatment for continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) has some neurocognitive protective effects against the adverse effects of OSA. However, the effects of CPAP treatment on(More)
BACKGROUND Various portable monitors for identifying obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have been investigated and reported to enable accurate recording of OSA severity. However, more information is needed from different populations. This study was conducted to evaluate the efficiency of a portable 2-channel sleep apnea device (SleepView) for screening OSA in(More)
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with dyslipidemia. However, no study has focused on dyslipidemia in women with OSA. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and risk factors for dyslipidemia in women with OSA. Between 2007 and 2013, 570 eligible female patients with suspected OSA were consecutively recruited. The analyzed data(More)
