Intracerebroventricular leptin administration reduces food intake in pregnant and lactating mice.


Leptin acts within the hypothalamus to diminish food intake. During pregnancy and lactation, both circulating leptin concentrations and food intake are elevated, suggesting an ineffectiveness of leptin to reduce food intake in these mice. Thus, this study tested the ability of intracerebroventricular (ICV) leptin administration to alter food intake during… (More)
