Formula:  C714H1167N191O221S6
Species:  Human
Source:  E. coli
CAS No. :  186018-45-1

Synonyms:  Metreleptin; Metreleptina; Métréleptine; Metreleptinum; N-Methionylleptin; r-metHuLeptin
Drug name:  Metreleptin
Applications:  The product is indicated as an adjunct to diet as replacement therapy to treat the complications of leptin deficiency in patients with congenital or acquired generalized lipodystrophy.
Examples of Clinical Use:  Congenital or acquired generalized lipodystrophy
Pharmacodynamics :  In patients with leptin deficiency, clinical trials demonstrated that exogenous leptin administration results in weight loss, reduction in mean HbA1c and fasting glucose levels, reduced blood insulin, and reduced triglyceride levels leading to improved insulin sensitivity and reductions in food intake.
Mechanism of action:  Metreleptin functions by binding to and activating the human leptin receptor (ObR), which belongs to the Class I cytokine family of receptors that signals through the JAK/STAT transduction pathway.
Affected organisms:  Humans and other mammals
