Abstract

Common community-acquired infections, such as cytomegalovirus (CMV), may contribute to the development of obesity and metabolic dysfunction. The authors demonstrate a weak association between CMV and metabolic dysfunction in non-obese adults. This relationship appears to be masked in the obese, possibly by the effects of excess adiposity on metabolism.
