The recent development of a worldwide obesity and type 2 diabetes pandemic has gained wide recognition. In obese subjects, visceral white adipose tissue is enriched in lymphocytes and macrophages, which have been implicated in contributing to systemic low-grade inflammation and vascular complications. Bariatric surgery is emerging as a promising tool in the treatment of morbid obesity and type 2 diabetes by effectively controlling body weight and profoundly improving insulin sensitivity, however, little is known about the effects of surgery-induced weight loss on visceral adipose inflammatory cell infiltration and vascular dysfunction. Interferon-gamma (IFN) is the hallmark cytokine of Th1 cells. We hypothesize that bariatric surgery reduces IFN- induced adipose tissue inflammation and improves vascular function in type 2 diabetic mice. To test this hypothesis, heterozygote control mice (m Lepr db ), and homozygote type 2 diabetic mice (Lepr db ) will be used in the following 7 groups: m Lepr db +sham surgery, m Lepr db + bariatric surgery, Lepr db +sham surgery, Lepr db +5, 10, 20 and 30 days after bariatric surgery. The results suggest that 1) bariatric surgery effectively reduced body weight and abdominal adiposity; 2) surgery inhibited IFN-induced adipose tissue inflammation; 3) surgery improved endothelial function. As the first use of bariatric surgery in type 2 diabetic mice, this study improved our understanding of the role of IFN-induced adipose inflammation in vascular dysfunction in morbid obesity and type 2 diabetes and the mechanisms responsible for the therapeutic effects of bariatric surgery on diabetes-related vascular dysfunction.
