Özet

Objectives: Leptin is a fat tissue hormone, which effects energy expenditure, food intake, hematopoiesis, osteogenesis, angiogenesis, reproductive and immune systems. We aimed to determine serum leptin levels and investigate the association between disease activity and other in parameters in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients.
