Biomarkers and Modulation by Dietary Strategies
ILSI Europe Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes Task Force
Hotel Macia Real De La Alhambra
Mirador del Genil, 2
18008 Granada, Spain
Inflammation is an essential component of the immune response. However, chronic lowgrade inflammation is being increasingly recognised as a pathological feature of numerous common chronic diseases. For example, adipose tissue inflammation is a key determinant of risk and progression of type-2 diabetes and the metabolic syndrome.
Numerous dietary components (macronutrients, micronutrients and non-nutrient plant bio-actives) modulate inflammatory status. The generic aim of the workshop is to provide a comprehensive overview of what is known and unknown regarding the contribution of inflammation to health and disease, how inflammation may be assessed and modified by diet, and the use of inflammation as the basis for health claims.
The speakers will provide clear takehome messages and the workshop will provide a platform to discuss with key stakeholders the challenges of low-grade inflammation and its importance as a pathological feature of numerous common chronic diseases.
A peer-reviewed publication covering the discussions will be produced soon after the workshop.
