  1. Hs-CRP = high-sensitivity C-reactive protein; PON-1 sal = PON-1 paraoxonase activity; PON-1 are = PON-1 arylesterase activity; Hcy = Homocysteine; Cys = Cysteine. Data are presented as the mean ± SD or SE. Analysis of covariance adjusted for waist circumference, HOMA-IR and triglycerides. *Different from control (p < 0.05). #Different from non-EDS OSA group (p < 0.05).
