Table 4 Descriptive statistics for the levels of MMP-9/TIMP-1 and MMP-2/TIMP-2 ratio at three time points, i.e. before radioiodine treatment (RIT), visit 1 (V1), seven days post RIT, visit 2 (V2), and two-three months post RIT, visit 3 (V3), p-value for the Friedman ANNOVA test, Group 2, n=20

From: In contrast to matrix metalloproteinases, serum adiponectin concentrations increase after radioiodine treatment of thyrotoxicosis
