Causes and consequences of the complex changes in lipids occurring in the metabolic syndrome are only partly understood. Several interconnected processes are deteriorating, which implies that multi-target approaches might be more successful than strategies based on a limited number of surrogate markers. Preparations from Chinese Medicine (CM) systems have been handed down with documented clinical features similar as metabolic syndrome, which might help developing new intervention for metabolic syndrome.
The Netherlands Metabolomics Centre focusses on the development of metabolomics based technologies and instrumentation to address the current and future challenges in biology, biotechnology and biomedical research in order to improve personalised health and quality of life.
