Big data ESADA meeting in Palermo

on the June 19, 2018

A two days meeting has been organized in Palermo by the European Sleep apnea database (ESADA) consortium addressing the topic of "big data in Obstructive sleep apnea".
We agreed on policies and common scientific projects for merging sleep apnea cohorts and databases from FRANCE, ITALY, GERMANY, SWEDEN, GREECE, CRETE, BELGIUM and ROMANIA. HP2 (Sebastien Bailly, Jean Louis Pépin) and CDP LIFE will be in charge of coordinating and conducting innovative analyses on these observational data. We expect from this European dataset of more than 150,000 OSA patients a gain in knowledge regarding clusters of phenotypes, regional and gender variations and impact of environmental factors. Artificial intelligence will be used for developing predictive algorithms of treatment responses and in particular CPAP adherence. These original results and building such a network will provide a strong rationale for future application to European projects (H2020), industrial collaborations, design of large scale randomized controlled trials and improvements in personalized OSA care.
