Sleep apnoea 'raises the risk of CANCER in women'

Greek scientists analysed data from 19,000 people to examine if there was a link between OSA and cancer. They found cancer was more prevalent in women with sleep apnoea than those without.

This study sought to investigate what could be learned from how these men have fared. The men were born in 1925-1928 and similar health-related data from questionnaires, physical examination, and blood samples are available for all surveys. Survival curves over various variable strata were applied to evaluate the impact of individual risk factors and combinations of risk factors on all-cause deaths. At the end of 2018, 118 (16.0%) of the men had reached 90 years of age. Smoking in 1974 was the strongest single risk factor associated with survival, with observed percentages of men reaching 90 years being 26.3, 25.7, ...

Abstract OBJECTIVES: To examine the impact of diabetes on the symptoms of women with breast cancer. SAMPLE & SETTING: 121 women with breast cancer who self-identified as having a diabetes diagnosis and 1,006 women with breast cancer without diabetes from 97 sites across the United States. METHODS & VARIABLES: Symptom scores for depression, anxiety, sexual function, peripheral neuropathy, physical function, attention function, sleep disturbance, and fatigue were compared between women with breast cancer and diabetes and women with breast cancer without diabetes, controlling for age, education, inc...

Authors: Margaritopoulos GA, Kokosi MA, Wells AU Abstract Introduction: Interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) represent a heterogeneous group of rare disorders that include more than 200 entities, mostly associated with high mortality. In recent years, the progress regarding the understanding of the pathogenesis of these diseases, led to the approval of specific treatments. In ILDs, the presence of comorbidities has a significant impact on the quality of life and the survival of patients and, therefore, their diagnosis and treatment has a pivotal role in management and could improve overall outcome. Areas covered: We d...

Publication date: Available online 18 June 2019Source: Personalized Medicine UniverseAuthor(s): Minako Abe, Hiroyuki AbeAbstractLifestyle-related chronic illnesses, such as metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and dementia are rising at an alarming, epidemic rate. In this modern world of increasing lifespan, we are actually decreasing our health span, placing an undue burden on healthcare costs to society. Modern medicine has largely gotten away from addressing key issues to prevent or even reverse some of these chronic conditions. Yet the evidence for successful interventions in four key areas – nutrition, s...

There is growing, but debatable evidence for the potential association between obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and cancer [1–10]. Available studies have reached contradictory conclusions due to limited sample sizes, and poor characterisation of OSA phenotypes or type of malignancies (all types [1–4] or site specific [6–8]). Several hypotheses have been formulated proposing why carcinogenesis can occur in the context of OSA, including older age, sleep deprivation [11, 12] and concomitant obesity [13]. Intermittent hypoxia and sleep fragmentation may play a significant role via alterations in angiogenesis, s...

Authors: Kroker L, Dubois C, Münstedt K, Büntzel J, Keinki C, Hübner J Abstract This survey aimed at getting a first insight into diverse side effects and their association with satisfaction with life as well as the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in cancer patients. A total of 100 patients in a German University Hospital were included. General side effects like fatigue, fever, headache, limb pain and sleep disorders had a significant influence on the patients' satisfaction with life (p = .034 and p = .032, respectively). Concerning CAM, we could not detect any association between...

Publication date: Available online 5 June 2019Source: Pharmacology &TherapeuticsAuthor(s): Shigehiro Ohdo, Satoru Koyanagi, Naoya MatsunagaAbstractIn mammals, the circadian pacemaker resides in the paired suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) and influences a multitude of biological processes, including the sleep–wake rhythm. Circadian rhythms regulate diverse physiologic processes, including homeostatic functions of steroid hormones and their receptors. Perturbation of these rhythms is associated with pathogenic conditions such as cancer, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, sleep disorder and depression. Clock ge...
