The purpose of this paper is to identify immunologic hallmarks of excessive bodyweight. The analysis is based on 176 adults (106 women, 70 men) who participated in a nested case-control study in Italy. All participants were healthy at the time of blood collection and aged between 36 and 75 years. We employed multivariate analysis of variance and a nonparametric Bayesian additive regression tree approach along with a receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis to determine the… 
Serum IL-12 Is Increased in Mexican Obese Subjects and Associated with Low-Grade Inflammation and Obesity-Related Parameters
TLDR
Serum levels of IL-12 are increased in overweight and obese individuals and show a strong relationship with markers of low-grade inflammation and obesity in the Mexican adult population.
Patients affected by metabolic syndrome show decreased levels of circulating platelet derived growth factor (PDGF)-BB.
TLDR
The current demonstration that MetS is associated with decrease of the pro-fibrotic PDGF cytokine is a completely novel finding, which adds complexity to the interplay between inflammation and fibrosis in patients affected by MetS.
Hyperleptinemia is associated with parameters of low-grade systemic inflammation and metabolic dysfunction in obese human beings
TLDR
Results suggest that hyperleptinemia is strongly associated with the occurrence of low-grade systemic inflammation and metabolic alteration in obese subjects, and further clinical research is still needed to determine whether hyperleaptinemia may be a potential marker for recognizing the advent of obesity-related metabolic disorders in human beings.
Lymphoma; Pre-diagnostic Blood Markers and Occupational and Environmental Exposures.
TLDR
The studies support that subtle perturbations in the immune system may precede lymphoma development and suggest that B cell activation, chronic inflammation and/or an unbalance in Th1/Th2-responses are likely important phenomena in lymphomagenesis.
Persistent low body weight in humans is associated with higher mitochondrial activity in white adipose tissue
TLDR
It is proposed that increased mitochondrial function in adipose tissue is an important mediator in sustaining the low body weight in CT individuals and could ultimately allow more targeted approaches for weight management treatment strategies.
Creatine kinase is associated with reduced inflammation in a general population: The Tromsø study
Background Creatine kinase (CK) has been associated with reduced inflammation in obesity while inflammation is associated with obesity-related cardiovascular diseases. We investigated the
Thyroid Autoimmunity: An Interplay of Factors.
TLDR
Thyroid autoimmunity is the result of an interplay of factors, with adipokines produced by WAT and vitamin D providing immune modulating signals external to the thyroid, while thyrocyte innate responses to environmental conditions provide the necessary adjuvant signal.
The outliers become a stampede as immunometabolism reaches a tipping point
TLDR
Animal model studies show that interruption of immune cell‐mediated inflammation by any one of several methods almost invariably results in the prevention or delay of obesity and/or IR, and seemingly contradictory results indicate that a more comprehensive understanding of human IR/T2D‐associated immune cell function is needed to leverage animal studies into clinical treatments.
A review of the role of lymphoma markers and occupational and environmental exposures
TLDR
Although the existing epidemiologic studies have not revealed consistent patterns of perturbations of the immune system by these factors, the findings might suggest an adverse impact on both the humoral and cell-mediated immune system.
Effect of NUCKS-1 overexpression on cytokine profiling in obese women with breast cancer.
TLDR
Evaluation of cytokine levels as well as related gene expression may provide a new tool for understanding interactions for three axes of carcinogenesis, innate immunity, inflammation and cell cycling, and hope for new strategies of management.

Interleukin-1 system gene polymorphisms are associated with fat mass in young men.
TLDR
The IL-1 system, recently shown to affect fat mass in experimental animals, contains gene polymorphisms that are associated withfat mass in young men, and these polymorphisms did not correlate with the fat measurements.
Association between interleukin-1 beta polymorphism (+3953) and obesity
TLDR
This study corroborates the idea that the IL-1 system is linked to the development of obesity, and observed higher T allele (CT/TT) frequency in non-overweight than overweight and obese groups.
Differential Expression of Chemokines, Risk of Stable Coronary Heart Disease, and Correlation with Established Cardiovascular Risk Markers
TLDR
There may be no universal upregulation of chemokines in CHD-associated inflammation but different up regulation of IP-10 and IL-8 versus downregulation of RANTES; there was no clear disease association for MCP-1, MIP-1&agr;, or eotaxin.
Plasma interleukin-8 concentrations are increased in obese subjects and related to fat mass and tumor necrosis factor-alpha system.
TLDR
It is concluded that plasma IL-8 levels are increased in obese subjects, and are related to FM and TNF-alpha system.
Association between Interleukin-1B C-31T Polymorphism and Obesity in Japanese
TLDR
Men and women with the TT genotype of IL-1B C-31T had a higher risk for obesity than those with the CC genotype and the confounding factor-adjusted odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for obesity were calculated.
Plasma Cytokines and Future Risk of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL): A Case-Control Study Nested in the Italian European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition
TLDR
The results of this study suggest a possible association between plasma levels of IL2, ICAM, IFN-γ, and TNF-α with NHL risk and provide some evidence that risk of NHL might be related to a downregulation of T helper 1 cytokines.
Circulating levels of MCP-1 and IL-8 are elevated in human obese subjects and associated with obesity-related parameters
TLDR
The findings suggest that the circulating MCP-1 and/or IL-8 may be a potential candidate linking obesity with obesity-related metabolic complications such as atherosclerosis and diabetes.
Body fat and stroke: unmasking the hazards of overweight and obesity.
TLDR
The results seem to explain why excess body fat has previously been consistently related to hypertension and diabetes mellitus but less consistently to stroke.
Mature-Onset Obesity in Interleukin-1 Receptor I Knockout Mice
TLDR
It is concluded that lack of IL-1RI–mediated biological activity causes mature-onset obesity, and this obese phenotype is preceded by decreased leptin sensitivity, fat utilization, and locomotor activity.

TLDR
The waist-hip ratio was positively and significantly associated with deaths from all causes, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes and a less significant positive association was found for death from cancer.
