    Background: Leptin is a protein hormone produced by fat cells of mammals. It acts within the hypothalamus via a specific receptor to reduce appetite and increase energy expenditure. Plasma leptin levels correlate closely with total body fat mass operating via a central feedback mechanism. In...

    Background and Aim. Leptin has two forms in the circulation: free and bound forms. The soluble leptin receptor (sOB-R) circulates in the blood and can bind to leptin. The aim of this study is to assess the concentrations of the leptin and the sOB-R in PCOS and its relation to adiposity, insulin...
