Obesity is associated with an increased colon cancer incidence, but underlying mechanisms remained unclear. Previous studies showed altered Natural killer (NK) cell functions in obese individuals. Therefore, we studied the impact of an impaired NK cell functionality on the increased colon cancer risk in obesity. In vitro investigations demonstrated a(More)
Obesity leads to an altered adipocytokine production negatively effecting the function of natural killer cells (NK cells), which are important effector cells of the innate immune system. NK cells provide a defence against tumour cells or virus infected cells and have different activating and inhibitory surface receptors to distinguish between normal and(More)
