This research explores the adverse effect of obesity on the omega-3 anti-inflammatory potential. "The study shows that genetic variation can influence inflammation and omega-3 response, and that the LGI-Ob score could be a useful tool to classify subjects at inflammatory risk and more prone to suffer metabolic syndrome and associated metabolic disturbances."
