BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to compare serum and seminal level of leptin in the context of infertility in men according to BMI. We also investigated the possible correlation of circulating level of leptin with fertility indices. METHODS This case-control study was conducted on 193 men who consecutively attended a referral outpatient infertility clinic of Shariati Hospital. The leptin level in serum and seminal plasma were quantified by enzymelinked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in… Expand
Association between leptin, obesity, hormonal interplay and male infertility
TLDR
Male infertility is a major health problem worldwide and male obesity was found to be associated with infertility with the decrease in levels of sex hormones. Expand
Exogenous leptin affects sperm parameters and impairs blood testis barrier integrity in adult male mice
TLDR
Leptin reduced tight junction-associated proteins in Sertoli cells, indicating that leptin has a direct role in impairing blood testis barrier integrity. Expand
