There are various forms of the satiety gut-brain peptide cholecystokinin (CCK), a short, widely utilized form or CCK-8, and a long, putatively more effective form or CCK-33. The issue of which of these forms is a more effective satiety peptide is not resolved. Here, we compared the satiety responses, including the sizes of the first three meals (MS) and intermeal intervals (IMI) as well as their calculated satiety ratios (SR), evoked by both peptides. CCK-8 and 33 (1, 3 and 5 nmol/kg, i.p… CONTINUE READING
