CONTEXT Adiponectin (APN) concentration in umbilical cord serum is higher than that in adult serum. Except for the positive association between birth weight and cord APN concentration, little is known about the pathophysiological function of APN in fetal development. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate the relationship of cord serum APN and IGF-I concentrations with the development of the fetoplacental unit. DESIGN AND METHODS Umbilical cord serum APN and IGF-I… CONTINUE READING
