    A molecular approach to genetic and hypothalamic obesity. In: Bray GA, Ricquier D, Spiegelman BM, eds. Obesity, Towards a Molecular Approach: Proceedings of a UCLA Symposium held at Keystone, Colorado, April The use of modern molecular biology tools in deciphering the perturbed biochemistry and physiology underlying the obese state has proven invaluable. Identifying the hypothalamic leptin/melanocortin pathway as critical in many cases of monogenic obesity has permitted targeted, hypothesis-driven experiments to be performed, and has implicated new candidates as causative for previously Cited by:

[No authors listed] PMID. () -- Researchers from the University of Dundee have come up with a new innovative approach in the quest to reduce failure rates in the drug discovery process and fight 'molecular obesity'. While twin studies and feeding experiments continued, obesity research also took a decidedly molecular turn with the discovery of the peptide hormone and satiety factor leptin in Cited by: Obesity is a major public health concern because it predisposes the individual to many disorders, such as noninsulin-dependent diabetes, hypertension, stroke, and coronary artery disease, and has been associated with an increased incidence of certain cancers, notably cancers of the colon, rectum, prostate, breast, uterus, and cervix.

Obesity research is now very active and understanding of the disease has greatly increased. The International Textbook of Obesity offers a definitive coverage of the area looking at epidemiology, causes, current research and management.

* Gives an up to date account of the field. However, a large need still exists for therapeutics that target the underlying molecular causes of obesity—starting with adipose (fat) tissue.

In this WEEKLY, we explore the emerging view that adipose tissue is a metabolic organ that undergoes pathological changes when we become obese. This comprehensive book examines the causes and effects of obesity, both on the human body as well as society as a whole.

The significance obesity plays in the development of a variety of lethal and non-lethal diseases is discussed, and the prevention and treatment of obesity is looked at in detail. It is now widely accepted that genes play a significant role in the development of human obesity.

The mapping of genes contributing to obesity and to regional fat distribution in humans is based on association and linkage studies. This article presents a review of these studies in humans for phenotypes related to excess body mass or body fat and regional fat by:.
