One year vitamin D and parathyroid hormone influence in patients with OSAS and CPAP treatment

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by intermittent hypoxemia and disturbance of circadian rhythms. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment affects hormone and bone metabolism.Aim: Monitoring of the levels of 25 (OH) vitamin D (Vit.D) and parathyroid hormone (PTH) in patients with newly diagnosed OSAS after initiating CPAP treatment for 12 months period.Material and methods: 30 patients with newly diagnosed OSAS and 20 healthy controls without Vit.D substitution were studied. The patients were followed up on the 6th and 12th months after initiation of CPAP treatment.Results: The patients with newly diagnosed OSAS were with statistically higher PTH value (5.93 ±1.82 pmol/l, p

Dr. Matija Snuderl, neuropathologist and molecular pathologist at  New York University Langone Health, was featured ina recent article appearing inNature (March 26, 2020, Vol 579, p S14-S16). The article, which addresses the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in cancer diagnostics, opens with Dr. Snuderl experiencing a moment that many of us neuropathologists have had wherein we hesitate before signing out a case because of a feeling that something might be just a bit different about a particular specimen. That feeling prompts us to do something else (run more ancillary testing, get a consult, sleep on it and ta...

This study delves into the mechanisms by which a short period of fasting can accelerate wound healing. Fasting triggers many of the same cellular stress responses, such as upregulated autophagy, as occur during the practice of calorie restriction. It isn't exactly the same, however, so it is always worth asking whether any specific biochemistry observed in either case does in fact occur in both situations. In particular, the period of refeeding following fasting appears to have beneficial effects that are distinct from those that occur while food is restricted. Multiple forms of therapeutic fasting have been repor...

Authors: Ford K, Kelly PT, Williamson R, Hlavac M Abstract AIM: Obtain an overview of the current sleep habits and sleep hygiene practices in a group of intermediate-aged students, and establish whether these students achieve adequate sleep according to the New Zealand education and health guidelines. METHODS: A standardised sleep health questionnaire and seven-day sleep diary were completed by 163 participants (aged 11-13; 62% female) from a cross-section of five Christchurch schools. RESULTS: In this group, 71% of students reported 9-11 hours of sleep per night (averaged over seven days). Total sleep time...

The pathogenesis of obstructive sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome (OSAHS) is uncertain and likely to be a multifactorial process. The molecular mechanisms of the relationship between vitamin D status and inflammatory biomarkers are still not well understood.We aimed to investigate the relationship between Interleukin 17 (IL-17) and vitamin D among severe OSAHS patients.It was a coss-sectional survey carried between September 2014 and September 2015 in RABTA Pulmonary Department, Tunis. Patients with a severe OSAHS were randomly enrolled. Included patients had to show none of the following criteria: clinical signs of heart fa...
