Titel:
Leptin promotes vascular remodeling and neointimal growth in mice. 
Abstract:
OBJECTIVE: Human obesity is associated with elevated leptin levels and a high risk of death from cardiovascular disease. In the present study, we investigated the effects of leptin on vascular wound healing and arterial lesion growth in mice. METHODS AND RESULTS: Wild-type mice placed on an atherogenic, high-fat diet had elevated (9-fold) leptin levels compared with their counterparts maintained on normal chow, and the former demonstrated significantly enhanced neointimal thickening after caroti...    »
