TLDR
As adiponectin decrease endothelial damage and stimulates production of NO from vascular endothelial cells, hypoadiponectinemia may be partially contribute to thrombus formation. Expand
Is insulin an antiinflammatory molecule?
TLDR
The glucose-insulin-potassium regimen might be beneficial in acute myocardial infarction and useful in the management of patients with septicemia, septic shock, and other inflammatory diseases in which tumor necrosis factor-alpha and macrophage migration-inhibitory factor have important roles. Expand
Adiponectin and Resistin Response in the Onset of Obesity in Male and Female Rats
TLDR
Studying the sex‐dependent response of adiponectin and resistin adipose tissue expression and circulating levels in the onset of dietary obesity finds no significant differences between males and females. Expand
Pathophysiology of Diabetes Mellitus Type 2: Roles of Obesity, Insulin Resistance and Β-Cell Dysfunction
The past two decades have seen an explosive increase in the number of people diagnosed with diabetes mellitus worldwide, particularly type 2 diabetes (T2D), which is found associated with modern lifes
Tumor necrosis factor α, interleukin‐6 and interleukin‐10 polymorphisms in preeclampsia
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to investigate whether cytokine gene polymorphism is associated with PE, and to evaluate the relationship between genotypes and clinical/laboratory manifestation of PE. Expand
Cold Exposure Suppresses Serum Adiponectin Levels through Sympathetic Nerve Activation in Mice
TLDR
The aim was to determine whether adiponectin synthesis is physiologically regulated by the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). Expand
The Impact of Cytokines and Chemokines on Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)
TLDR
In this review proof of the pathophysiological impact of cytokines in NAFLD is noted and examined and the active role that cytokines might play lies in the evolution ofNAFLD by stimulating hepatic inflammation, cell necrosis and apoptosis, as well as by inducing fibrosis. Expand
Increased expression of resistin and tumour necrosis factor‐α in pig adipose tissue as well as effect of feeding treatment on resistin and cAMP pathway
TLDR
It is hypothesized that resistin has the similar roles like those of tumour necrosis factor‐α (TNF‐α), a putative mediator of insulin resistance, and they are in common involved in regulating lipid metabolism in vivo. Expand
Endothelial dysfunction in insulin resistance : the role of EDHF and gap junction communication
TLDR
This work has shown that endothelium-derived hyperpolarising factor (EDHF) plays an important physiological role in the development of vascular complications in insulin resistance and diabetes. Expand
Inflamed about obesity
Two studies find that adipocytes and macrophages have more in common than previously thought. The work bolsters the notion that the inflammatory response might link obesity to afflictions such asExpand

Relation Between Plasma Tumor Necrosis Factor-α and Insulin Sensitivity in Elderly Men With Non–Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus
Abstract—Human obesity is associated with an increased tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) mRNA expression in adipose tissue. TNF-α decreases insulin-dependent glucose uptake by inhibiting autophosphor...
Adipose expression of tumor necrosis factor-alpha: direct role in obesity-linked insulin resistance.
TLDR
A role for TNF-alpha in obesity and particularly in the insulin resistance and diabetes that often accompany obesity is indicated. Expand
Protection from obesity-induced insulin resistance in mice lacking TNF-α function
TLDR
Results indicate that TNF-α is an important mediator of insulin resistance in obesity through its effects on several important sites of insulin action. Expand
Protection from obesity-induced insulin resistance in mice lacking TNF-alpha function.
TLDR
Results indicate that TNF-alpha is an important mediator of insulin resistance in obesity through its effects on several important sites of insulin action. Expand
Tumor Necrosis Factor-α in Sera of Obese Patients: Fall with Weight Loss
TLDR
This study investigated whether serum TNFα concentrations are elevated in obese subjects, whether they fall after weight loss, and whether this fall parallels the fall in insulin release after glucose challenge. Expand
Tumor necrosis factor-alpha contributes to obesity-related hyperleptinemia by regulating leptin release from adipocytes.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that TNF-alpha can act directly on adipocytes to regulate the release of a preformed pool of leptin and that the elevated adipose tissue expression of T NF-alpha that occurs in obesity may contribute to obesity-related hyperleptinemia. Expand
Tumor necrosis factor-alpha in sera of obese patients: fall with weight loss.
TLDR
It is concluded that obesity is associated with increased plasma TNFalpha concentrations, which fall with weight loss, and an important circulating cytokine, which may provide a potentially reversible mechanism for mediating insulin resistance. Expand
Functional analysis of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptors in TNF-alpha-mediated insulin resistance in genetic obesity.
TLDR
Results indicate that TNF-alpha is a component of insulin resistance in the ob/ob model of murine obesity and p55 TNFR is the predominant receptor mediating its actions. Expand
Elevated serum tumour necrosis factor-alpha levels can contribute to the insulin resistance in Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes and in obesity
TLDR
Investigation of serum TNFa bioactivity in Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus and obesity found that the role of TNF-a can be raised in insulin resistance and hyperinsulinaemia. Expand
Targeted Disruption of the Tumor Necrosis Factor-α Gene: Metabolic Consequences in Obese and Nonobese Mice
TLDR
It is concluded that T NF-α functions to regulate plasma triglycerides and body adiposity and that although TNF-α contributes to reduced insulin sensitivity in older or obese mice, the absence of TNF -α is not sufficient to substantially protect against insulin resistance in the GTG hyperphagic model of rodent obesity.
