Key Role of Kidney Function: Resistin Level in Coronary Artery Disease

 Resistin, a novel adipocytokine, is associated with inflammation and insulin resistance; both mechanisms are known to increase risk for heart failure (HF). We studied 2904 older persons without HF (age 73.3±2.8 years, 47.9% men, 58.6% whites) enrolled in the Health ABC study who underwent serum resistin measurements at baseline. Participants were divided into groups based on tertiles of resistin concentrations and rates of incident HF (defined as hospitalization for new onset HF) were compared by Cox proportional hazards models. After 7.1 year median follow-up 252 participants (8.7%) developed HF. Increasing resistin concentrations were significantly associated with increasing incident HF rates. After adjusting for baseline differences (including body mass index) and predictors of incident HF (age, coronary disease, smoking, blood pressure, heart rate, serum glucose, creatinine, and albumin concentrations, and left ventricular hypertrophy), serum resistin concentrations were independently associated with incident HF [highest vs. lowest tertile hazard ratio (HR) 1.96, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.35–2.82)
