Abstract

This study shows that intravenous infusions of GRP can decrease spontaneous food intake at concentrations that produce physiological effects, such as stimulation of acid or pancreatic secretion or gallbladder contraction. The data imply that GRP-like peptides can act as satiety signals in humans, confirming data previously reported in animals.
