BACKGROUND To reveal the exact link between adipose tissue, inflammation, and cardiovascular disease (CVD), we studied the association of C-reactive protein (CRP) with insulin resistance and adipocytokines in Asian Indian subjects. METHODS Forty-one controls, 40 obese, and 53 type 2 diabetes (T2DM) patients (total 134) were recruited. Enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) technique was used to determine serum CRP and adipocytokine concentrations. Serum insulin was measured by radioimmune assay… CONTINUE READING
