Effect of hyperleptinaemia on chronic ethanol-induced hepatotoxicity in mice.

Ethanol metabolism is accompanied by generation of free radicals, which stimulate lipid peroxidation. Previous studies have proposed a possible link between leptin and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease; however, the effect of leptin on ethanol-induced liver diseases remains unclear. The aim of the present study was to explore the effect of leptin on ethanol… CONTINUE READING
