An individual's lipid profile is influenced by genetic variants and alcohol consumption, but the contribution of interactions between these exposures has not been studied. We therefore incorporated gene-alcohol interactions into a multi-ancestry genome-wide association study of levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglycerides. We included 45 studies in Stage 1 (genome-wide discovery) and 66 studies in Stage 2 (focused follow-up), for a total of 394,584 individuals from five ancestry groups. Read More

Many genetic loci affect circulating lipid levels, but it remains unknown whether lifestyle factors, such as physical activity, modify these genetic effects. To identify lipid loci interacting with physical activity, we performed genome-wide analyses of circulating HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglyceride levels in up to 120,979 individuals of European, African, Asian, Hispanic, and Brazilian ancestry, with follow-up of suggestive associations in an additional 131,012 individuals. We find four loci, in/near CLASP1, LHX1, SNTA1, and CNTNAP2, that are associated with circulating lipid levels through interaction with physical activity; higher levels of physical activity enhance the HDL cholesterol-increasing effects of the CLASP1, LHX1, and SNTA1 loci and attenuate the LDL cholesterol-increasing effect of the CNTNAP2 locus.

CBT for late-life insomnia and the accuracy of sleep and wake perceptions: Results from a randomized-controlled trial.

J Sleep Res 2019 Jan 4:e12809. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Subjective and objective estimates of sleep are often discordant among individuals with insomnia who typically under-report sleep time and over-report wake time at night. This study examined the impact and durability of cognitive-behavioural therapy for insomnia on improving the accuracy of sleep and wake perceptions in older adults, and tested whether changes in sleep quality were related to changes in the accuracy of sleep/wake perceptions. One-hundred and fifty-nine older veterans (97% male, mean age 72. Read More

Untangling PTSD and TBI: Challenges and Strategies in Clinical Care and Research.

Curr Neurol Neurosci Rep 2018 Nov 8;18(12):106. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

VISN 20 Northwest Network Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Center (MIRECC), VA Puget Sound Health Care System, 1660 S. Columbian Way, S116 MIRECC, Seattle, WA, 98108, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can result from similar injuries and can result in similar symptoms, such as problems with sleep, concentration, memory, and mood. Although PTSD and persistent sequelae due to a TBI (PST) have generally been viewed as pragmatically confounded but conceptually separable entities, we examine emerging evidence emphasizing the breadth of overlap in both clinical presentation and underlying pathophysiology between PST and PTSD.

Recent Findings: New evidence underscores the poor specificity of symptoms to etiology and emphasizes the potential, after both physical brain injury and traumatic stress, for changes in each of the three interacting systems that coordinate the body's response to the experience or expectation of major injury-the immune, endocrine, and neuromodulatory neurotransmitter systems.

Division of Pulmonary Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, Wayne State University, Harper University Hospital, 3 Hudson, 3990 John R, Detroit, MI 48323, USA.

Sleep disorders are common among women veterans and contribute to poor functioning and quality of life. Studies show that women veterans are particularly prone to insomnia, sleep-disordered breathing, and insufficient sleep. Standard cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) should be viewed as first-line therapy for insomnia disorder, and women veterans should be screened and treated for sleep-disordered breathing.

Sleep quality as predictor of BMI in non-depressed caregivers of people with dementia.

Eat Weight Disord 2018 Oct 10;23(5):553-560. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

Department of Psychology, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Purpose: Although most cross-sectional and longitudinal studies of children and adolescents have found a link between short duration of sleep and obesity, the literature related to adults provides a non-consensual framework. The aim of the present study was to examine the association between sleep quality and BMI in a population of caregivers looking after people suffering from dementia, with a view to identifying the moderating role of depressive symptoms in the relationship between sleep problems and BMI.

Methods: A total of 117 subjects took part in the study, filling in a Sociodemographic Questionnaire, the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, the Eating behavior Questionnaire and The Center for Epidemiologic Studies-Depression. Read More

Deterioration of executive dysfunction in elderly with REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD).

Neurobiol Aging 2018 Oct 30;70:242-246. Epub 2018 Jun 30.

Center of Neurology, Department of Neurodegeneration and Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research, University of Tuebingen, Tuebingen, Germany; German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases, University of Tuebingen, Tuebingen, Germany.

REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) represents a major and relatively specific prodromal marker for synucleinopathies such as Parkinson's disease (PD), dementia with Lewy bodies, and multisystem atrophy. Because PD patients primarily suffer from executive dysfunction, we hypothesized that individuals with RBD show an impairment in the nonamnestic executive domain rather than in amnestic domains. To address this question, we investigated a cohort of 1145 healthy elderly (183 with RBD) cross-sectionally and a subgroup of 544 of them longitudinally (144 with RBD) over 6 years. Read More

Heavy alcohol consumption is an established risk factor for hypertension; the mechanism by which alcohol consumption impact blood pressure (BP) regulation remains unknown. We hypothesized that a genome-wide association study accounting for gene-alcohol consumption interaction for BP might identify additional BP loci and contribute to the understanding of alcohol-related BP regulation. We conducted a large two-stage investigation incorporating joint testing of main genetic effects and single nucleotide variant (SNV)-alcohol consumption interactions. Read More

Evidence for altered brain reactivity to norepinephrine in Veterans with a history of traumatic stress.

Neurobiol Stress 2018 Feb 15;8:103-111. Epub 2018 Mar 15.

VISN 20 Northwest Network Mental Illness Research, Education, and Clinical Center (MIRECC), VA Puget Sound Health Care System, 1660 S. Columbian Way, S116 MIRECC, Seattle, WA 98108, USA.

Background: Increases in the quantity or impact of noradrenergic signaling have been implicated in the pathophysiology of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This increased signaling may result from increased norepinephrine (NE) release, from altered brain responses to NE, or from a combination of both factors. Here, we tested the hypothesis that Veterans reporting a history of trauma exposure would show an increased association between brain NE and mental health symptoms commonly observed after trauma, as compared to Veterans who did not report a history of trauma exposure, consistent with the possibility of increased brain reactivity to NE after traumatic stress.

Daytime bright light exposure, metabolism, and individual differences in wake and sleep energy expenditure during circadian entrainment and misalignment.

Neurobiol Sleep Circadian Rhythms 2018 Jan 29;4:49-56. Epub 2017 Dec 29.

Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism, and Diabetes, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, USA.

Daytime light exposure has been reported to impact or have no influence on energy metabolism in humans. Further, whether inter-individual differences in wake, sleep, 24 h energy expenditure, and RQ during circadian entrainment and circadian misalignment are stable across repeated 24 h assessments is largely unknown. We present data from two studies: Study 1 of 15 participants (7 females) exposed to three light exposure conditions: continuous typical room ~100 lx warm white light, continuous ~750 lx warm white light, and alternating hourly ~750 lx warm white and blue-enriched white light on three separate days in a randomized order; and Study 2 of 14 participants (8 females) during circadian misalignment induced by a simulated night shift protocol.

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, United States.

The most frequent injury sustained by US service members deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan is mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI), or concussion, by far most often caused by blast waves from improvised explosive devices or other explosive ordnance. TBI from all causes gives rise to chronic neuroendocrine disorders with an estimated prevalence of 25-50%. The current study expands upon our earlier finding that chronic pituitary gland dysfunction occurs with a similarly high frequency after blast-related concussions. Read More

Severity of OSAS, CPAP and cardiovascular events: A follow-up study.

Eur J Clin Invest 2018 May 3;48(5):e12908. Epub 2018 Mar 3.

Department of Internal Medicine and Medical Specialties, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Background: Previous studies suggested obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) as a major risk factor for incident cardiovascular events. However, the relationship between OSAS severity, the use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment and the development of cardiovascular disease is still matter of debate.

Study Objectives: The aim was to test the association between OSAS and cardiovascular events in patients with concomitant cardio-metabolic diseases and the potential impact of CPAP therapy on cardiovascular outcomes. Read More
