Vilnius, Lithuania. In Int Arch Allergy Immunol, Feb 2016
RESULTS: Serum levels of adiponectin, chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 5 (CCL5), C-reactive protein (CRP), chitinase 3-like 1 (CHI3L1), complement factor D (CFD), endoglin, lipocalin-2, osteopontin, retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4), and platelet factor 4 (PF4) were significantly higher, whereas levels of trefoil factor 3 (TFF3) were significantly lower, in ACD patients than in healthy controls.
