Leptin: A novel target for reducing the risk of heart disease in obesity

Sherma Zibadi, Ronald R Watson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

These studies lead us to the conclusion that leptin initiates or attenuates the adverse heart remodeling associated with obesity and other hyperleptinemic conditions, which may in turn contribute to the clinical syndrome of heart failure. This will likely provide the basis for future development of leptin-moduiator therapeutics to prevent or lessen adverse cardiac remodeling and dysfunction in obese populations.
