    Claire E H M Donjacour
    Department of Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology, Leiden University Medical Centre, The Netherlands
    J Sleep Res 20:522-5. 2011
    ..An effect of birth month on the occurrence of narcolepsy with cataplexy was not found in a study of 307 cases after adjusting for changing birth patterns in the general population...
  2. doi request reprint Altered circadian rhythm of melatonin concentrations in hypocretin-deficient men
    Claire E H M Donjacour
    Department of Neurology, Leiden University Medical Centre, Leiden, The Netherlands
    Chronobiol Int 29:356-62. 2012
    ..SXB did not affect melatonin secretion. These findings suggest that hypocretin deficiency might disturb both the circadian control of melatonin release and its temporal association with sleep...
  3. doi request reprint Sodium oxybate increases prolactin secretion in narcolepsy patients and healthy controls
    Claire E H M Donjacour
    Department of Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology, Leiden University Medical Centre, Postal Zone J3 R 151, PO Box 9600, 2300 RC Leiden, The Netherlands
    Eur J Endocrinol 164:363-70. 2011
    ..This study was performed to compare prolactin (PRL) secretion in patients and matched controls and establish the effect of SXB administration on PRL and sleep in both the groups...
  4. doi request reprint Effect of sodium oxybate on growth hormone secretion in narcolepsy patients and healthy controls
    Claire E H M Donjacour
    Department of Neurology, Leiden University Medical Centre, Leiden, The Netherlands
    Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab 300:E1069-75. 2011
    ..These data suggest that SXB may alter somatotropic tone in addition to its consolidating effect on nighttime sleep in narcolepsy. This could explain the suggested nonsleep effects of SXB, including body weight reduction...
  5. pmc Plasma total ghrelin and leptin levels in human narcolepsy and matched healthy controls: basal concentrations and response to sodium oxybate
    Claire E H M Donjacour
    Department of Neurology, Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands
    J Clin Sleep Med 9:797-803. 2013
    ..Ghrelin and leptin interact with hypocretin neurons to influence energy homeostasis. Here, we evaluated whether human hypocretin deficiency, or the narcolepsy therapeutic agent sodium oxybate, alter the levels of these hormones...
  6. pmc Glucose and fat metabolism in narcolepsy and the effect of sodium oxybate: a hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp study
    Claire E H M Donjacour
    Department of Neurology Leiden University Medical Centre, Leiden, The Netherlands
    Sleep 37:795-801. 2014
    ..Therefore, we performed a detailed analysis of systemic energy homeostasis in narcolepsy patients, and additionally, investigated whether it was affected by three months of sodium oxybate (SXB) treatment...
