BACKGROUND Obesity is one of the well-known risk factors of vascular disorders; however, the molecular mechanisms underlying the association between the two remain undetermined. Previous studies have demonstrated that the plasma levels of adiponectin, an adipose-derived hormone, are reduced in obese subjects, and that this hypoadiponectinemia is associated with ischemic heart disease. In this study, we sought to identify the primary determinants of plasma adiponectin levels in healthy… CONTINUE READING
