CONTEXT Lactoferrin is an innate immune system protein with multiple beneficial health activities. OBJECTIVE To gain insight in the interaction between innate immune system and metabolic disturbances (obesity and insulin resistance), we investigated the relationship between circulating lactoferrin and chronic inflammation-associated insulin resistance according glucose tolerance status in Caucasian population. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, AND MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Circulating nonstressed… CONTINUE READING
