Latest set of publications are out now in Biochemical Pharmacology that are authored by several dozen experts in metabolic health, obesity, and chemical obesogens. Articles discuss state of the evidence for molecular mechanisms promoting obesity (I), causal evidence for obesogens (II), and assays available and emerging to measure obesogens (III).
Obesity I: Overview and molecular and biochemical mechanisms.
Obesity II: Establishing causal links between chemical exposures and obesity.
Obesity III: Obesogen assays: Limitations, strengths, and new directions.
