Critically Discuss the Revival of Leptin for Obesity Therapy

This paper will critically discuss the plausible revival of leptin for obesity therapy with reference to research findings on various influencing factors contributing to the level of expression and secretion of leptin.

Leptin in normal physiology and leptin resistance

The current knowledge about leptin action, leptin signaling and leptin resistance is reviewed, hoping to provide new ideas for the battle against obesity.

Hypothalamic endoplasmic reticulum stress as a key mediator of obesity‐induced leptin resistance

The relationship between and mechanism underlying hypothalamic endoplasmic reticulum stress and obesity‐associated leptin resistance and energy imbalance are highlighted and new insight is provided regarding strategies for the treatment of obesity.

The integrative role of leptin, oestrogen and the insulin family in obesity-associated breast cancer: potential effects of exercise

The purpose of this narrative review was to explore the role of leptin in breast cancer development and progression, identify key interactions with oestrogen and the insulin family, and distinguish the potential effects of exercise on these interactions.

Modulation of leptin resistance by food compounds.

This review summarizes the existing literature on potentially valuable nutrients and food components to reverse leptin resistance and suggests several food compounds, such as teasaponins, resveratrol, celastrol, caffeine, and taurine among others, are able to restore the leptin signaling in neurons by overexpressing anorexigenic peptides and/or repressing orexigenics peptides, thus decreasing food intake.

Biochemical Mechanisms Involved in the Regulation of Appetite and Weight - Review

The biochemical mechanisms involved in the regulation of appetite and body weight are discussed, and a suite of well characterized and intensely investigated enzymes, anorexigenic and orexigenic gut hormones, and their appetite-regulating capabilities are explored.

Immunometabolism in Obesity

The reader will be able to understand the relationship between the immune system and metabolism, in normal and obesity states; also, will identify the chronic state of low-grade inflammation as the main etiological factor of obesity co-morbidities, such as insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus, osteoarthritis and susceptibility to some kinds of cancer.

Leptin signaling and cancer chemoresistance: Perspectives

The role of leptin and its significance in possibly driving these proposed chemoresistance mechanisms are focused on, and its effects on cancer cell survival signals and expansion of the cancer stem cell sub-populations are examined.

Journal of Diabetes and Obesity

Investigation of the relationship between the levels of leptin, adiponectin, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) and lymphocytes count in diabetic and obese diabetic participants and its significance in the etiology of diabetes and obesity in Sohag Governorate showed in obesity with or without type 2 diabetes serum levels ofptin and TNF- α were increased, however, adip onectin level was decreased.

Ghrelin and Leptin in Obese Postmenopausal Patients

From these results, the increase in leptin levels together with the decrease of ghrelin levels probably fails to suppress appetite in obese postmenopausal women and leptin concentration could be considered a good marker of the amount of body fat in obese conditions and could be used as a line of treatment.



Obesity-Hypertension: Emerging Concepts in Pathophysiology and Treatment

Reduction of circulating leptin may confer cardiovascular and renal protective effects in patients with obesity-hypertension, and should be considered a potential pressure and volume-regulating factor in normal situations.

Obesity and leptin resistance: distinguishing cause from effect

Leptin resistance: a prediposing factor for diet-induced obesity.

Emerging evidence suggests that leptin resistance predisposes the animal to exacerbated diet-induced obesity (DIO), and once leptin resistance takes hold, it aggravates DIO, and the leptin resistance and obesity compound one another, promoting a vicious cycle of escalating weight gain.

The role of SOCS-3 protein in leptin resistance and obesity.

One of the mechanisms considered to have a role in leptin resistance is disruption in signal transduction process through Janus-activating kinase2-signal transducer and activation of transcription 3 pathway on leptin receptors by suppressor of cytokine signaling-3 (SOCS-3).

Sweet Preference, Obesity and Genetic Polymorphism of Leptin and the Leptin Receptor

New evidence is provided that leptin and leptin receptor gene polymorphisms are associated with sweet preference and obesity and the impairment of sweet preference regulated by leptin may cause the obesity.

The interconnections between obesity, thyroid function, and autoimmunity: the multifold role of leptin.

The development of resistance to the weight-lowering effects of leptin in obesity might well be initiated by activation of inflammatory signaling, which substantially contributes to the derangement of immune response and propagation of autoimmunity in susceptible individuals.

Progress in the Study of Leptin and Insulin Resistance

Leptin resistance and insulin resistance may be the reciprocal causations in the production mechanism and interact, both to participate in the development of various diseases.

[An approach toward CNS dysfunction associated with metabolic syndrome; implication of leptin, which is a key molecule of obesity, in depression associated with obesity].

It is demonstrated that DIO mice showed severe depressive behavior without response to the antidepressant effect of leptin, which is, in part, due to the impairment of leptin action in the hippocampus, which might have common pathological bases vulnerable to these disorders.
