There is evidence that acute exercise have minor or no effects on leptin concentration. To determine of acute response of serum leptin to one session running test, twenty adult obese men were participated in study by randomly. Participants were included if they had not been involved in regular physical activity or diet in the previous 6 months. For this purpose, venous blood samples were taken before and immediately after single bout running test in order to measuring serum leptin and to compare its values between two samples. Student’s paired ‘t’ test was applied to compare the pre and post exercise values. Compared to pre-exercise, the leptin levels did not change significantly (P≥0.05) after acute exercise in studied subjects. Based on these data, we conclude acute long-time exercise is not associated with anti-inflammatory properties in obese with emphasis on serum leptin.
