Table 2 Comparisons of plasma glucose, TNF-α, IL-6 and nitrotyrosine after 75 g OGTT at 120 minutes by the presence of coronary artery disease and the number of significantly stenosed coronary arteries

From: Postchallenge responses of nitrotyrosine and TNF-alpha during 75-g oral glucose tolerance test are associated with the presence of coronary artery diseases in patients with prediabetes
