To determine if measures of adipokines and other blood lipids differentiate between normal controls (NC) and persons with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), we examined levels of leptin, adiponectin, total cholesterol, high density lipoproteins (HDL), calculated low density lipoproteins (LDL), triglycerides and apolipoprotein E allele status in 196 early AD subjects and 198 normal controls. We were unable to demonstrate a significant difference between leptin and adiponectin levels between NC and AD subjects. We were …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
