About this Research Topic
Metabolic disorders consists of a large group of diseases, including diabetes, osteoporosis, atherosclerosis, gout, obesity, hypertension, fatty liver and so on. Increasing evidence indicates that the immune system plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of metabolic disorders. For example, diabetes is now being re-categorized as an autoimmune disease; gout is characterized by monosodium urate -induced inflammation; and inflammation is considered as an important cause of osteoporosis in rheumatic disease. Despite the level of understanding has progressed considerably in the past decades, the pathogenesis of these disorders remains unclear. Knowledge of the crosstalk between inflammation and metabolic disorders will lead to significant clinical benefits. This Research Topic aims at furthering our understanding of the relationship between immune regulation and metabolic disorders.
We welcome authors to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that focus on the topic of immune regulation and metabolic dysfunction. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Mechanisms regulating inflammation in metabolic disorders
- Clinical immunology in metabolism
- Inflammatory markers in metabolic disorders
- The role of acute phase proteins and cytokines in metabolic regulation
- The role of metabolites in modulating inflammatory processes
Keywords: Metabolism, Diabetes, Immune regulation, Inflammation
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
