Effect of an Anti-Oxidant Treatment on Resistin Serum Levels.A Randomized Study
The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether an in vivo treatment with an antioxidant vitamin (vitamin C) might substantially affect serum levels of resistin, a recently described adipokine, whose clinical significance is still controversial in humans.
