Serum adiponectin and markers of endothelial injury in hemodialysis patients with arteriosclerosis obliterans

Abstract

Arteriosclerosis obliterans (ASO) in hemodialysis patients is the dominant cause of morbidity evolving from arteriosclerosis. Adiponectin is an adipose-derived cytokine which, because of its modulation of endothelial adhesion molecules, has potential anti-inflammatory and anti-atherogenic properties. However, the implications of adiponectin and endothelial… (More)
