Obesity is quickly becoming a pandemic. The low-grade chronic inammation associated with obesity leads to health risks such as cancer, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes mellitus. To better understand the progression of obesityrelated chronic inammation, mice were fed either a high fat or low fat diet over 140 days. At days 0, 35, 70, and 140, the percentages of macrophage subsets, CD4+ T cells, and regulatory-T cells inltrating the intra-abdominal white adipose tissue (WAT) were examined… Expand
