Tissue levels of adiponectin, tumour necrosis factor-alpha, soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 and heart-type fatty acid-binding protein in human coronary atherosclerotic plaques.

BACKGROUND There is little information available about any link between the levels of adiponectin, intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and heart-type fatty acid-binding protein (H-FABP) in coronary atherosclerotic plaque specimens. AIM To analyse tissue levels of adiponectin, ICAM-1, TNF-alpha and H-FABP in… (More)
