Resumo

Background: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of polymorphism on sleep parameters of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) patients. Methods: Patients were genotyped after a full-night polysomnography using the large Epidemiologic Sleep Study of Sao Paulo population-based sample. Results: Individuals who carry the APOE epsilon 2 allele showed longer sleep latency, lower sleep efficiency and higher numbers of arousals/hour, when compared to epsilon 3 allele homozygous and carriers of epsilon 4 allele (p<0.05). These findings remained significant even after correction for potential confounders, such as sex, age and African genetic ancestry. Conclusion: The APOE polymorphisms may modulate the effects of intermittent hypoxia and sleep fragmentation in the sleep architecture of OSAS patients, and that the presence of the epsilon 2 allele may serve as a biological marker for the identification of a subgroup of patients who are more likely to suffer with OSAS detrimental effects on sleep, impacting not only the daily functioning, but also their quality of life.
