OBN BioTuesday: 'An Insight Into Inflammation as a Key Driver of Organ Damage & Cardio-Metabolic Disease'

This edition of our BioTuesday, kindly sponsored by Novo Nordisk, aims to provide an 'Insight into Inflammation as a key driver of Organ Damage & Cardiometabolic Disease'

Chronic inflammation is incredibly complex, with systemic inflammation having the potential to cause a range of serious conditions including cardio-vascular disease, inflammation in the kidney, type 2 diabetes, NASH (non-alcoholic fatty liver) and atherosclerosis (a plaque build-up in arteries).

Our expert line up of academic and industry speakers will be looking for common ground between inflammation, cardio-metabolic diseases and inflammation in cardio-metabolic diseases and share how science is driving innovation is this area of unmet need.

Areas to be discussed include:

  • What is the role of the inflammasomes, the mediators of immune defence, in causing inflammatory disease & organ damage?
  • What are the key characteristics of metaflammation in cardio-metabolic disease?
  • What are the presenting symptoms of a person with metaflammation?
  • What the risk factors and how can they be reduced?
  • An update on mechanisms: Does the inflammation drive the cardio-metabolic disease or is the cardio-metabolic the cause of the inflammation?
  • What are the key pathways/mechanisms to target, control (and reverse) the disease process?
  • What role does the gut microbiome and innate immune system play in metaflammation. Are there lessons to be learnt from other inflammatory diseases.
