Circulating levels of sICAM-1
and sVCAM-1 have been predictive of CVD risk in cohort studies (Blankenberg et al.
The plasma levels of the pro-inflammatory proteins IL-6 and sICAM-1
were measured in both groups of soccer players.
Increased serum levels of sICAM-1
and sVCAM-1 have been shown to correlate with progression of endothelial damage and inflammatory diseases including Type II diabetes.
The results suggest that measuring maternal serum CRP and sICAM-1
at hospital admission may identify those patients at higher risk for postoperative infection," said Dr.
Atherogenic index and BMI z-score were significant predictors of cIMTmin, and overweight and sICAM-1
were marginal predictors, whereas age and sex were not associated with cIMT (Table 2).
When adiposity-related factors were compared across quartiles of adiponectin (Table 2), BMI, waist circumference, plasma hsCRP, and IL-6 progressively decreased with increasing adiponectin in both white and black women, whereas sICAM-1
was only slightly lower in higher quartiles of adiponectin in white, but not black, women.
The specific objectives were to assess their serum levels of CRP, sICAM-1
and Hsp27 antigen and antibodies, and to determine their association with age, adiposity and dietary intakes of macro- and micro-nutrients.

After 4 hours, sICAM-1
significantly decreased in the pomegranate juice group, and after 1 month it decreased in total and pomegranate juice group.
However, whether increases in serum sICAM-1
concentration early in life are associated with subclinical cardiovascular disease is not well established.
The authors reported that SHS exposure was associated with hs-CRP but not with IL-6 or sICAM-1
