    J Immunol 167:5913-20. 2001
    ..In conclusion, IL-18BP can be engineered and produced in recombinant form to generate an IL-18 inhibitor, IL-18BP-Fc, endowed with remarkable in vitro and in vivo properties of binding and neutralizing IL-18...

    R Faggioni
    Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, California, 94121, USA
    FASEB J 15:2565-71. 2001
    ..Leptin regulates T cells responses, polarizing Th cells toward a Th1 phenotype. Low leptin levels occurring during starvation mediate the neuroendocrine and immune dysfunction of starvation...

    Metabolism Section, Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, University of California, San Francisco, California 94121, USA
    Am J Physiol 276:R136-42. 1999
    ..These results suggest that leptin participates in the host response to inflammation by modulating the host immune and cytokine responses after LPS...

    Metabolism Section, Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94121, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 97:2367-72. 2000
    ..In addition, both TNF-alpha and IL-18 appear to be essential mediators of T cell-mediated liver injury...

    R A Memon
    Department of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
    Biochim Biophys Acta 1484:41-50. 2000
    ..Taken together, these results suggest that the upregulation of UCP2 mRNA levels in the liver and WAT of ob/ob mice is not due to the lack of leptin, hyperphagia, increased tissue lipid content, or over-expression of TNF-alpha...
  6. ncbi request reprint LPS-induced anorexia in leptin-deficient (ob/ob) and leptin receptor-deficient (db/db) mice
    R Faggioni
    Department of Medicine, University of California, USA
    Am J Physiol 273:R181-6. 1997
    ..No differences between db/db and ob/ob mice and their respective littermate were observed in circulating tumor necrosis factor levels after LPS. These data suggest that leptin per se is not essential for LPS-induced anorexia...
