Role of Leptin in Immune Dysfunction in WNIN Obese Rats

Immune dysfunction leading to increased susceptibility to infectious diseases is often seen in both obese animal and human subjects [1]. However, no specific factor/mechanism has been attributed to this, though a correlation between reduction in total body fat and impaired immunity was established in a wide range of species including humans, suggesting the role for adipose tissue in altered immune function [2,3].
