ABSTRACT
In addition to genetics and androgens, novel factors could play a role in androgenetic alopecia
(AGA). This study aims to investigate the association between plasma leptin level with the
risk and severity of AGA in men. Forty-eight subjects were enrolled including 29 AGA and
19 non-AGA subjects. The plasma leptin level was significantly higher in AGA subjects,
compared to non-AGA subjects (4.45 vs. 2.76 ng/ml, P< 0.05). A higher plasma leptin levels
was positively correlated with the risk of developing AGA in multivariate logistic analysis
(odds ratio= 2.77, P<0.05). Leptin from the circulation might impact the development of
AGA.
