Evaluation of toll-like receptor 2 and 4 RNA expression and the cytokine profile in postmenopausal women with metabolic syndrome
Metabolic Syndrome X
Toll-Like Receptor 2
Toll-Like Receptor 4
TLR-2 and TLR-4 expressions were associated with increased pro-inflammatory cytokines, IL-6 and TNF-α, with no association with biomarkers of MetS. The low concentrations of IL-10 may suggest an anti-inflammatory modulation in postmenopausal women with MetS.
