The metabolic syndrome, which clusters insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, and hypertension in each individual is a common basis of type 2 diabetes and atherosclerotic vascular diseases. Accumulation of intra-abdominal visceral adipose tissue triggers the metabolic syndrome. Recent researches have explored adipose tissue is not solely an energy storing tissue but secretes a variety of bioactive substances called adipocytokines. This study was designed to elucidate the role of adipose-expressed… CONTINUE READING
