Like other adipokines, omentin-1 is secreted from visceral adipose tissue and plays a vital
role in the development of chronic inflammatory diseases, including cardiovascular events. Recent
studies have shown that circulating omentin-1 levels are associated with various metabolic risk
factors, such as high blood pressure, increased waist circumference, dyslipidemia, and glucose intolerance.
The decrease in serum omentin level is an independent predictor of Coronary Artery Disease
(CAD) and is associated with the severity of this disease. Since there is no relevant review in
the literature, we aimed to summarize the studies on the relationship between omentin-1 and CAD.
