Table 1 Serum levels of proinflammatory factors (CRP, IL-6, TNF-α, VEGF) and adiponectin plasma concentrations (Me(Q1-Q3)) in patients with MS (23 women) and the control group (10 women)

From: Role of adiponectin and proinflammatory gene expression in adipose tissue chronic inflammation in women with metabolic syndrome

Variable Metabolic syndrome (n = 23) Control group (n = 10)
IL-6 (pg/ml) 4.9 (3.74-6.55) p < 0.05 1.35 (0.55-1.95)
TNF-α (pg/ml) 28.28 (15.26-43.49) p < 0.05 3.30 (2.70-4.55)
VEGF (pg/ml) 180 (160–320) p > 0.05 172 (156–290)
Adiponectin (μg/ml) 2.0 (1.4 – 3.1) p < 0.05 3.6 (2.7–4.2)
  1. p - significance of differences as compared to the control group.
