    Background and aims: Fatigue is a frequent and disabling symptom reported by patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC). Its mechanism is poorly understood. Recent attention has focused on the role of leptin and energy expenditure in CHC. Our aims were to analyse fatigue in CHC and to determine its...

    Obesity is associated with chronic low-grade systemic inflammation and high levels of the adipokine leptin. Predominantly produced by adipose tissue, circulating leptin induces satiety by acting on the hypothalamus. Emerging data are establishing new roles for leptin in the cardiovascular and...

    OBJECTIVE: Leptin is a peptide hormone that mainly regulates food intake and energy expenditure of human body. A close correlation between serum leptin levels and the percentage of body fat stores is well known. Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a common disorder which causes serum liver...

    Obesity is now recognised as one of the most important risk factors for heart disease. Obese individuals have high circulating levels of leptin, a hormone secreted by adipose tissue and involved in energy homeostasis. Growing evidence suggests that leptin may contribute to the development of...
