Sleep stages in different enterotypes of patients with obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome

Takeaway

  • Obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) patients with Prevotella enterotypes were found to have significantly disrupted sleep stages compared to other enterotypes which may result from cross talk in the microbiota-gut-brain axis.

Why this matters

  • Understanding the association of gut microbiota differences with OSAHS and how this impacts pathogenesis may clarify potential treatment options.
