Obesity and metabolic diseases are major health issues with a strong impact on the immune system. Since metabolism and immunity are tightly connected, inappropriate immune responses are commonly seen in metabolic disorders such as obesity increases the risk of severe illness from COVID-19 or type 2 diabetes increases the risk of multiple infections. Moreover, a lower immunization following vaccination is also observed in patients with obesity and several metabolic disorders. The mechanisms underlying these immune alterations remain unclear and extensive work is required to better characterize and understand the impact of obesity and metabolic diseases on the immune system.
In this Special Issue, we welcome all types of articles (original research and reviews) that address the relationship between obesity or metabolic diseases and immune processes.
