Effect of weight loss induced by gastric bypass on proinflammatory interleukin-18, soluble tumour necrosis factor-alpha receptors, C-reactive protein and adiponectin in morbidly obese patients.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Interleukin-18 (IL-18) is a potent proinflammatory cytokine whose role in human obesity has recently been suggested. The aim of our study was to analyse in morbidly obese patients undergoing gastric bypass, the relationship of IL-18 with insulin resistance and with proinflammatory cytokines (tumour necrosis factor-alpha receptors, sTNFR), C… (More)
