Table 3 The table shows the circulating plasma concentrations of TNF-α, IL-6 and C-reactive protein, measured in basal period in obese and lean subjects

From: Association between prehypertension, metabolic and inflammatory markers, decreased adiponectin and enhanced insulinemia in obese subjects

  1. TNF-α - tumor necrosis factor-alpha; IL-6 – interleukin 6; CRP – C reactive protein; Values are means ± DP; P values for comparison between groups by non-parametric analysis of Kruskal Wallis; P, comparing all groups: P1, P2 and P3 comparison between groups.
