Background: Adiponectin and leptin are hormones which are related to body fat tissues and body weight. In pregnant women, conflicting associations have been reported between the role of serum concentrations of adiponectin and leptin with infant birth weight. The aim of this study was to determine the association between maternal and cord blood adiponectin and leptin concentrations with birth weight. Methods: As a cross-sectional study 86 pregnant women referred to university hospital clinics were recruited. Maternal and umbilical cord blood samples were obtained in delivery room just after birth. The maternal and umbilical cord serum samples were analyzed for adiponectin and leptin. Their birth weight and height were measured at labor.
Results:
The mean of maternal BMI, birth weight, and gestational age was 23.8±4.8 kg/m2, 3.13±0.14 kg, and 38.15±2.6 week, respectively. No correlation between adiponectin and birth weight were found. Birth weight positively correlates with leptin.
Conclusion:
leptin concentrations in cord blood may be reflected the alternation of body fat tissue in infant and independently associated with infant birth weight.
