Figure 1

Comparison of mean adipocytokines levels between cases (black bars) of IHD and CVD and their controls (white bars). โˆ— ๐‘ƒ < 0 . 0 5 , โˆ— โˆ— ๐‘ƒ < 0 . 0 1 . (a) Adiponectin is significantly reduced only in IHD with respect to controls. (b) RBP4 is reduced in a significant manner in IHD and increased significantly in CVD with respect to controls. (c) aFABP is significantly increased only in CVD with respect to controls. (d) Visfatin is significantly reduced both in IHD and CVD with respect to controls.
