According to recent research from Denmark, "Human adipose tissue (AT) cultures, isolated adipocytes, and stromal-vascular cells were used to investigate the relationship among AT-resident macrophages, MCP-1, and adiposity and the regulation of MCP-1. MCP-1 production is higher in stromal-vascular cells vs adipocytes (p<0.01) and correlates with macrophage markers in both AT compartments (p<0.05). MCP-1 release is higher in obese subjects (p<0.05) and in VAT (p<0.01), but after adjusting for AT-resident macrophages, the differences disappear."
