International experts are brought together in this book to give basic as well as clinical data on obesity and cachexia, and an integrated picture of the regulation of intermediary metabolism in both situations. The data provide evidence that tissue catabolism and anabolism are regulated by similar mechanisms, which again are the target of different hormonal and metabolic factors. This joint discussion of the similarities evident in both areas will greatly benefit future understanding and research in obesity and cachexia.
