Background: Several cytokines and chemokines are released by adipose tissue and associated with insulin resistance. We investigated the systemic and in vitro release of RANTES(Regulated upon Activation Normal T-cell Expressed and Secreted), MCP-1(Monocyte Chemo-attractant Protein-1), adiponectin, leptin and IL-6 from three human adipose tissue depots and their relationship to insulin sensitivity.Methods: Fasting blood samples were taken from obese...
