Almased’s Powerful Effects on Appetite and Satiety
After leptin was discovered in the mid-1990s, scientists believed they had discovered the cure for obesity.
They thought this because when they injected leptin into mice, they observed that the mice were significantly less hungry and more trim.
But the main study in humans was a complete failure from a weight-loss standpoint. The pharmaceutical company that developed this leptin “drug,” and which had sponsored the research, must have been very disappointed.
