  1. Statistically significant relationships of pre-treatment concentrations of macrophage inhibitory cytokine-1 (MIC-1) with anthropometric, hormonal and biochemical parameters calculated in a combined population of normal-weight healthy women and untreated patients with anorexia nervosa (n = 41). Statistical significance is from Spearman Correlation Test. Correlations were controlled for body mass index (BMI). AN - anorexia nervosa, C - control group, LBM - lean body mass, BMD - bone mineral density, REE - resting energy expenditure
