Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to find out the relationship between Malnutrition-Inflammation score (MIS) and the endothelial function parameters, including measurements of flow-mediated vasodilatation (FMD) in the brachial artery and serum vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1). Furthermore, predictors of FMD were also assessed.
