Interaction Information:

Comment Overnutrition and obesity are often accompanied by elevations in tissue and circulating FFA concentrations, and saturated FFAs can directly activate pro-inflammatory responses in vascular endothelial cells, adipocytes and myeloid-derived cells. The result of these obesity-induced physiologic events is the development of systemic inflammation.
