Adipose tissue macrophage (ATM)-mediated inflammation is a key feature contributing to the adverse metabolic outcomes of dietary obesity. Recruitment of macrophages to obese adipose tissues (AT) can occur through the engagement of CCR2, the receptor for MCP-1 (monocyte chemoattractant protein-1), which is expressed on peripheral monocytes/macrophages.

We hypothesized that combined delivery of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and angiopoietin-1 (Ang-1) using microsphere/hydrogel hybrid systems could enhance mature vessel formation compared with administration of each factor alone. Hybrid delivery systems composed of alginate hydrogels and poly(D,L-lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) microspheres(More)
