Adipocyte HDAC4 activation leads to beige adipocyte expansion and reduced adiposity.

Numerous studies have suggested that beige adipocyte abundance is correlated with improved metabolic performance, but direct evidence showing that beige adipocyte expansion protects animals from the development of obesity is missing. Previously, we have described that the Liver kinase b1 (Lkb1) regulates beige adipocyte renaissance in subcutaneous inguinal white adipose tissue (iWAT) through a cla...

Minor role of mature adipocyte mineralocorticoid receptor in high fat induced obesity.

Obesity is a major risk factor that contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) expression is increased in the adipose tissue of obese patients and several studies provide evidence that MR pharmacological antagonism improves glucose metabolism in genetic and diet-induced mouse models of obesity. In order to investigate whether the la...

Knowledge of obesity related pregnancy risks among expectant mothers and its associated factors.

Obesity in pregnancy causes both maternal and foetal complications hence adequate knowledge of obesity related pregnancy risks would ensure better outcomes. This study aims to determine the knowledge of obesity related pregnancy risks among pregnant women.

Modulation of gut microbiota from obese individuals by in vitro fermentation of citrus pectin in combination with Bifidobacterium longum BB-46.

This study aimed to evaluate the effects of three treatments, i.e., Bifidobacterium longum BB-46 (T1), B. longum BB-46 combined with the pectin (T2), and harsh extracted pectin from lemon (T3) on obesity-related microbiota using the Simulator of the Human Intestinal Microbial Ecosystem (SHIME®). The effects of the treatments were assessed by the analysis of the intestinal microbial composition (u...

Adherence to the Mediterranean diet in metabolically healthy and unhealthy overweight and obese European adolescents: the HELENA study.

To examine the adherence to the Mediterranean dietary pattern (MDP) in metabolically healthy overweight or obese (MHO) and metabolically unhealthy obese (MUO) European adolescents.

Bariatric Surgery Waiting Lists in Spain.

Bariatric surgery is one of the most common general surgery procedures in countries that, like Spain, have public healthcare systems, but is also one of the procedures for which patients have to wait the longest. The Spanish Society of Obesity Surgery (SECO) conducted a survey to estimate the situation of bariatric surgery waiting lists in Spain's public hospitals and to gather information on a nu...

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Resolves NAFLD: Another Formal Indication for Bariatric Surgery?

Obesity is strongly associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD); 66-99% of the obese population could suffer some grade of NAFLD. It can progress into cirrhosis, which is associated to hepatocellular carcinoma, and a liver transplant could be indicated. NAFLD represents the third cause of liver transplant, and it is expected to be the first by 2025. Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) is the mos...

Reply to Letter to the Editor in Response to "Elipse Balloon: the Pitfalls of Excessive Simplicity".

IFSO Worldwide Survey 2016: Primary, Endoluminal, and Revisional Procedures.

The International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders (IFSO), being a Federation of 62 national societies, is the ideal network to monitor the number and type of procedures at a global level. The IFSO survey, enriched with a special section on revisional procedures, aims to report the number and types of bariatric procedures performed worldwide in 2016 and analyzes the su...

Genetics of Severe Obesity.

This review aims to present current information on genes underlying severe obesity, with the main emphasis on the three genes LEP, LEPR and MC4R.

The Effects of Cholesterol-Derived Oncometabolites on Nuclear Receptor Function in Cancer.

Epidemiologic studies are controversial concerning the roles played by cholesterol in cancer risk and development, possibly as it is not cholesterol per se that is pathologic in cancers. Indeed, recent data reveal that the cholesterol metabolism in cancer cells can generate endogenous oncopromoter metabolites at higher levels compared with normal tissues and/or can be deregulated in the production...

Hepatic fat content and bone mineral density in children with overweight/obesity.

To examine the influence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and hepatic fat content on bone mineral density (BMD), and to investigate whether the relationship between NAFLD and BMD is independent of lifestyle factors related to BMD.

The impact of rising food prices on obesity in women: a longitudinal analysis of 31 low-income and middle-income countries from 2000 to 2014.

To examine whether changes in food prices are associated with changes in obesity prevalence among women in developing countries, and assess effect modification by individual socioeconomic status (SES).

Single-nucleotide polymorphisms in a cohort of significantly obese women without cardiometabolic diseases.

Obesity is an important risk factor for the development of diseases such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and dyslipidemia; however, a small number of individuals with long-standing obesity do not present with these cardiometabolic diseases. Such individuals are referred to as metabolically healthy obese (MHO) and potentially represent a subgroup of the general population with a protective gene...

Socioeconomic inequalities in weight, height and body mass index from birth to 5 years.

Studies in high-income countries show that despite the positive association of weight with socioeconomic position at birth, an inverse socioeconomic gradient in overweight (OW) appears later in childhood. The objectives were to understand the natural history of socioeconomic inequalities in weight, height and body mass index (BMI), by investigating their associations with maternal educational leve...

Repeat length variations in polyglutamine disease-associated genes affect body mass index.

The worldwide prevalence of obesity, a major risk factor for numerous debilitating chronic disorders, is increasing rapidly. Although a substantial amount of the variation in body mass index (BMI) is estimated to be heritable, the largest meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to date explained only ~2.7% of the variation. To tackle this 'missing heritability' problem of obesity, ...

Catalase and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

Obesity and insulin resistance are considered the main causes of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and oxidative stress accelerates the progression of NAFLD. Free fatty acids, which are elevated in the liver by obesity or insulin resistance, lead to incomplete oxidation in the mitochondria, peroxisomes, and microsomes, leading to the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Among the R...

EUS-Guided Intragastric Injection of Botulinum Toxin A in the Preoperative Treatment of Super-Obese Patients: a Randomized Clinical Trial.

Obesity is a disease that is highly prevalent in Brazil, and the associated comorbidities represent a major global public health challenge. Botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) is a potent neurotoxin and inhibitor of gastric smooth muscle activity. In theory, BTX-A administration should promote early satiety and weight loss because it delays gastric emptying by inhibiting acetylcholine-mediated peristal...

Liraglutide and weight loss among patients with advanced heart failure and a reduced ejection fraction: insights from the FIGHT trial.

Obesity is present in up to 45% of patients with heart failure (HF). Liraglutide, a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor antagonist, facilitates weight loss in obese patients. The efficacy of liraglutide as a weight loss agent among patients with HF and reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) and a recent acute HF hospitalization remains unknown.

Induction of beige adipocytes by naturally occurring β3-adrenoceptor agonist p-synephrine.

The prevalence of obesity and its associated diseases is increasing worldwide, and the therapeutic potential of increasing energy expenditure through differentiation or activation of beige adipocytes has attracted much interest.
