Abstract

Objectives: Hemodialysis subjects have been shown to have both elevated serum leptin and peripheral DNA damage level, and leptin has been suggested to induce apoptotic features. Thus, in the present study, we aimed at finding out if there is any relationship between serum leptin level and peripheral DNA damage in hemodialysis subjects.
