Abstract

Adipokines are known to play a relevant role in a number of cancer related molecular pathways. Adiponectin is a major adipokine with anti-inflammatory and beneficial metabolic actions. Furthermore, it has been shown to exert anti-carcinogenic effects in various tumor models and some clinical studies suggested an inverse relationship between circulating levels of adiponectin and an increased risk for development of malignancies. On the other hand, the cyclic AMP response element binding (CREB) transcription factor has been clearly linked to lung cancer.
