Serum resistin (FIZZ3) protein is increased in obese humans.


The role of resistin in obesity and insulin resistance in humans is controversial. Therefore, resistin protein was quantitated by ELISA in serum of 27 lean [13 women/14 men, body mass index (BMI) 21.7 +/- 0.4 kg/m(2), age 33 +/- 2 yr] and 50 obese (37 women/13 men, BMI 49.8 +/- 1.5 kg/m(2), age 47 +/- 1 yr) subjects. There was more serum resistin protein in… (More)
