OBJECTIVE The present study was undertaken to measure serum levels of adiponectin and CD146, an endothelial cell injury marker, and to clarify the property of adiponectin and CD146 in patients with diabetic nephropathy. DESIGN A total of 280 diabetic patients, and 49 control subjects were enrolled. Serum levels of adiponectin and CD146 were measured by ELISA. RESULTS Serum adiponectin levels were relatively low in the diabetic patients as compared to the control subjects. Inversely, serum… CONTINUE READING
