OBJECTIVE The race-specific association of inflammation with adiposity and muscle mass in subjects with chronic kidney disease (CKD) was examined. METHODS Plasma concentration of interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RA), IL-6, IL-10, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, TGF-β, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), fibrinogen, and serum(More)
Objective—To examine the race-specific association of inflammation with adiposity and muscle mass in subjects with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Renal Insufficiency Cohort study participants. Bioelectric impedance analysis was used to determine body fat mass (BFM) and fat free mass (FFM). Results—Plasma levels of hs-CRP, fibrinogen, IL-1RA, IL-6, and TNF-α(More)
