Correlation between leptin serum levels with lipid profile and anthropometric indices in women with different grades of obesity
Background and Objective: Leptin is a 16 KDa peptide which has a close correlation with adiposity. However, its effect on lipid profile is controversial in human. Therefore, this study was performed to investigate correlation ...
Correlation of inflammatory cytokines with lipid profile in different grades of obesity
[No abstract available]
Association between C-reactive protein and HbA1C among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus
Background: Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a common metabolic disorder witht increasing prevalence is increasing worldwide. C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a marker of systemic inflammation and an independent risk factor for ...
Evaluation of correlation between IGF-I and leptin in type II diabetic patients and healthy controls
Background: Diabetes is a common endocrine disease in human kind. In most type II diabetic patients, obesity and overweight status account as the serious health problems worldwide and variety of endocrine factors well known ...
Serum leptin level is reduced in non-obese subjects with type 2 diabetes
Background: Leptin, a protein released from adipose tissue, could have significant role in pathogenesis of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate variations in serum leptin levels ...
Serum levels of adiponectin in non-diabetic and diabetic obese individuals
Background: Adiponectin is an adipose tissue-derived hormone that low levels of this hormone are associated with obesity, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes. The aim of this study was to compare the serum levels of ...
Plasma leptin, hTERT gene expression, and anthropometric measures in obese and non-obese women with breast cancer
Introduction: Expression of human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) occurs in most cancers but its relation with obesity is unclear. This study explores the association between leptin levels and anthropometric indices ...
Relationship between DHEA and DHEA-S with anthropometric indices in women with different grades of obesity
Introduction: Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) are the most abundant steroids in human plasma. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between DHEA and DHEA-S and ...
On-admission level of serum d-dimer and the severity of community-acquired pneumonia
This study aims at evaluating on-admission serum level of d-dimer in patients with community-acquired pneumonia concerning the severity of the disease and in-hospital outcome of the patients. Sixty patients with ...
Relationship of serum resistin level with insulin resistance indices in non-diabetic and diabetic obese subjects
Background: Resistin, an adipocyte secreted factor, has been suggested to link obesity with type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance in rodent models but its relevance to human diabetes remains uncertain. The aim of this ...
