Maternal obesity and markers of inflammation in pregnancy.
OBJECTIVES To evaluate whether obesity is associated with changes in pro-inflammatory and immunomodulatory cytokines in pregnancy. METHODS We performed a cross-sectional study using maternal serum… Expand
Gastric bypass model in the obese rat to study metabolic mechanisms of weight loss.
A rat model replicating gastric bypass with Roux-en-Y (GB) as used in morbidly obese patients, evolved in our laboratory in stages, using the Zucker rat as an obese model (GB) is presented. In the… Expand
Is obesity an inflammatory disease?
BACKGROUND Most obese individuals have elevated concentrations of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), markers of inflammation closely associated with diabetes,… Expand

Obesity affects 30% of the United States population and its detrimental effects are obesity-related metabolic diseases. For patients refractory to conventional weight loss therapy, gastric bypass… Expand
Gene expression profiles post Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
BACKGROUND The hypothalamus is involved in regulation of food intake (FI) and fat deposition. Molecular mechanisms of weight loss after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) were studied by correlating… Expand
