Dissecting the Mediators of Adipose Tissue Dysregulation in Fibrosis: Role of Pro-Fibrotic & Anti-Fibrotic Adipocytokines

Time: 12:00 pm
day: Day Two


• Excess adiposity is a risk factor for fibrosis of multiple organs including lung, liver, heart and kidney
• These effects are mediated through a range of signalling proteins produced by adipocytes, many of which promotes chronic systemic inflammatory and fibrotic responses
• Recent translational insights into pro-fibrotic and anti-fibrotic processes provide novel approaches for treating fibrosing diseases
