Adiponectin has protective activity against atherosclerosis and inflammation, in humans, low plasma adiponectin levels have been associated with coronary artery disease. Therefore, evaluation of Toll-like receptor 4 expression on peripheral blood monocytes and measurement of serum adiponectin level in patients with CAD were done to determine the role of TLR-4 in the development CAD and the relation of serum adiponectin level to risk factors of the disease.
