Background: Obesity is associated with chronic low-grade inflammation that contributes to the development of metabolic syndrome (MS). Resistin, produced by neutrophils and monocytes, displays potent proinflammatory properties and has been associated with cardiometabolic disease. The aim of this study was to (a) determine serum resistin levels among obese patients with or without MS and (b) explore the role of the subsets of circulating white blood cells as potential determinan...
