BACKGROUND AND AIMS Omentin, an adipocytokine secreted by visceral adipose tissue, protects against obesity-linked cardiovascular complications. However, little is known about its role in epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) and coronary artery disease (CAD). We investigated the expression of omentin in EAT from CAD subjects. METHODS EAT, subcutaneous adipose tissue (SCAT), and plasma samples were collected from CAD (n = 15; 23.3 ± 3.1 kg/m(2)) and non-CAD patients (n = 10; 20.8 ± 3.9 kg/m(2… CONTINUE READING
