The association between pentraxin 3 and insulin resistance in obese children at baseline and after physical activity intervention.


BACKGROUND The role of pentraxin-3 (PTX3) in the development of insulin resistance is still not clear. We aimed to test 1) whether circulating PTX3 levels are associated with insulin resistance and 2) whether changes in PTX3 levels after the physical activity are associated with changes in insulin resistance. METHODS Fifty-seven overweight or obese… (More)
