This may have been due to differences in ages of the subjects in the different studies. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the association of RBP4 and(More)
The present study was designed to investigate the relationship of isoforms of adiponectin to insulin sensitivity in subjects with HIV-associated insulin resistance in response to treatment with the thiazolidinedione, rosiglitazone. The two isoforms of adiponectin, HMW (high-molecular-mass) and LMW (low-molecular-mass), were separated by(More)

Lead concentrations in blood and scalp hair of 200 school boys, aged 6-8 years, were measured by electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry. The mean blood-Pb concentration was 6.8 microg dl(-1) and the mean hair-Pb concentration was 9.7 microg g(-1) (dry weight). These values are well within the normal range for the respective tissues, indicating that(More)
