    The incidence of obesity has increased dramatically during recent decades. Obesity increases the risk for metabolic and cardiovascular diseases and may therefore contribute to premature death. With increasing fat mass, secretion of adipose tissue derived bioactive molecules (adipokines) changes...

    Perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) has been proposed as a cause of atherosclerosis, recently. The location of PVAT is in association with the artery wall, which enables diffusion of adipokines (e.g. superoxide anion, angiotensin II, tumor necrosis factor-α, and adiponectin). The adipokines...

Among them, many adipokines exhibit pro-angiogenic activities including leptin (1), the family of vascular endothelial...
