OBJECTIVE Adiponectin, an adipocyte-derived protein, has potential antiatherogenic properties. Low levels of serum total-adiponectin (Total-APN) correlate with diabetes and coronary artery disease (CAD). Adiponectin and C1q form a protein complex in blood, and serum C1q-binding adiponectin (C1q-APN) can be measured. We investigated the correlation between C1q-APN and CAD in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). METHODS The study subjects were 107 outpatients with T2DM who underwent… CONTINUE READING
