Abstract

This review discusses recent work that has focused on the interaction of leptin with various neuroendocrine pathways in the brain and in the periphery to affect food intake. Additional consideration is directed towards emerging studies with antibodies and receptor antagonists that show leptin has a physiologically important role in the control of food intake.
