Adiponectin--its potential to predict and prevent coronary artery disease.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recent evidence suggests that epicardial adipose tissue may contribute locally to the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD). We investigated how local and systemic adiponectin, an adipokine with anti-inflammatory and insulin sensitizing properties, is related to the presence of CAD and cardiovascular risk factors. METHODS Serum and… (More)
