Abstract: Previous studies have shown that mice lacking interleukin-6 (IL-6), an important cytokine in the immune system, develop obesity, and that central, but not peripheral, administration of IL-6 induces energy expenditure. These findings suggest that IL-6 suppresses fat mass through the central nervous system. The mechanism behind this, however, is not understood. The aim of this thesis was to investigate possible neurobiological mechanisms, by which IL-6, during health, could exert its fat suppres... more
