  • Association of the leptin gene with knee osteoarthritis susceptibility in a Han Chinese population: A case-control study 

    Qin, J.; Shi, D.; Dai, J.; Zhu, L.; Tsezou, A.; Jiang, Q. (2010)
    Previous studies have suggested that leptin works as a key regulator in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis (OA), and genetic factors modulate OA. This study assessed the contribution of leptin gene (LEP) polymorphism(s) ...
