A study to determine if acute maternal and fetal hyperglycemia/insulinemia induces leptin production during pregnancy.


BACKGROUND In pregnant primates, the effect of post-prandial hyperglycemic or insulinemic states on leptin production is not known. Our goal was to conduct a controlled study using an established pregnant baboon model ( PAPIO ANUBIS) to determine whether acute glucose changes would have an effect on maternal or fetal plasma leptin levels. METHODS Two… (More)
