Adiponectin: Plasma biomarker for osteonecrosis of the femoral head

A recent study utilized an adiponektin ELISA kit that is available on antibodies-online. The study examined whether plasma adiponectin levels are correlated with osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH). Adiponektin may be a useful biomarker, since patients with nontraumatic ONFH had significantly lower plasma levels of adiponectin than the healthy controls. Other factors, such as plasma LDL, HDL, , apo B, Cholesterol, TGs and CRP showed no correlation.
