X. Chen, Li, J. R., Chen, X., Li, J. R., Chen, X., and Li, J. R., Glucocorticoid receptor expression in the tonsils of children with obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

The expression of glucocorticoid receptor-α and -β (GR-α and GR-β) in the tonsil tissues of children with and without obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) was evaluated. A total of 30 children with OSAHS who underwent tonsillectomy in the Navy General Hospital from June 2012 to June 2014 were enrolled as the experimental group, and 30 non-OSAHS children were enrolled as the control group. The diagnosis of OSAHS was confirmed by preoperative sleep monitoring.
