PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has recently been associated with cardiovascular/ cerebrovascular disease, metabolic disorders, cognitive dysfunction, as well as cancer. However, the association between OSA and pulmonary fibrosis has not been reported. The aim of this work was to study the association between intermittent hypoxia (IH) and pulmonary fibrosis, the effects of IH on pulmonary fibrosis and the interventional role of tempol in mice and cell cultures.
