Background Increased C-reactive protein (CRP) levels strongly predict inflammatory diseases such as obesity and tissue damage. We wanted to study the CRP in plasma and tissue in morbidly obese patients before and after surgery and relate it with the expression of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) in tissues.
Background The relationship between C-reactive protein (CRP), nitric oxide (NO), leptin, adiponectin, and insulin growth factor 1 (IGF-1) is poorly defined in morbidly obese patients before and after gastric bypass and, in some cases, is controversial.
