ERS Research Seminar: Intermittent hypoxia and adipose tissue - Insight into the pathophysiology of the Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome (OSAS) and treatment options, Palermo 2009

About
Research Seminars gather a small number (20 to 100) of well-established and preferably young investigators to address scientific topics in depth and help break new ground. Research Seminars take place over two days in easy-to-reach European cities. They are scientific Seminars involving recently published work and research in progress. Participation is fully supported by the budget granted by the ERS.

Background
The purpose of the Seminar was to discuss in a highly multidisciplinary environment the relative role of obesity, OSAS or both in the pathogenesis of dyslipidemia, a well-known risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The topic is currently debated in the literature and has important therapeutic implications, given the controversial results of OSAS treatment on metabolic variables and the recent progress in the therapeutic approach to the obese patient. The Seminar could help increase the cooperation in research between the fields of obesity and OSAS in Europe.
