We investigated leptin concentration in umbilical cord blood of 51 newborns (mean 5.71 +/- 3.28 ng/ml) and in maternal blood (mean 22.11 +/- 10.95 ng/ml). Leptin concentration in 20 preterm infants (mean 4.73 +/- 2.15 ng/ml) was significantly lower (p < 0.05) than in full-term newborns (mean 6.34 +/- 2.08 ng/ml) and tended to increase according to… CONTINUE READING
