      Barbé Illa, Ferran; Sánchez de la Torre, Alicia; Abad, Jorge; Durán-Cantolla, Joaquín; Mediano, Olga; Amilibia, Jose; Masdeu, María José; Florés, Marina; Barceló Bennasar, Antònia; Peña, Mónica de la; Aldomá, Albina; Worner, Fernando; Valls Marsal, Joan; Castellà, Gerard; Sánchez de la Torre, Manuel (European Respiratory Society, 2015)
      The goal of this study was to evaluate the influence of obstructive sleep apnoea on the severity and short-term prognosis of patients admitted for acute coronary syndrome. Obstructive sleep apnoea was defined as an ...
    • Effect of Patient Sex on the Severity of Coronary Artery Disease in Patients with Newly Diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Admitted by an Acute Coronary Syndrome 

      Sánchez de la Torre, Alicia; Abad, Jorge; Durán-Cantolla, Joaquín; Mediano, Olga; Cabriada, Valentín; Masdeu, María José; Terán, Joaquin; Masa, Juan Fernando; Peña, Mónica de la; Aldomá, Albina; Worner, Fernando; Valls Marsal, Joan; Barbé Illa, Ferran; Sánchez de la Torre, Manuel (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Background: The cardiovascular consequences of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) differ by sex. We hypothesized that sex influences the severity of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in patients with OSA. OSA was defined as an ...
    • Effects of Ethnicity on the Prevalence of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome: A Pooled Analysis of the ISAACC Trial and Sleep and Stent Study. 

      Koo, Chieh-Yang; Sánchez de la Torre, Alicia; Loo, Germaine; Sánchez de la Torre, Manuel; Zhang, Junjie; Durán-Cantolla, Joaquín; Li, Ruogu; Mayós Pérez, Mercè; Sethi, Rithi; Abad, Jorge; Drager, Luciano; Coloma, Ramón; Hein, Thet; Ho, Hee-Hwa; Jim, Man-Hong; Ong, Thun-How; Tai, Bee-Choo; Aldomá, Albina; Lee, Chi-Hang; Barbé Illa, Ferran (Elsevier; Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons (ANZSCTS); Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSANZ), 2017)
      Objective: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is an increasing yet under-recognized risk factor for acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We sought to determine the effects of ethnicity on the prevalence of OSA in patients presenting ...
    • Impact of obstructive sleep apnea on the levels of placental growth factor (PlGF) and their value for predicting short-term adverse outcomes in patients with acute coronary syndrome 

      Barceló Bennasar, Antònia; Bauçà, Josep Miquel; Yañez, Aina; Fueyo, Laura; Gomez, Cristina; Peña, Mónica de la; Pierola, Javier; Rodriguez, Alberto; Sánchez de la Torre, Manuel; Abad, Jorge; Mediano, Olga; Amilibia, Jose; Masdeu, María José; Terán, Joaquin; Montserrat i Capdevila, Josep; Mayós Pérez, Mercè; Sánchez de la Torre, Alicia; Barbé Illa, Ferran (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Background Placental growth factor (PlGF) induces angiogenesis and promotes tissue repair, and plasma PlGF levels change markedly during acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Currently, the impact of obstructive sleep apnea ...
    • Intermittent Hypoxia Is Associated With High Hypoxia Inducible Factor-1α but Not High Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Cell Expression in Tumors of Cutaneous Melanoma Patients 

      Almendros, Isaac; Martínez-García, Miguel Angel; Campos-Rodríguez, Francisco; Riveiro-Falkenbach, Erica; Rodríguez-Peralto, José L.; Nagore, Eduardo; Martorell-Calatayud, Antonio; Hernández Blasco, Luis; Bañuls Roca, Jose; Chiner, Eusebi; Sánchez de la Torre, Alicia; Abad, Jorge; Montserrat, Josep Maria; Pérez-Gil, Amalia; Cabriada, Valentín; Cano-Pumarega, Irene; Corral-Peñafiel, Jaime; Diaz-Cambriles, Trinidad; Mediano, Olga; Dalmau-Arias, Joan; Farré, Ramon; Gozal, David; Spanish Sleep Network (Frontiers Media, 2018)
      Epidemiological associations linking between obstructive sleep apnea and poorer solid malignant tumor outcomes have recently emerged. Putative pathways proposed to explain that these associations have included enhanced ...
    • Obesity attenuates the effect of sleep apnea on active TGF-ß1 levels and tumor aggressiveness in patients with melanoma 

      Cubillos‑Zapata, Carolina; Martínez‑García, Miguel Ángel; Díaz‑García, Elena; Jaureguizar, Ana; Campos‑Rodríguez, Francisco; Sánchez de la Torre, Manuel; Nagore, Eduardo; Martorell‑Calatayud, Antonio; Hernández Blasco, Luis; Pastor, Esther; Abad, Jorge; Montserrat, Josep Maria; Cabriada‑Nuño, Valentín; Cano‑Pumarega, Irene; Corral-Peñafiel, Jaime; Arias, Eva; Mediano, Olga; Somoza, María; Dalmau-Arias, Joan; Almendros, Isaac; Farré, Ramon; López‑Collazo, Eduardo; Gozal, David; García Río, Francisco (Nature Research, 2020)
      Active transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1), a cytokine partially regulated by hypoxia and obesity, has been related with poor prognosis in several tumors. We determine whether obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) increases ...
    • Respiratory Polygraphy Patterns and Risk of Recurrent Cardiovascular Events in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome 

      Zapater, Andrea; Solelhac, Geoffroy; Sánchez de la Torre, Alicia; Gracia-Lavedan, Esther; Benítez, Iván; Torres, Gerard; Batlle Garcia, Jordi de; Haba Rubio, José; Berger, Mathieu; Abad, Jorge; Durán-Cantolla, Joaquín; Urrutia, Amaia; Mediano, Olga; Masdeu, María José; Ordax-Carbajo, Estrella; Masa, Juan Fernando; Peña, Mónica de la; Mayós Pérez, Mercè; Coloma, Ramón; Montserrat, Josep Maria; Chiner, Eusebi; Minguez Roure, Olga; Pascual, Lydia; Cortijo, Anunciación; Martínez, Dolores; Dalmases, Mireia; Lee, Chi-Hang; McEvoy, R. Doug; Barbé Illa, Ferran; Heinzer, Raphael; Sánchez de la Torre, Manuel (Frontiers Media, 2022)
      Introduction: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) severity is based on the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI). The AHI is a simplistic measure that is inadequate for capturing disease severity and its consequences in cardiovascular ...
