Obesity is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 or above, with progressively increasing prevalence all over the world in recent years. Obesity is characterized by deposition of abnormally increased body fat, resulting from increased energy intake relative to energy expenditure. The condition is associated with several comorbidities that upsurge risk of morbidity. The purpose of this review is to describe the role of oxidative stress in release of pro-inflammatory mediators that… 

Oxidative Imbalance and Kidney Damage in Cafeteria Diet-Induced Rat Model of Metabolic Syndrome: Effect of Bergamot Polyphenolic Fraction

The data show that the link between obesity and renal damage could be represented by oxidative stress, and the effect of bergamot polyphenolic fraction in a cafeteria with diet-fed rats is tested, highlighting its antioxidant effect in the metabolic syndrome.

Oxidative Imbalance and Kidney Damage: New Study Perspectives from Animal Models to Hospitalized Patients

This multilevel approach allowed us to individually and synergistically analyze some aspects of the complex pathogenic mechanisms of CKD in order to clarify the role of the new amplified risk factors for CKD and to prepare an effective personalized prevention plan by acting on both modifiable and nonmodifiable risk factors.

In vitro cell models of vascular calcification: integrative roles for RANKL and TRAIL

It was found that TRAIL co-incubation robustly attenuated RANKL-induced endothelial paracrine signalling, thereby preventing calcification in the underlying smooth muscle and yielding valuable mechanistic information on VC pathogenesis, and on the potential therapeutic value of TRAIL in this context.



Chronic Inflammation in Obesity and the Metabolic Syndrome

The difficulty in the management of obesity/metabolic syndrome is linked to their multifactorial nature where environmental, genetic and psychosocial factors interact through complex networks.

Cluster Differentiating 36 (CD36) Deficiency Attenuates Obesity-Associated Oxidative Stress in the Heart

The study demonstrates that CD36 regulates NADPH oxidase activity and mediates FA-induced oxidative stress and prevented obesity-associated cardiac steatosis and insulin resistance, and reduced NAD PH oxidase-dependent ROS production.

The metabolic syndrome and inflammation.

The general goals of treatment of the MS are prevention of CHD events and diabetes if not already present, and the approach to treatment of those with the MS should include lifestyle changes, including weight loss and exercise as well as appropriate pharmacological therapies.

Obesity and Systemic Oxidative Stress: Clinical Correlates of Oxidative Stress in The Framingham Study

Smoking, diabetes, and body mass index were highly associated with systemic oxidative stress as determined by creatinine-indexed urinary 8-epi-PGF2&agr; levels, which may suggest an important role of oxidative stress in the deleterious impact of obesity on cardiovascular disease.

Relationships of systemic oxidative stress to body fat distribution, adipokines and inflammatory markers in healthy middle-aged women.

Positive associations between 8-epi-PGF(2alpha) and PAI-1, hsCRP, leptin support the notion that oxidative-stress-induced dysregulation of inflammation and adipokines may mediate the obesity-related metabolic derangement.

Oxidative stress in the metabolic syndrome

The oxidative stress that accompanies the metabolic syndrome is associated with both insulin resistance and endothelium-dependent flow-mediated vasodilation, providing a connection which is highly deleterious for vascular functions.

Obesity in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes

The detrimental effects of several adipokines such as TNF, IL6 and RBP4, which are produced in excess by an increased adipose mass, and reduced production of adiponectin are further mechanisms through which obesity potentiates the development of type 2 diabetes.
