Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a chronic metabolic disorder, which was also found to involve a series of inflammatory disorders, including accumulation of macrophages and T cells in the adipose tissue, increased proinflammatory cytokine production, shifting of macrophage composition toward M1-type, and skewing of peripheral blood T cells toward IL-17 productions.(More)
Mechanisms of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) remain elusive, in which obesity (OB) is considered as one of the major risk factors for the disease. A microRNA (miRNA) is a small non-coding RNA molecule functioning in RNA silencing and post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. It has been demonstrated that some miRNAs can exist in serum stably and(More)
Bariatric surgeries, including Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) are currently the best treatment for obesity and obesity-related comorbidities, such as type 2 diabetes. However, the underlying mechanism of bariatric surgeries is not entirely understood. Further investigations are needed to improve the success rate and achieve sustained health benefits. Given(More)
Bariatric surgery is currently the most effective strategy in treating severe obesity and its comorbidities, such as type 2 diabetes (T2D). However, the mechanism through which bariatric surgery mediates its benefits is not completely understood. Since obesity and T2D represent yet another inflammatory disease, and follicular helper T (Tfh) cells play(More)
