Circulating endothelial progenitor cells in obese children and adolescents.
Coimbra, Portugal. In J Pediatr (rio J), 27 Sep 2015
The variables analyzed were: age, gender, body mass index, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, lipid profile, leptin, adiponectin, homeostasis model assessment-insulin resistance, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1, E-selectin, asymmetric dimethylarginine and circulating progenitor endothelial cell count.
Circadian Dysfunction Induces Leptin Resistance in Mice.
Houston, United States. In Cell Metab, 07 Aug 2015
Our comprehensive screen of wild-type and three circadian mutant mouse models, with or without chronic jet lag, shows that distinct genetic and physiologic interventions differentially disrupt overall energy homeostasis and Leptin signaling.
Amylin: Pharmacology, Physiology, and Clinical Potential.
Zürich, Switzerland. In Pharmacol Rev, Jul 2015
Amylin acts principally in the circumventricular organs of the central nervous system and functionally interacts with other metabolically active hormones such as cholecystokinin, leptin, and estradiol.
[Gestational diabetes in the light of current literature].

In the development of gestational diabetes mellitus important role apart from maternal and fetal hyperinsulinemia play: antagonistic to insulin placental hormones, TNFα, placental pro-inflammatory cytokines, resistin, leptin ghrelin.

F2 male offspring (n=4-7) derived from HFD maternal grandfathers were 7·7% heavier (p=0·029), exhibited a 31% increase in visceral adiposity (p=0·032), a 97% increase in plasma leptin (p=0·027), a trend for lower testosterone (p=0·057), and an increase in the luteinising hormone to testosterone ratio (p=0·017).
