    Abstract : Obesity is a complex and a highly individualized disease and the molecular mechanisms behind this disorder need to be better elucidated. Identification of genes and genetic variants that are involved provide opportunities to establish a genetic understanding of the disease. READ MORE

  2. 2. Metabolic effects of interleukin-6

    Author : Ingrid Wernstedt; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : IL-6; cytokine; obesity; energy expenditure; lipolysis; ASP; sympathetic nervous system; exercise; -174 G C IL-6 polymorphism; fat mass; stress response; cerebrospinal fluid;

    Abstract : The levels of the cytokine interleukin-6 (IL-6) in the circulation are positively correlated with indices of obesity and metabolic disturbances. Paradoxically, plasma IL-6 levels increase markedly during prolonged and strenuous exercise, mainly due to increased production and release from working skeletal muscle. READ MORE

    Abstract : BackgroundObesity, in particular abdominal adiposity, is associated with elevated fatty acids and pro-inflammatory adipokines, which are linked to ectopic fat storage and insulin resistance. During menopause, there is a redistribution of fat from the peripheral to abdominal depots. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sweet Taste Perception in Relation to Oral and General Health

    Author : Heba Ashi; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; BMI; Caries prevalence; Children; Dental caries; Dietary habits; Obesity; Plaque pH; Pregnancy; Sweet taste perception;

    Abstract : The aims of this thesis were to study the difference in sweet taste perception, dental caries and BMI between three different geographical areas (Italy, Mexico and Saudi Arabia) and to elucidate the relationship of sweet taste perception with caries and BMI. Dietary habits were also assessed in relation to sweet taste perception in Saudi Arabia. READ MORE
