Özet

Objective Adiponectin is an adipose tissue-specific protein that has anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic and antiobesity effects. It has been suggested that adiponectin has a hepatoprotective role. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is becoming more prevalent with increasingly adverse clinical outcomes. In this study, serum adiponectin levels were investigated in patients with NAFLD to determine its possible role on hepatic inflammation and injury.
