12/19/2003 - "In mature mice between 13 and 26 weeks of age, there was a marked decrease in these parameters including a reduction in the relative size of the CNS to 1.7% of body weight, a decrease in the rate of sterol accretion to 0.012 mg/day, and a reduction in the rate of cholesterol synthesis to 0.035 mg/day. "
02/01/2003 - "Finally, statin therapy and better compliance to dietary recommendations resulted in the normalisation of cholesterol level, a marked decrease in triglyceride concentration and a loss of 5 kg of body weight. "
01/01/2001 - "After the six months of the program: 1) Total cholesterol levels had decreased significantly, along with both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, body weight and BMI; 2) Major nutrient intake, density of nutrients and eating behavior were improved, with decrease in daily salt intake, and increase significant in daily energy expenditure; 3) Stress scores by the Nichidai stress check were decreased significantly, subjects with higher stress scores at the beginning of programs having marked change, and neurotic tendencies were decreased in CMI categories II-IV. These results suggest that, in order to maintain and/or improve the QOL of climacteric women, good dietary habits and physical activities, such as walking, and psychological support are essential. "
01/01/2009 - "Black participants with A1(+) genotypes had significantly greater mean body weight (11.2 kg heavier, P = 0.05) and greater intake of fat (P = 0.002), saturated fat (P = 0.01), and cholesterol (P = 0.02) compared with A2A2 (A1(-)) individuals; dietary changes during the study did not favor one genotype group. "
08/01/2014 - "Extended administration of TM-2 stimulated a significant reduction in body weight and levels of serum triglyceride LDL-C and total cholesterol in rats. "

6. LeptinIBA
01/01/2014 - "However, treating obese people with exogenous leptin was unsuccessful in most cases since most of them present already high circulating leptin levels to which they do not respond anymore defining the so-called state of "leptin resistance." Indeed, leptin therapy is unsuccessful to lower body weight in commonly obese people but effective in people with rare single gene mutations of the leptin gene. "
01/01/2014 - "These results suggest that a body weight gain induced by the HFD feeding regimen significantly improved bone mass in female APP/PS1 mice with no detriments to exploration ability and spatial memory, most likely via the action of elevated circulating leptin. "
01/01/2013 - "Genetically obese females reared by lean dams showed normalized early levels of leptin and reduced body weight, food intake and body fat at adulthood; normalized estrous cycle structure and food intake across the cycle, improved hormonal profile and peripheral leptin sensitivity and a remarkable progress in self-control when exposed to a high fat/palatable diet. "
06/01/2005 - "Recent studies indicate that the passive range of motion exercise of the extremities results in a significantly greater increase of body weight, increased bone mineralization, increased bone formation markers and leptin levels, and attenuation of the natural post-natal decline in bone SOS. "
05/01/2002 - "In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that a single daily injection of the gut peptide CCK, together with continuous leptin infusion, would produce significantly greater loss of body weight than leptin alone. "
