Table 2 Association between adipocytokines and infrapatellar fat pad volume

From: Serum levels of interleukin-17 and adiponectin are associated with infrapatellar fat pad volume and signal intensity alteration in patients with knee osteoarthritis

Adipocytokines Multivariablea β (95 % CI) p Value Multivariable β (95 % CI) p Value
