Weight loss and macrophages

Foi publicado recentemente o trabalho

Kosteli A, Sugaru E, Haemmerle G, Martin JF, Lei J, Zechner R, & Ferrante AW Jr (2010). Weight loss and lipolysis promote a dynamic immune response in murine adipose tissue. The Journal of clinical investigation, 120 (10), 3466-79 PMID: 20877011
e mereceu um comentário interessante no blog  We, beasties de Kevin (Kevin is getting his PhD in Immunology studying the signaling networks down stream of Toll-like Receptors (TLRs). He thinks the immune system is mostly useless in the face of pathogenic microbes, which causes no small amount of existential angst.)
"So why is there an immune response when you lose weight?"
