BACKGROUND The frequency of obesity has risen dramatically in recent years but only few safe and effective drugs are currently available. We assessed the effect of liraglutide on bodyweight and tolerability in obese individuals without type 2 diabetes. METHODS We did a double-blind, placebo-controlled 20-week trial, with open-label orlistat comparator in(More)
Alterations in arginine vasopressin regulation and secretion have been proposed as one possible biochemical abnormality in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder. In golden hamsters, arginine vasopressin microinjections into the anterior hypothalamus trigger robust grooming and flank marking, a stereotyped scent marking behaviors. The intensity and(More)
The aim of the present study was to quantify beta(2)-adrenoceptor protein content in adipose tissue during fasting, and to study the relationships between beta(2)-adrenoceptor protein and mRNA levels and changes in metabolites related to lipolysis. Groups of male subjects with a body mass index of <25 kg/m(2) or >30 kg/m(2) fasted for 60 h. Abdominal(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine gene expression and protein concentrations of beta(1)- and beta(2)-adrenergic receptors in subcutaneous adipose tissue in obese subjects in response to weight loss. Eighteen obese subjects were studied during diet-induced weight loss. Beta-adrenergic receptor mRNA levels were quantified by reverse(More)
