  • Adiponectin, secreted by adipose tissue, protects against the development of the main form of liver cancer
  • Women produce the hormone in larger quantities than men, and adiponectin release also declines in people with obesity
  • The results open the route to combating a cancer for which there is currently no treatment and that is the fourth cause of death in the world.
