Dexamethasone increases serum leptin concentration in dogs


Dexamethasone increases serum leptin concentration in dogs

Five male Beagles (2-years-old, 13.9-14.2 kg body weight) were divided into A (n=2) and B (n=3) groups. After an overnight fasting, group A was subcutaneously injected with 2 ml dexamethasone solution and group B with physiological saline. Blood samples were obtained before and at 3 or 8-h intervals after injection over 24 h. Leukocyte counts were determined in all the dogs. After 2 weeks, group B was injected with dexamethasone and group A with saline at the same dosages.
