Abstract: Obesity promotes the development of a variety of diseases including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, fatty liver, and cancer. As obesity is characterized by a chronic state of low-grade inflammation distinguished by immune cell infiltration into the adipose tissue, a model demonstrating this inflammatory state is needed to better understand the disease itself as well as how it af... read more
