How does a high-fat diet influence metabolic inflammatory responses in blood and adipose (fat) tissue?

Loughborough University researchers are looking for participants for a study investigating the impact of a high saturated fat diet on fasted blood and adipose (fat) tissue inflammatory responses.

The team is looking for individuals who fit the following criteria:

  • healthy
  • non-smoking
  • aged 18-40 years
  • have a BMI of 21.0-29.9 kg/m

If you are interested in taking part, you will be invited to complete a one-hour screening and 30-minute familiarisation/pre-test visit and then two one-hour study visits. The two study visits will take place after a three-day weight maintenance diet and after a one-week high fat diet and will include the collection of blood and a single small adipose (fat) tissue sample.

You will be provided with a 10-day supply of food (three day weight maintenance followed by seven day high fat diet) free of charge as part of the study and will be reimbursed for your time.

For more information, please contact Rebecca Dewhurst-Trigg (PhD student) or Dr Oonagh Markey (01509 222737).
