The research presented in this volume explores adipose tissue as an essential endocrine organ that produces and secretes an identifiable set of specific adipokines and how this adipokine production arises from varying physiologic and pathologic states. In states of obesity, the production profile of these adipokines is altered to one that promotes low-grade systemic inflammation, contributing to the metabolic defects underlying type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular diseases. The 15 papers investigate insulin and growth hormone as modulators of adipose inflammation, review the potential roles of plant sterols and phytoestrogens in reducing inflammatory-based diseases, and summarize evidence on the effects of exercise training on measures of inflammation. The editors are professors at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
