Two anorectic drugs commonly prescribed as adjuncts in weight control and a third experimental drug were studied in rats for their anorectic and possible thermogenic activities. Diethylpropion, a congener of amphetamine, mazindol, which is chemically unrelated to amphetamine, and ciclazindol, an experimental drug structurally similar to mazindol, were given in graded doses to determine their effect on food and oxygen consumption (VO2). Anorectic effects exhibited by diethylpropion and mazindol… Expand
Metabolic mechanism of the anorectic and leptogenic effects of the serotonin agonist fenfluramine
TLDR
The data demonstrate that serotonin agonists like D-FF are more than anorectics since they enhance EE and therefore should be referred to as "leptogenic" (leptos = lean) agents since their end effect is the reduction of BW. Expand
Anorectic interaction and safety of 5-hydroxytryptophan/carbidopa plus phentermine or diethylpropion in rat
TLDR
5-HTP/30 mg/kg carbidopa potentiates the anorectic effect of diethylpropion and phentermine with an acceptable safety profile, but further clinical studies are necessary to establish their therapeutic potential in the obesity treatment. Expand
Effect of mazindol, d-amphetamine and diethylpropion on purine nucleotide binding to brown adipose tissue
TLDR
There was a significant increase in purine nucleotide (GDP) binding to mitochondria only in the amphetamine-treated animals, and there was no difference in body weight or food intake with any of the three drugs after the third day of chronic treatment. Expand
Direct and indirect thermogenic effects of anorectic drugs.
TLDR
In 1937, several clinicians reported that patients receiving amphetamine for the treatment of narcolepsy and other disorders showed persistent losses in body weight, and the significance of this observation was quickly realized by Lesses and Myerson (1938), who advocated the use of amphetamines for the Treatment of obesity.

Drug Insight: appetite suppressants

TLDR
Appetite suppressants should be viewed as useful adjuncts to diet and physical activity and might help selected patients to achieve and maintain weight loss. Expand
Chapter 16. Progress in the Development of Antiobesity Drugs
TLDR
Results from a study in healthy volunteers suggested that a dose of 100-200 mg of Bay g 5421 per meal might be effective for clinical trials in diabetes, hypertriglyceridemia, and obesity. Expand
Comparison of brown adipose tissue thermogenesis induced by congeners and isomers of phenylpropanolamine.
TLDR
Comparisons of isomer potency revealed that the 1-isomer was more thermogenic than the d-isomers for EPH and PPA but not for AMP, NOR and PS, and the implications for the weight-reducing activity of these compounds are discussed. Expand
Effect of fenfluramine on sympathetic firing rate
TLDR
Data support the hypothesis that fenfluramine can increase peripheral sympathetic activity and body weight loss following acute treatment with fenFLuramine was significantly greater at three and twenty-four hours than in the vehicle-treated controls. Expand
Effect of fenfluramine on GDP-binding to brown adipose tissue mitochondria
TLDR
These studies suggest a thermogenic effect of fenfluramine on the brown adipose tissue of rats. Expand
Weight-Loss Pharmacotherapy: A Brief Review
TLDR
agents approved for short-term treatment include the central anorectic agents phentermine and diethylpropion and other agents, including endocannabinoid system antagonists, anti-epileptic agents, and combination therapies, are under investigation. Expand

SYMPATHETIC MECHANISMS IN DIET‐INDUCED THERMOGENESIS: MODIFICATION BY CICLAZINDOL AND ANORECTIC DRUGS
TLDR
The findings suggest that ciclazindol may produce an energy wasting effect in rodents without causing overt CNS stimulation; the implications of these findings in terms of human obesity are discussed. Expand

TLDR
Phentermine and mazindol increased energy expenditure in normal mice by 35% compared to untreated controls in the 6 h after dosing but diethylpropion and fenfluramine had little or no effect. Expand
Central mechanisms of anorectic drugs
ABSTRACT Anorectics can be divided on the basis of their mechanism of action into those like amphetamine and other phenylethylamines which depress food intake by interacting with brainExpand
Some metabolic interrelationships between toxic levels of cadmium and nontoxic levels of selenium fed to rats.
TLDR
Interactions between nontoxic levels of Dietary selenium and relatively high levels of dietary cadmium apparently resulted in an antagonism of seenium metabolism by cadMium in some systems, and partial amelioration of cadmiam toxicity by selenIUM in other systems. Expand
A role for brown adipose tissue in diet-induced thermogenesis
TLDR
Measurement of energy balance during voluntary over-eating in rats unequivocally establishes the quantitative importance of diet-induced thermogenesis in energy balance and suggests that this tissue may determine metabolic efficiency and resistance to obesity. Expand
