UNLABELLED This study examines the effect of long-term ICV administration of leptin in ewes. We found that central application significantly decreased osteoblast activity as measured by serum analysis as well as by histomorphometry, resulting in decreased trabecular bone volume. These data provide additional evidence that bone formation and therefore bone remodeling is at least in part centrally controlled. INTRODUCTION Genetic studies in mice have identified leptin as a potent inhibitor of… CONTINUE READING
