Executive Summary

Omentec was formed around omentin, a protein selectively expressed in visceral (central) adipose tissue, where fat is stored. Visceral obesity, as opposed to subcutaneous (peripheral) fat accumulation, is associated with a higher risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. That omentin is found mostly in visceral adipose tissue suggests it may be an important signaling factor in fat metabolism, insulin sensitivity, and inflammation, with therapeutic and diagnostic applications.
