This study will test the hypothesis that leptin contributes to the regulation of the dynamics of human endocrine function.
We will assess the endocrine and immune effects of leptin replacement in leptin-deficient children, from a consanguineous Turkish family. We hypothesize that leptin replacement will have significant effects on immune and endocrine function.
This is a study investigating the hormones and substances important to the stress response. The hormone that is most directly responsible for stress response is called corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH). CRH is produced in the hypothalamus of the brain and causes the pituitary gland to produce another hormone called ACTH. The hormone ACTH then acts on the adrenal glands causing them to produce the hormone cortisol. Unfortunately, CRH levels are unable to be measured in si...
This is a pilot and feasibility study to examine a novel intervention using leptin in weight-reduced individuals who have undergone bariatric surgery but still remain obese. Leptin, a peptide hormone secreted from adipose tissue, is a regulator of food intake and energy expenditure. Administration of leptin resulted in profound weight reduction in the few reported cases of obese individuals with genetic leptin deficiency. However, most obese people have increased leptin levels....
The purpose of this trial was to determine if injections of leptin would improve vascular function in normal-weight, healthy volunteers.
The purpose of this study will be to determine whether giving leptin (r-metHuLeptin) to a person when he or she is fasting will reverse changes in metabolism, and hormone levels, and immune function associated with fasting, which decreases leptin levels.
Our previous studies have demonstrated that there is substantial metabolic opposition to the maintenance of an altered body weight. Leptin is a protein secreted by fat cells and the circulating concentrations of leptin are directly proportional to fat mass. Leptin-deficiency is associated with severe obesity in rodents and in humans and the obesity is relieved by leptin administration. These studies examine the hypothesis that some of this metabolic opposition cto the maintena...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether administration of an investigational medication called leptin (r-metHuLeptin) in replacement doses can improve bone health, reproductive function, hormone levels, immune function, and overall sense of well-being in women with hypothalamic (exercise-induced) amenorrhea (HA) who are being treated with oral contraceptive pills (OCPs), compared to placebo. Women with hypothalamic amenorrhea have low leptin levels. This study is ba...
The purpose of this study is to identify how certain parts of the brain that help control body weight respond to an infusion of hormones called leptin and amylin.
This registry aims to collect informations about patients with endocrine tumors (Thyroid, Parathyroid, Adrenal, Endocrine Pancreas, Endocrine Digestive Tube) who undergo endocrine surgical procedures. This registry is part of the Eurocrine Project.
The purpose of this study will be to determine the correct dose of leptin, a natural hormone secreted by the fat cells, to give to people when they are fasting and also to determine whether giving leptin to a person when he or she is fasting will reverse the changes in hormone levels that occur with fasting.
After vaginal delivery, all of the participants will evaluate by using Edinburg depression scale and venous blood sample will obtain. Postpartum depression will consider the result of scale 13 and above according to Turkhish translate. Then leptin, adiponectin and serotonin level will compare between depressed and nondepressed women.
Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (or NASH) is known to be caused by deposition of fat in the liver and development of scarring. This condition occurs more frequently in overweight and obese persons. It is often associated with resistance to the actions of insulin hormone. Fat cells secrete a hormone called leptin. Recently, we have learned that obese or overweight persons make too much leptin, which may contribute to insulin resistance. Paradoxically, patients who do not have any f...
Leptin is a hormone that acts in the body as a chemical messenger. It is produced in fat cells and is believed to regulate body weight in humans. Leptin decreases appetite and influences the energy balance of the body. This study will attempt to measure levels of leptin production in the fat pad of the body by using a process called microperfusion. Microperfusion works by inserting 2 to 3 probes (thin tubes) into the fat pad around the belly button. These probes can measu...
Leptin is a hormone that plays a central role in food intake and energy balance. It is secreted by fat cells, released into the circulation and transported into the central nervous system (brain), where it regulates energy balance and food intake. The overall effects of leptin appear to reduce food intake when the body is calorically satisfied, and to alter metabolic rate A decrease in the amount of body fat, which occurs after fasting, reduces the level of leptin, thereby stim...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether patients with HIV lipodystrophy (fat wasting) benefit from taking the combination of two drugs, one insulin sensitizer (either metformin or pioglitazone, both diabetes drugs) and leptin (a natural hormone produced by your fat cells). Our hope is that they will improve sugar and fat metabolism and positively affect the body fat changes you have noticed while taking HAART.
This study is assessing the effect of setmelanotide (RM-493) on weight and other factors in patients with Leptin Receptor (LEPR) deficiency obesity due to rare bi-allelic loss-of-function LEPR genetic mutation.
Leptin, a circulating hormone expressed abundantly in adipose tissue, has been reported to be a satiety factor. In addition, it has been shown to increase during pregnancy in maternal blood, parallel to increase in body fat mass, to correlate with fetal body weight gain and to fall down to basal levels after delivery. Little is known about leptin levels in pregnant women with preexisting or gestational diabetes and their relationship with fetal and postnatal growth and perinat...
New markers of viral activity are now under investigation. Aim of the study is to investigate the efficacy of new antiretroviral drugs by monitoring HIV-DNA dynamics in HIV-positive population. In HIV/HCV coinfected population, the study of HIV reservoir dynamics and the analysis of the prevalence of HCV resistance-associated mutations will help clinicians to improve the management of coinfected patients.
This study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, and effect on body weight of leptin, injected subcutaneously, in combination with pramlintide, injected subcutaneously.
The study entitled " Asprosin Dynamics relating to serum Glucose levels under controlled alterations" investigates the dynamics of Asprosin in relation to glucose levels under controlled conditions in diabetic patients.
The investigators here propose to perform a collaborative clinical research effort including a randomized controlled trial investigating the mechanisms of weight maintenance and their relation to a lifestyle intervention in children, adolescents and adults. The detailed investigation and analysis of the variability and dynamics of the endocrine circuits responding to a negative energy balance and weight loss will be accompanied and enhanced by specific clinical projects targeti...
This trial studies the effects on quality of life and on time to second progression of the sequence endocrine therapy-capecitabine versus the sequence capecitabine-endocrine treatment. It is anticipated that the time on study (which is the time between randomization and the discontinuation of the second treatment in the sequence) will be similar for both arms of the study. The quality of life during this period, however, could be better in the patient group receiving the most e...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate radiotherapy followed by endocrine therapy in comparison with endocrine therapy alone for PSA failure after radical prostatectomy.
Obesity is a chronic inflammatory disorder in which leptin, adiponectin and C reactive protein (CRP) play an important role. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between markers of adiposity like leptin, adiponectin and high sensitive C reactive protein (hsCRP) in obese children, and to determine whether these adipokines are significant markers in defining metabolic syndrome in pediatric population
