RATIONALE Adipose tissue produces adiponectin, an anti-inflammatory protein. Adiponectin deficiency in mice is associated with abnormal post-natal alveolar development. OBJECTIVE We hypothesized that lower serum adiponectin concentrations are associated with lower lung function in humans, independent of obesity. We explored mediation of this association by insulin resistance and systemic inflammation. METHODS AND MEASUREMENTS Spirometry testing was conducted at years 10 and 20 follow-up… CONTINUE READING
