Bart C. De Jonghe, PhD, assistant professor, School of Nursing, University of Pennsylvania, discusses inflammation, obesity and cancer.

De Jonghe says when a cancer patient is obese and undergoing treatment, it can create a “perfect inflammatory storm.” Current research is looking to see which pathways are affected by obesity and cancer and if any of the inflammatory responses overlap.
