Imbalance of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma and adiponectin predisposes Kawasaki disease patients to developing atherosclerosis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND It remains controversial whether Kawasaki disease (KD) is a risk factor for the onset of atherosclerosis. An imbalance of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) and adiponectin appears to play a role in the onset of atherosclerosis in adults, and we therefore examined PPARγ mRNA expression and adiponectin profiles in the peripheral… (More)
