Influence of Bariatric Surgery on Serum Levels of 26RFa

The 26RFa is an orexigenic neuropeptide of the Rfamides family, localized in two hypothalamic nuclei. Its increase induced obesity and it is elevated in obese rodents. In addition, in human, it is elevated in anorexic patients. However, no data exists in obese patients or in patients with diabetes. Thus, the ...
