Association between adiponectin levels and endometrial carcinoma risk: evidence from a dose-response meta-analysis.

Lin T, Zhao X, Kong WM - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Pertinent studies were identified by a search of PubMed and Web of Knowledge through January of 2015.A random-effects model was used to combine the data for analysis.Dose-response relationship was assessed by restricted cubic spline and variance-weighted least squares regression analysis.

BMJOPEN2015008541F2: The forest plot between highest versus lowest categories of adiponectin levels and endometrial carcinoma risk.

Mentions: Six of the studies included in our analysis reported an inverse association of adiponectin levels with the risk of endometrial carcinoma, while no significant association was reported in six studies. Our pooled results suggested that the highest adiponectin levels compared to the lowest levels were significantly associated with the risk of endometrial carcinoma (summary RR=0.525, 95% CI 0.388 to 0.712, I2=64.2%) (figure 2).
