Leptin is a naturally occurring hormone that is known for its hunger-blocking effect on the hypothalamus which is a region in the brain.
A previous study, confined to the role of leptin in sex maturation and reproduction in fish, has reported that human leptin protein, acting at the level of the pituitary, directly stimulated follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) release in female rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) (Weil et al.

As Table 1 shows, swimming and surgical stresses cause significant increase of leptin concentrations (P < 0.
JD5037 scientist Dr George Kunos, of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism in the US, said: "By sensitising the body to naturally occurring leptin, the new drug could not only promote weight loss, but also help to maintain it.
Among them, many investigations have examined the effects of exercise on plasma leptin and ghrelin levels.
Yet, immunohistochemistry in an independent group of 154 patients showed that strong leptin staining was also associated with better survival (P = .
In the current study, the researchers found that infusing leptin into the lateral ventricle of an animals' brain reversed the lethal consequences of type 1 diabetes.
In order to understand whether alone and together exercise and caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) has an effect on obesity and weight control, we investigated the leptin, resistin, lipid parameters (triglyceride [TG] and total cholesterol levels [TC], HDL-C, LDL-C), and body weights in rat model.
