Plasma Levels of Leptin and Adiponectin in Fragile X Syndrome
Adipokines may be involved in the psychiatric features observed in FXS patients, and the role of adiponectin and leptin in the pathophysiology of FXS is hypothesized.
The assessment of serum omentin levels of children with autism spectrum disorder and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
The present results suggest that plasma omentin levels are increased in non-obese and drug-free patients with ASD when compared with in ADHD and healthy children.
The role of adiponectin receptors in the regulation of synaptic transmission in the hippocampus
Surprisingly, increasing concentration of Adiporon correlated with lower CA1–LTP levels and paired‐pulse ratio, whereas basal transmission was always preserved, showing that the adiponectin system, beyond its involvement in metabolic diseases, plays also a critical role in synaptic activity thereby representing a putative target for the treatment of synaptic pathologies.
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder in adults: A systematic review and meta-analysis of genetic, pharmacogenetic and biochemical studies
There were not enough genetic, pharmacogenetic and biochemical studies of ADHD in adults and that more investigations are needed, which confirmed a significant role of BAIAP2 and DHA in the etiology of ADHD exclusively in adults.

It is suggested that cord blood adipokines, particularly, leptin level, may be a predictor of hyperactivity/inattention problems at preschool age.

Through a convergent functional genomics, this review contributes to clarification of which genetic/biological mechanisms differ with age, and some genes/proteins could be potential useful biomarkers to discriminate cADHD from aADHD.
Cadherin-13, a risk gene for ADHD and comorbid disorders, impacts GABAergic function in hippocampus and cognition
Results indicate that CDH13 is a negative regulator of inhibitory synapses in the hippocampus, and provide insights into howCDH13 dysfunction may contribute to the excitatory/inhibitory imbalance observed in neurodevelopmental disorders, such as ADHD and autism.
The Obesity–Impulsivity Axis: Potential Metabolic Interventions in Chronic Psychiatric Patients
A look beyond psychopharmacological interventions and discusses dietary and physical therapy approaches for addressing obesity and metabolic dysfunction in a preventive manner to reduce the excessive impulsivity, decreasing the risk for aggression.
Prostate Diseases and the Metabolic Syndrome
This investigation showed that LUTS and UI were neither associated with any major component of the MetS, nor associated with serum levels of vitamin D, however, serum Levels of serotonin were negatively associated with LUTs and UI, while fasting glucose and adiponectin were positively associated withLUTS.


Serum high-molecular-weight adiponectin as a marker for the evaluation and care of subjects with metabolic syndrome and related disorders.
It is suggested that HMW adiponectin is a useful marker for the evaluation and care of subjects with metabolic syndrome and related disorders.
Decreased Levels of Circulating Adiponectin in Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer’s Disease
It is concluded that lower levels of adiponectin were associated with cognitive dysfunction, though it did not predict additional cognitive decline and conversion to dementia in this cohort of elderly subjects.
