Aktuel forskning

Objective: We aim to evaluate the value of the Polysomnography (PSG) and Multiple sleep latency test (MSLT) which currently is the gold standard for diagnosis of narcolepsy and other hypersomnia. Additionally, to evaluate the value of cerebrospinal fluid hypocretin-1 and ho it changes over time. Further we aim to evaluate consequences of disease for both narcolepsy type 1 and type 2 and to evaluate effect of treatment.

Method: In our register we have more than 800 patients classified into subtypes (narcolepsy type 1/2 and idiopathic hypersomnia). Further we do a case-control study of narcoleptic type 2 patients comparing them with patients with narcolepsy type 1 and idiopathic hypersomnia. The patients will be compared to all national registers as formerly described. The PhD project includes diagnostic evaluation including retest variability of the PSG, MSLT and cerebrospinal fluid hypocretin measures. The patients will be compared to controls without these disorders.
