Session Type: ACR Poster Session C
Session Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM
Background/Purpose: Leptin, a 16 kDa protein, acts on receptors in brain neurons, especially in the hypothalamus. It could affect the hypothalamic-pituitary axis and be involved in the stress response. We analyzed leptin levels in the serum of patients with fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis.
