It was demonstrated that estrogen deficiency and consuming high fat (HF) diet enhanced orexigenic activity of ghrelin. Therefore, we hypothesized that antagonizing of ghrelin action would attenuate food intake and body weight in mice obese both from ovariectomy (OVX) and feeding a HF diet. Ghrelin receptor antagonist [D-Lys(3)]GHRP-6 after seven days of(More)
Ghrelin and agonists of its receptor GHS-R1a are potential substances for the treatment of cachexia. In the present study, we investigated the acute and long term effects of the GHS R1a agonist JMV 1843 (H Aib-DTrp-D-gTrp-CHO) on food intake, body weight and metabolic parameters in lean C57BL/6 male mice. Additionally, we examined stability of JMV 1843 in(More)
Metformin, vildagliptin and their combination are widely used for the treatment of diabetes, but little is known about the metabolic responses to these treatments. In the present study, NMR-based metabolomics was applied to detect changes in the urinary metabolomic profile of a mouse model of diet-induced obesity in response to these treatments.(More)
The only peripherally released orexigenic hormone, ghrelin, plays a key role in food intake and body weight regulation. Antagonizing the ghrelin receptor, GHS-R1a, represents a promising approach for anti-obesity therapy. In our study, two novel GHS-R1a antagonists JMV4208 and JMV3002, which are trisubstituted 1,2,4-triazoles, decreased food intake in(More)
