Interaction between Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Shortened Telomere Length on Brain White Matter Abnormality

Peer-Reviewed Scientific Journal:
Sleep

Size of study:
420 adults, 61.3 median years of age

Summary
This paper found an interaction between short telomere length and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) on brain white matter changes. These findings suggest a possible mechanism for the negative brain health effects of obstructive sleep apnea.
