liver fibrosis caused by leptin. Recent evidence from our laboratory has indicated that adiponectin might be a natural antagonist of leptin, and further revealed that adiponectin did not alleviate the inflammation of the blood vessels, rather it reduced

Introduction In obesity, there is an increased amount of macrophages in the adipose tissue (AT), which is associated with low-grade inflammation and insulin resistance ( Weisberg et al . 2003 , Dandona et al . 2004 ). CD163 is a membrane
