Sample text

Dr. Lucas: In the neonatal period in humans, there are quite a number of quite defined unmarked hormonal surges, testosterone, gut hormones and so forth. Are you saying that there isn’t a leptin surge or that hasn’t been looked at? Dr. Bouret: Several papers have looked at leptin levels and reported elevated levels of leptin during both pre- and postnatal life in humans. However, there was no clear indication of distinct leptin surge, as it has been reported in rodents. It does not mean that there is no leptin surge in humans, it just means that it has not been detected yet.

Cell Metab 2008;7:179–185. 25 Delahaye F, Breton C, Risold P-Y, et al: Maternal perinatal undernutrition drastically reduces postnatal leptin surge and affects the development of arcuate nucleus proopiomelanocortin neurons in neonatal male rat pups. Endocrinology 2008;149:470–475. 26 Plagemann A, Waas T, Harder T, Rittel F, Ziska T, Rohde W: Hypothalamic neuropeptide Y levels in weaning offspring of low-protein malnourished mother rats. Neuropeptides 2000;34:1– 6. 27 Varma A, He J, Weissfeld L, Devaskar SU: Postnatal intracerebroventricular exposure to neuropeptide Y causes weight loss in female adult rats.

In rodents, it appears that the period of maximal 36 Hormones, Nutrition, and Hypothalamic Development sensitivity for leptin starts during the embryonic life and ends around the first 2–3 weeks of life. In humans, it is believed that brain development is finished at birth, so one may think that the critical period for leptin’s actions in humans may be restricted to late gestation. In fact, Dr. Lucas mentioned this morning that the environment during late gestation is more critical for brain development than the early postnatal life.
