The Circulating Levels of Complement-C1q/TNF-Related Protein 13 (CTRP13) in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes and its Association with Insulin Resistance.


BACKGROUND Complement-C1q/TNF-related protein 13 (CTRP13) is a novel adipokine involved in the regulation of energy metabolism. Here, we sought to evaluate serum levels of CTRP13 and adiponectin in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) (n = 40) and healthy subjects (n = 40) and also to study the association of CTRP13 levels with diabetes-related indices… (More)
