Table 2 Linear and multiple regression analysis of the anthropometric and metabolic parameters associated with CTRP3 levels in the subjects

From: Serum C1q/TNF-related protein-3 (CTRP3) levels are decreased in obesity and hypertension and are negatively correlated with parameters of insulin resistance
