How does the inflammatory profile differ between lean and obese people?

09 September 2019

We are looking for lean and obese participants to investigate how the inflammatory profile of stomach fat tissue differs between lean and obese individuals.

The study will involve 3 brief visits to Loughborough University Campus (total time commitment 3 hours).

This will include a screening visit (1 hour), a pre-test visit (30 min) and an experimental visit (1.5 hours). During the experimental visit we will collect a fasted blood sample and a small stomach fat tissue sample via biopsy.


Ethical approval

This study has been reviewed according to procedures specified by the University Research Ethics (Human Participants) Sub-Committee and has been given a favourable opinion for conduct (R19-P144).
