New Sleep Apnea Treatment Is Based On Drugs
It Is Oriented To Certain Inflammation Present On Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Most sleep apnea treatment consists of mechanical or electrical devices that prevent the blockage of the upper airway, avoiding the interruption, but they are very uncomfortable for some people. However, researchers are working on a new treatment based on drugs. A drug used for treating multiple sclerosis has proven effective in treating obstructive sleep apnea, compared to a placebo. This drug has anti-inflammatory effects. Studies have found that certain inflammatory molecules have been shown to be related to obstructive sleep apnea. Also, sleep apnea frequency or severity has been reduced with immunosuppressive agents. This new treatment would avoid the requirement to interact with CPAP machines or oral devices.
