BACKGROUND Although peripheral blood adipokines and insulin levels have been considered to be biomarkers of Alzheimer's disease (AD), previous researches about levels of adipokines and insulin in blood are no conclusive. We designed this meta-analysis to validate whether peripheral adipokines and insulin can be used as a candidate biomarker in AD diagnosis. METHODS We carried out a replication study in serum by ourselves and further conducted a meta-analysis to estimate the different levels… CONTINUE READING
