Association of serum adipocytokines with insulin resistance and liver injury in patients with chronic hepatitis C genotype 4.


BACKGROUND Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, especially genotypes 1 and 4, is associated with metabolic dysfunction. We investigated the potential role of adipocytokines in HCV-induced insulin resistance (IR) and modulating the progression of liver disease in patients with HCV-4. METHODS Serum adiponectin, high molecular weight adiponectin, leptin, tumor… (More)
