Final Report - TOBI (Targeting OBesity-driven Inflammation)

Project ID: 201608
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH

Abstract

The report includes the TOBI research project, which addresses pathophysiological mechanisms related to excess fat which promote secondary health problems through adipokine-mediated crosstalk and an inflammatory drift.

The report starts off with a description of the topic and its objectives in detail. These are followed by the project results described according to the work packages, followed by the project's potential impact on health care issues, on cross-thematic level and on competiveness.

TOBI was highly successfully and has met essentially all objectives within schedule and the tools established have fostered obesity research in Europe. If the drug target identified will turn out to be valuable for clinical application, TOBI could bring enormous benefit to obese patients, contribute to sustainable health systems in Europe and support the competitiveness of the European health industry.
