OBJECTIVE Adiponectin (AdipoQ) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of diabetes mellitus and is considered as an important candidate gene for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). So far, there have been many studies to investigate the association between the adiponectin polymorphisms and T2DM risk. However, the results are conflicting. To derive a more precise estimation, we performed a meta-analysis to assess the association between five AdipoQ polymorphisms [-11426A > G (rs16861194… CONTINUE READING
