Tumor Cell Malignant Properties Are Enhanced by Circulating Exosomes in Sleep Apnea.

BACKGROUND OSA is associated with increased cancer incidence and mortality. Exosomes are vesicles secreted by most cells. They are released into the bloodstream and play a role in tumor progression and metastasis. We evaluated whether the chronic intermittent hypoxia (IH) that characterizes OSA leads to release of tumor-promoting exosomes in the circulation… (More)
