Figure 5

Correlations between AdipoQ α gene expression in OAT and plasma adiponectin levels (a),serum VEGF levels (b), VEGF-A gene expression in OAT (c), between and TNF-α gene expression in OAT and serum TNF-α levels (d), IL-6 gene expression in OAT and content of CD14 + cells in the peripheral blood (e). The gene expression levels were assessed by quantitative real-time PCR assay in OAT from 23 women with MS and the control group (10 women). The Pearson correlation coefficients (r) are shown on the figure and the P value if statistically significant with a P < 0.05.
