Lipid peroxides, superoxide dismutase and circulatingIL-8 and GCP-2 in patients with severe obstructive sleep apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality and many other physiological and immunological disorders. An increase in hypoxia due to OSA may cause generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS are toxic to biomembranes and may lead to peroxidation of lipids...

Lipid peroxides in stable asthmatics on inhaled steroids and long acting b2 agonists

The effect of inhaled steroids on oxidative stress in asthmatics is unclear. The levels of lipid peroxides in the serum of asthmatic patients, whose symptoms were controlled with inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting beta(2)-agonists, were measured in this study...

Periodic leg movements in narcolepsy patients: Impact on sleep architecture

We assessed the effect of periodic leg movements (PLMs) on sleep architecture in narcolepsy patients by comparing sleep patterns in narcoleptics of comparable age with and without PLMs...

Submaximal exercise in patients with obstructive sleep apnea

Several studies have used the cardiopulmonary exercise test to assess patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). However, no report has investigated the use of the 6-min walk test (6MWT) in this group of patients...

Sleep Medicine Service in Saudi Arabia: A Quantitative Assessment

Clinical characteristics and HLA typing of a family with Kleine-Levin syndrome.

Kleine-Levin syndrome (KLS) is a rare disorder of unknown etiology. To date, only four familial cases have been described. The possible presence of genetic and autoimmune processes has been postulated recently. Our objective was to report for the first time a multiplex KLS Saudi family with 6 out of 12 family members affected...
