The possible involvement of glutamatergic mechanisms in the control of food intake was studied in free-feeding and in 24-h food-deprived (FD24) pigeons for 1 h after intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) treatment with glutamate (Glu, 0, 50, 150, 300, and 600 nmol). Glu injections dose dependently induced decreases (30-65%) in food intake (FI) and feeding(More)
The effects of local injections of adrenaline (Adr, 6 nmol) or noradrenaline (Nor, 16 nmol) into the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) and into other anterior hypothalamic districts on feeding behavior were examined in satiated pigeons bearing a chronically implanted cannula. When infused into the PVN, both Adr and Nor reliably elicited feeding responses during(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the behavior of acute phase proteins and lipid profile in patients undergoing Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. METHODS We conducted a prospective study, consisting of three moments: M1 - preoperative (24 hours before surgery); M2 - 30 days after surgery; and M3 - 180 days after surgery. We carried measured height and BMI, as well as(More)
