BACKGROUND Experimental studies have shown that tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) downregulate visfatin gene expression in adipocytes. On the other hand, the induction of cytokine production by visfatin in leucocytes and monocytes has also been described. AIM To assess the possible interrelation between plasma concentrations of visfatin and TNF-α and TNF soluble receptor in obese women fulfilling, or not, the criteria of metabolic syndrome (MS). METHODS Ninety two… CONTINUE READING
