    Division of Endocrinology, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15261, USA
    Endocrinology 142:3546-53. 2001
    ..This study is the first evidence that leptin therapy has a significant effect in preventing ovariectomy-induced bone loss, and this effect may at least in part be mediated by the osteoprotegerin/RANK ligand pathway...

    B Burguera
    Division of Endocrinology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, PA 15260, USA
    Physiol Behav 74:717-20. 2001
    ..This information is crucial in order to better understand the role that leptin may play in the pathophysiology of diseases, such as obesity, delayed puberty, or growth defects...

    M E Couce
    Division of Neuropathology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, PA 15260, USA
    Pituitary 4:101-10. 2001
    ..A better understanding of how leptin reaches the brain and how it modulates the release of hypothalamic neuropeptides will be important in understanding the role that leptin plays in the pathophysiology of obesity...

    M E Couce
    Division of Neuropathology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, USA
    J Endocrinol Invest 29:599-605. 2006
    ..This data questions the significance of the role of peripheral ghrelin in the regulation of appetite in humans and suggests an important role for central ghrelin in the pathogenesis of obesity in humans...
