Increased plasma fibronectin concentrations in obesity: normalization during weight loss.


In 23 morbidly obese patients we investigated the influence of a large weight loss (30.6 kg, range 17.5-90.8) on the plasma fibronectin concentrations. Further, changes in plasma fibronectin were related to serum insulin levels and to liver biochemistry. Between the measurements patients had been treated with an intermittent very-low-calorie formula diet… (More)
