Genistein suppresses leptin‐induced proliferation and migration of vascular smooth muscle cells and neointima formation

Abstract

Obesity is a strong risk factor for the development of cardiovascular diseases and is associated with a marked increase in circulating leptin concentration. Leptin is a peptide hormone mainly produced by adipose tissue and is regulated by energy level, hormones and various inflammatory mediators. Genistein is an isoflavone that exhibits diverse health… (More)
