Leptin receptor expression during the progression of endometrial carcinoma is correlated with estrogen and progesterone receptors

Abstract

INTRODUCTION The hormone leptin, which is produced in the adipose tissue, may influence tumorigenesis directly via its receptor (Ob-R). Thus, a role for Ob-R in endometrial carcinogenesis has been proposed. However, most studies neither included samples of the entire histological progression of endometrial carcinoma nor examined Ob-R jointly with the… (More)
