... prospectively studied. Plasma levels of homocysteine, cholesterols, triglycerides, vitamin B 12 and high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP), as well as echocardiographic and lung function parameters were assessed. Results: Homocysteine levels were elevated in all OSAS groups and were statistically...
