"The association of mRNA expression levels of leptin receptors (long isoform: Lep-R(L) and short isoform: Lep-R(S)) in breast cancer tissue with patient prognosis was studied with special reference to the serum leptin level or the leptin mRNA level in tumor tissue. Lep-R(L), Lep-R(S) and leptin mRNA levels in breast cancer tissue (n=91) were determined with a real-time PCR assay, and serum leptin levels in breast cancer patients (n=67) with an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay," researchers in Japan report.
