Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is common in children and leads to multiple end-organ morbidities. Myeloid-related protein (MRP) 8/14 plays an important pathophysiological role in atherosclerosis, and plasma levels correlate with endothelial cell dysfunction. We hypothesised that MRP8/14 levels would be altered in children with OSA. 255 children (aged(More)
Intranasal corticosteroids (CS) are potentially useful interventions for children with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), and may reduce lymphadenoid tissue size in the upper airway. The present authors hypothesised that CS would reduce cellular proliferation and the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines in a tonsil/adenoid mixed-cell culture system.(More)
