Özet

OBJECTIVE: The present study was proposed to examine the matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in patients with metabolic syndrome (MetS), and to compare these parameters with healthy controls. We also compared the possible association of the circulating levels of MMP-2, MMP-9, TIMP-1, TIMP-2, and VEGF with cardiovascular risk factors in patients with MetS. We also compared the possible association of the circulating levels of MMP-2, MMP-9, TIMP-1, TIMP-2, and VEGF with cardiovascular risk factors in patients with MetS.
