Background: Adiponectin has been linked to the metabolic syndrome and coronary artery disease in recent years. The animal and human data also suggest that adiponectin may be beneficial for liver functions. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between plasma adiponectin level and liver function tests in adults with or without chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection.
