Ghrelin is a recently identified orexigenic hormone secreted by the stomach and has been implicated in meal-time hunger. Several experiments demonstrate a transient surge in ghrelin secretion shortly before a scheduled meal, suggesting from the involvement of cephalic mechanisms. If ghrelin secretion is stimulated by hunger in sheep, plasma levels of ghrelin should be modified by different feeding regimens that affect hunger drive. To test this hypothesis, we investigated changes in plasma… CONTINUE READING
