Brief Summary:
This study included two groups of premenopausal healthy obese women. Experimental group underwent a weight loss program involved a low calorie diet plus anti-obesity drugs and moderate physical activity and control group underwent an ad libitum diet. At baseline and after a 10-15% weight loss lymphocyte subgroups were analyzed and compared between two group.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lymphocytes Weight Loss Viral Diseases Immunity Anti-obesity Agents Combination Product: weight loss program Phase 3

Detailed Description:
TCD3 and NKC CD16/56 were decreased significantly. Hence this weight loss program impaired viral immunity
