Western diet and lifestyle contribute to the pandemic development of obesity and non-infectious degenerative diseases known as civilization diseases. Obesity is characterized by hyperglycemia, dyslipidemia, hyperinsulinemia, and a massive increase of adipose tissue associated with enhanced secretion of adipokines, chemokines, and cytokines. It is supposed that this altered composition of the microenvironment modifies immune cell homeostasis and function, promoting chronic inflammatory diseases and disturbed tissue repair. However, the precise impact of these factors on the amplification, chronification of inflammation and delayed wound repair in obesity is still poorly understood. Adipokines have been suggested to link obesity, adipose tissue accumulation and severity of inflammation. New emerging data suggest that metabolic and nutritional components play a pivotal role in the amplification of inflammation and delayed wound repair in obesity Indeed, obesity is linked to the risk and enhanced severity of various chronic inflammatory disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease, arteriosclerosis psoriasis, type II diabetes, or cardiovascular diseases as well as delayed wound healing. The dramatic increase of obesity in recent decades underlines the challenge and the need to understand the association of obesity and inflammation and tissue repair in order to develop specific treatment strategies. Therefore, we invite you to submit proposals for manuscripts that bring new insights into the role of metabolic factors and nutritional components on skin inflammation and tissue repair.
