Serum Levels of Adiponectin and Ghrelin in Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction
BACKGROUND: Inflammation is widely known to play a key role in the development and progression of cardiovascular diseases. It has been observed that adipokines play an increasingly large role in systemic and local inflammation. Therefore, adipose tissue may have a more important role than previously thought in the pathogenesis of several disease types. We study serum levels of adiponectin and ... Read more

Relationship of Serum Resistin and Adiponectin to Insulin Resistance in Cirrhotic Patients
Background: Liver cirrhosis is a catabolic disease characterized by decreased adipose tissue mass and a proinflammatory state. Although hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance are commonly found in these patients, their exact mechanisms are not fully understood. Among the candidate mediators, the adipokines resistin and adiponectin have been incriminated in experimental animal models. Their exact role in cirrhotic patients remains a subject ... Read more

Metabolic Factors Associated with Heapatic Steatosis and Fibrosis in Patients with Chronic Hepatitis C
OBJECTIVE: Hepatic steatosis is a common histological feature in chronic hepatitis C (CHC), but its pathogenic mechanisms are not completely understood. We aimed to evaluate the metabolic factors associated with hepatic steatosis and fibrosis in CHC patients, and the relation between metabolic syndrome (MS) and CHC. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study included 71 patients with chronic HCV infection who underwent ... Read more
