Purpose: Metabolic syndrome (MetS) and obesity have increasingly been reported in survivors of childhood cancer. Osteopontin (OPN) is primarily synthesized in adipose tissue and is thought to have a role in obesity and the development of insulin resistance (IR). The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency of MetS in survivors of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and to establish the relationship between serum OPN levels and anthropometric measurements and glucose metabolism.
