Aims/hypothesis Obesity is a heterogeneous condition comprising both individuals who remain metabolically healthy (MHO) and those who develop metabolic disorders (metabolically unhealthy, MUO). Adipose tissue is also heterogeneous in that its visceral component is more frequently associated with metabolic dysfunction than its subcutaneous component. The development of metabolic disorders is partly mediated by the NLR family pyrin domain containing-3 (NLRP3) inflammasome, which increases the secretion of inflammatory cytokines via activation of caspase-1. We compared the immunological profile and NLRP3 activity in adipose tissue between MUO and MHO individuals. Methods MHO and MUO phenotypes were defined, respectively, as the absence and the presence of the metabolic syndrome. Cellular composition and intrinsic inflammasome activity were investigated by flow cytometry, quantitative RTPCR and tissue culture studies in subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissue from 23 MUO, 21 MHO and nine lean individuals. Results We found significant differences between the three study groups, including an increased secretion of IL-1β, increased expression of IL1B and NLRP3, increased number of adipose tissue macrophages and decreased number of regulatory T cells in the visceral adipose tissue of MUO patients compared with MHO and lean participants. In macrophages derived from visceral adipose tissue, both caspase-1 activity and IL-1β levels were higher in MUO patients than in MHO patients. Furthermore, caspase-1 activity was higher in CD11c+CD206+ adipose tissue macrophages than in CD11c−CD206+ cells. Conclusions/interpretation The MUO phenotype seems to be associated with an increased activation of the NLPR3 inflammasome in macrophages infiltrating visceral adipose tissue, and a less favourable inflammatory profile compared with the MHO phenotype.

The prevalence of obesity increases rapidly in developed and developing countries. Obesity results from a cumulative positive energy balance and is favoured by both genetic and environmental factors. Preventing obesity requires a major investment in nutritional and lifestyle education, particularly in children and adolescents.--The pharmacological approach to obesity includes drugs that reduce food intake (noradrenergic and serotoninergic agents), drugs that increase energy expenditure and compounds that affect nutrient partitioning. In all instances, the benefit-to-risk ratio needs to be carefully assessed. In some patients (severe obesity or obesity accompanied by serious high-risk comorbid conditions), gastric surgery (gastric restriction or gastric bypass) should be considered. In our own experience, it is safe and effective. [less ▲]

Most morphological operators use a unique structuring element, possibly at different scales, to describe an object. In addition, morphological algorithms are often restricted to 1D structuring elements, combinations of 1D elements, or isotropic structuring elements (like circles), because of the lack of methods directly applicable to 2D structuring elements. While these descriptors have proved useful in the past, we propose an alternative that uses the list of maximal rectangles contained in a set X. In particular, we focus on an opening that preserves large rectangles contained in a set X and on its companion 2D algorithm that builds a list of all the maximal rectangles that fit inside an arbitrary set X. This list is the base of new descriptors that have been used successfully for machine learning tasks. [less ▲]
