Adipokines correlate with pain in lower limb osteoarthritis: different associations in hip and knee
Sylvette Bas, Axel Finckh, Gabor Puskas, Domizio Suva, Pierre Hoffmeyer, Cem Gabay & Anne Lübbeke
Our findings support a connection between intra-articular concentrations of several adipokines and severity of preoperative OA pain. However, the specific adipokines differed by joints: in hip OA, pain was associated with IL-6 and visfatin and in knee OA with adiponectin; leptin played a role in both hip and knee OA.
