Obesity presents an enormous burden on health and its negative side effects extend across multiple organ systems and diseases. It is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke, certain cancers, osteoarthritis, gastrointestinal, reproductive disorders and pulmonary diseases. Additionally, obesity triggers a low grade inflammatory response which involves many components of a classical inflammatory response to pathogens. At MLM Medical Labs, in order to understand and assess these inflammatory components, we offer diet-induced obesity (DIO) and inflammatory disease models that can be customized to fit your project’s goals.
