OBJECTIVE Anorexia nervosa is characterized by low IGF-1 and high GH and free fatty acid (FFA) levels. As FFA exerts an inhibitory feedback action on GH secretion in physiological conditions, we hypothesized that somatotroph cells could be less sensitive to the negative feedback action of FFA in anorexia nervosa. PATIENTS Fifteen patients with anorexia(More)
We propose a new look at the heat bath for two Brownian particles, in which the heat bath as a "system" is both perturbed and sensed by the Brownian particles. Nonlocal thermal fluctuations give rise to bath-mediated static forces between the particles. Based on the general sum rule of the linear response theory, we derive an explicit relation linking these(More)
