BACKGROUND: Anti-obesity effects of calcium antagonists such as benidipine and nifedipine have been described in rodent obesity models, but the mode of action of the calcium antagonists as anti-obesity agents has not been established.OBJECTIVE: To examine whether the anti-obesity effects of calcium antagonists (here benidipine) could be ascribed to a direct stimulation of brown adipose tissue (BAT) thermogenesis.METHODS: Examination of the ability of benidipine to induce thermogenesis… CONTINUE READING
