Core Tip The close association of adipose tissue fibro-sis and metabolic complications in obesity has been corroborated in rodent and human studies. Adipo-se tis-sue hypoxia initiates fibrosis which is further aggravated by inflammation. In adipose tissue preadi-pocytes, adipocytes and resident macrophages produce collagen showing that the fibrotic process differs from the extensively studied scar formation in the liver. Strategies to resolve fibrosis in fat tissues thereby promoting healthy adipose tissue growth are suggested to improve metabolic situation in obese patients.
