The objective of this study was to develop a scoring system (NutriGrade) to evaluate the quality of evidence of randomized controlled trial (RCT) and cohort study meta-analyses in nutrition research, building upon previous tools and expert recommendations. NutriGrade aims to assess the meta-evidence of an association or effect between different nutrition(More)
Plant-based dietary interventions have been proposed to reduce obesity induced chronic low-grade inflammation and hence prevent chronic disease risk; however, human evidence remains unclear. This systematic review and meta-analysis of intervention trials aimed to assess the effect of plant-based diets on obesity-related inflammatory biomarker profiles.(More)
BACKGROUND Adipokines could pose a link between adiposity, systemic inflammation and metabolic disease risk. However, it is unclear whether representative biomarkers are methodologically suitable for use in human obesity research. METHODS We assessed the intra-individual reproducibility of selected adipokines in a sample of 207, apparently healthy,(More)
Chemerin is a recently discovered adipokine with inflammatory and metabolic actions relevant for chronic disease development. However, evidence from human research on the role of chemerin in chronic disease risk is still lacking. We assessed the reliability of plasma chemerin concentrations measured on two occasions over a 4-month period in 207 apparently(More)
OBJECTIVE Obesity-induced inflammation potentially promotes a variety of chronic conditions. This study aimed to summarize cross-sectional associations between adipose tissue-derived hormones (leptin and adiponectin) and inflammatory biomarkers (C-reactive protein [CRP], interleukin [IL]-6, and tumor necrosis factor [TNF]-α) by means of meta-analysis.
