Association between adipose tissue expression and serum levels of leptin and adiponectin in women with polycystic ovary syndrome

S. B. Lecke, Morsch, D. M., and Spritzer, P. M., Association between adipose tissue expression and serum levels of leptin and adiponectin in women with polycystic ovary syndrome, vol. 12, pp. 4292-4296, 2013.

We reviewed emerging evidence linking serum levels and adipose tissue expression of leptin and adiponectin in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Previous data obtained by our group from a sample of overweight/obese PCOS women and a control sample of normal weight controls, both stratified by BMI, were reanalyzed. Circulating levels of leptin and adiponectin were determined by commercially available enzyme-linked immuno­sorbent assays.
