Niacin Administration Significantly Reduces Oxidative Stress in Patients With Hypercholesterolemia and Low Levels of High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol
TLDR
Niacin treatment in hypercholesterolemic patients with low HDL levels caused a significant decrease in their oxidative stress status, indicating an additional beneficial effect of niacin beyond its ability to affect the lipid profile. Expand
Abnormal lipid peroxidation in patients with sleep apnoea.
TLDR
The results indicate that obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome is associated with abnormal lipid peroxidation and that this is improved by chronic use of Continuous positive airway pressure, which can contribute towards explaining the high prevalence of cardiovascular diseases seen in Obstructive sleep ApnoeA syndrome. Expand
PLASMA-HIGH-DENSITY-LIPOPROTEIN CONCENTRATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF ISCHÆMIC HEART-DISEASE
TLDR
The body cholesterol pool increases with decreasing plasma-high-density-lipoprotein (H.D.L.) but is unrelated to the plasma concentrations of total cholesterol and other lipoproteins, and it is proposed that a reduction of plasma-H.H.L.D., is reduced in several conditions associated with an increased risk of future ischaemic heart-disease, by impairing the clearance of cholesterol from the arterial wall. Expand
Relation of sleep-disordered breathing to cardiovascular disease risk factors: the Sleep Heart Health Study.
TLDR
Although the pattern of associations was consistent with greater obesity in those with higher RDI, higher body mass index did not explain all of these associations. Expand
The influence of obesity and obstructive sleep apnea on metabolic hormones
TLDR
It is found that sleep apnea was not a determinant factor in leptin, adiponectin, and ghrelin hormonal levels, and nCPAP treatment diminishes leptin in obese OSA patients and adip onectin levels in obese and non-obese patients with OSAS. Expand
Sleep-disordered breathing and insulin resistance in middle-aged and overweight men.
TLDR
Increasing AHI was associated with worsening insulin resistance independent of obesity and Multivariable linear regression analyses revealed that sleep-disordered breathing is a prevalent condition in mildly obese men and is independently associated with glucose intolerance and insulin resistance. Expand
Association of atrial fibrillation and obstructive sleep apnea
TLDR
It is found that a strong association exists between OSA HS and AF, such that AF is strikingly more prevalent in patients with OSAHS than in control group. Expand
Pathogenic role of angiotensin II and oxidised LDL in obstructive sleep apnoea
TLDR
Observations suggest an important role of Ang II and oxLDL-mediated LOX-1 upregulation in endothelial cell injury in patients with OSAS. Expand
Obstructive sleep apnoea is independently associated with an increased prevalence of metabolic syndrome.
TLDR
OSA is independently associated with an increase in the cardiovascular risk factors that comprise the metabolic syndrome and its overall prevalence, which may help explain the increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality associated with this condition. Expand
The epidemiology of sleep apnoea.
TLDR
A study of the prevalence of sleep-disordered breathing in subjects derived from a random sample of the population, and the independent predictors of SDB among snorers were age, body mass index, and neck circumference. Expand
