Influence of ADIPOQ 45 T > G and IL6 -174G > C polymorphisms on plasma inflammatory biomarkers. Box plots represent plasma concentration of IL-6, IL-1β and TNF-α according to ADIPOQ 45 T > G and IL6 -174G > C genotypes. Values of wild type genotypes (WT) were compared with variant allele carriers for each polymorphism using the Mann–Whitney Rank sum test. p-values are indicated in the figure for each comparison. NS: no significant.
