  1. Relationships of pre-treatment and post-treatment concentrations of macrophage inhibitory cytokine-1 (MIC-1) with anthropometric, hormonal and biochemical parameters calculated separately in a group of anorexia nervosa patients (n = 16). 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, NRI-2 - post-treatment nutritional risk index (Buzby), IGF-1, insulin-like growth factor, GLU-2 - post-treatment glucose, TP-2, post-treatment total serum protein
