Metabolic syndrome consists of a constellation of risk factors including primarily abdominal obesity, hyperglycemia, low high-density lipoproteins, hypertriglyceridemia, and hypertension. It encompasses Type 2 diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, hypertension, hepatic steatosis and so on. Recent studies enhanced our understanding of molecular mechanisms of the inflammatory progression in metabolic syndrome. Especially, a number of inflammatory mediators including cytokines, adipokines and eicosanoids induced inflammatory responses that eventually lead to the development of metabolic syndrome. Therefore, measuring the levels of certain inflammatory molecules might provide useful information on the inflammatory state, which may have clinical importance and significance. The selective intervention of some of these molecules might have the therapeutic potential to modulate inflammatory responses, and thereby could alter disease progression. In this review, we would briefly summarize the recent studies on classical and newer inflammatory mediators in the pathogenesis of different human and experimental metabolic syndrome.
