Abstract

Zhao et al. show that in the context of obesity, partial leptin reduction restores hypothalamic leptin sensitivity and leads to reduced food intake, increased energy expenditure, and improved insulin sensitivity. Thus, strategies aimed at partially reducing circulating leptin may represent a promising approach for the treatment of obesity and diabetes.
