21) In humans, few studies have investigated circulating levels of TNF-[alpha], sTNFR1, and sTNFR2 in infectious uveitis.
The distinct behavior of sTNFR1 and sTNFR2 in TR is not unique and has been reported in other infectious diseases.
Table 2--Serum levels (pg-mL) of TNF-[alpha], sTNFRl and sTNFR2 in toxoplasmic retinochoroidits (TR) patients and controls.
Persons with type 2 diabetes who carried the -308A allele had significantly higher circulating concentrations of sTNFR2 and lower adiponectin concentrations than those with the -308G/G genotype, independent of BMI and HOMA-IR (adjusted OR, 1.
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN sTNFR2 CONCENTRATIONS AND ANTHTOPOMETRIC VARIABLES IN PERSONS WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES
Among participants with type 2 diabetes, we found a significantly positive correlation between sTNFR2 concentrations and measures of obesity such as BMI (r = 0.
An important finding of our study is that the -308A allele of the TNF-[alpha] gene was associated with decreased circulating adiponectin concentrations and increased sTNFR2 concentrations in persons with type 2 diabetes, independent of insulin
Indeed, we found that sTNFR2 concentrations were positively correlated with BMI, WHR, and SAD.
