Targeting systemic inflammation to improve endothelial function in obesity
Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:19th Jul 2010
Does reducing inflammation in obese volunteers, using pentoxifylline, lead to an improvement in the health of blood vessels? We will measure the health of blood vessels by taking blood samples and carrying out an ultrasound scan of the blood vessel in the arm before and after treatment. This will address whether inflammation causes 'unhealthy' blood vessels in people with obesity.
