Insomnia may affect vascular factors and promote arteriosclerosis. Microparticles (MPs) are a heterogeneous group of bioactive small vesicles that can be found in blood and body fluids following activation, necrosis or apoptosis of virtually any eukaryotic cells. MPs are believed to participate in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Few studies have been concerned with the microparticle level in patients with sleep disorder. The purpose of the present study is to measure the levels of endothelial microparticles (EMPs), platelet microparticles (PMPs) and leukocyte-derived microparticles (LMPs) in middle-aged and elderly patients with or without insomnia.

A slowly growing malignant neoplasm derived from cartilage cells, occurring most frequently in pelvic bones or near the ends of long bones, in middle-aged and old people. Most chondrosarcomas arise de novo, but some may develop in a preexisting benign cartilaginous lesion or in patients with ENCHONDROMATOSIS. (Stedman, 25th ed)
A syndrome characterized by a transient loss of the ability to form new memories. It primarily occurs in middle aged or elderly individuals, and episodes may last from minutes to hours. During the period of amnesia, immediate and recent memory abilities are impaired, but the level of consciousness and ability to perform other intellectual tasks are preserved. The condition is related to bilateral dysfunction of the medial portions of each TEMPORAL LOBE. Complete recovery normally occurs, and recurrences are unusual. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp429-30)
