BACKGROUND Disturbances of leptin, neuropeptide Y (NPY), and peptide YY (PYY) have been found in women who are ill with anorexia or bulimia nervosa. It is not certain whether peptide disturbances are cause or consequence of eating disorders. METHODS Plasma leptin and cerebrospinal fluid leptin, NPY, and PYY concentrations were measured in women who were recovered from anorexia or bulimia nervosa to determine whether alterations persisted after recovery. RESULTS NPY, PYY, and leptin… Expand
Constitutional thinness and lean anorexia nervosa display opposite concentrations of peptide YY, glucagon-like peptide 1, ghrelin, and leptin.
TLDR
Orexigenic and anorexigenic hormones in CT contrast with an adaptative profile characterizing AN, and the hormones appear to be valuable biomarkers for distinguishing these 2 categories of severely underweight subjects. Expand
Neuroendocrine dysregulation of food intake in eating disorders
TLDR
It is proposed that neuroendocrine alterations, even when secondary to malnutrition and/or to aberrant eating behaviors, might contribute to the genesis and the maintenance of some symptomatic aspects of AN and BN, thus affecting the course and the prognosis of these disorders. Expand
Reduced gastrin releasing peptide in cerebrospinal fluid after recovery from bulimia nervosa
TLDR
Persistent GRP abnormalities after recovery from BN raise the possibility that this alteration might be trait-related and contribute to episodic hyperphagia in BN. Expand
Peptide YY release in anorectic patients after liquid meal
TLDR
It is concluded that basal and postprandial PYY levels in normal weight women are not different from anorectic patients, and this finding could not confirm the recently published blunted postprandely PYY response in anorexia. Expand
Peptide YY3–36 concentration in acute- and long-term recovered anorexia nervosa
TLDR
There is additional evidence for a normal basal PYY3–36 concentration in AN and future studies should study multiple appetite-regulating peptides and their complex interplay and also use research designs including a food challenge. Expand
Central and peripheral peptides regulating eating behaviour and energy homeostasis in anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa: a literature review.
TLDR
A review of the most significant literature studies that explored the physiology of central and peripheral peptides, which have prominent effects on eating behaviour, body weight and energy homeostasis in patients with anorexia nervosa and BN, and the relevance of peptide dysfunctions for the pathophysiology of eating disorders. Expand
Ghrelin and obestatin circadian levels differentiate bingeing-purging from restrictive anorexia nervosa.
TLDR
Patients with AN-associated bingeing-purging behavior present a very different profile of appetite regulatory peptides when compared with the pure restrictive type, suggesting either a lack of adaptation to a starvation state or a higher facility to cope with undernutrition. Expand
Altered ghrelin and peptide YY responses to meals in bulimia nervosa
TLDR
This study investigated the postprandial profile of ghrelin and PYY levels in patients with BN and found that alterations in hormone physiology may play a role in the pathogenesis of bulimia nervosa. Expand
Ghrelin: Central and Peripheral Implications in Anorexia Nervosa
TLDR
The role played by ghrelin in AN focusing on its central vs. peripheral actions is described, which suggests that AN could be an addictive behavior disorder, potentially linking defects in the reward mechanism with suppressed food intake, heightened physical activity, and mood disorder. Expand
The Role of “Mixed” Orexigenic and Anorexigenic Signals and Autoantibodies Reacting with Appetite-Regulating Neuropeptides and Peptides of the Adipose Tissue-Gut-Brain Axis: Relevance to Food Intake and Nutritional Status in Patients with Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa
TLDR
Data is reviewed that demonstrate that hunger-satiety signals play an important role in the pathogenesis of eating disorders and neuroendocrine dysregulations of the AT-gut-brain axis peptides and neutralizing autoantibodies may result in AN and BN. Expand

Cerebrospinal fluid peptide YY immunoreactivity in eating disorders.
TLDR
Results suggest that bulimic behavior may correct a central nervous system abnormality in PYY, a recently discovered peptide that is a potent stimulant of eating behavior in rats. Expand
Altered cerebrospinal fluid neuropeptide Y and peptide YY immunoreactivity in anorexia and bulimia nervosa.
TLDR
Cerebrospinal fluid peptide YY concentrations were significantly elevated in normal-weight bulimic patients abstinent from pathological eating behavior for a month compared with themselves when actively bingeing and vomiting or compared with healthy volunteers. Expand
Serum leptin concentrations in patients with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and non‐specific eating disorders correlate with the body mass index but are independent of the respective disease
TLDR
The aim of this study was to determine the role of leptin in severe eating disorders, and whether its levels are correlated with the specific disease or exclusively with body weight. Expand
Neuropeptide Y, galanin, and leptin release in obese women and in women with anorexia nervosa.
TLDR
The results indicate that inappropriate plasma concentrations of NPY, galanin, and leptin in obese women may be a consequence of their weight status, or could be one of many factors involved in the pathogenesis of obesity. Expand
Serum leptin levels in women with anorexia nervosa.
TLDR
Serum leptin levels correlate highly with weight, percent body fat, and IGF-I in subjects with anorexia nervosa, suggesting that the physiological regulation of leptin is maintained in relation to nutritional status even at an extreme of low weight and body fat. Expand
Leptin levels in patients with anorexia nervosa are reduced in the acute stage and elevated upon short-term weight restoration
TLDR
Plasma leptin concentrations were determined during inpatient treatment of 23 adolescent females with AN using a sensitive radioimmunoassay and set into relationship to leptin levels of females matched for age, body mass index (BMI) and/or percent body fat. Expand
Cerebrospinal fluid leptin in anorexia nervosa: correlation with nutritional status and potential role in resistance to weight gain.
TLDR
It is suggested that normalization of CSF leptin levels before full weight restoration during treatment of anorexic patients could contribute to resistance to weight gain and/or incomplete weight recovery. Expand
Peptide YY (PYY), a poteny orexigenic agent
TLDR
Data suggests that PYY is one of the most potent orexigenic substances yet to be identified and may play a role in the pathogenesis of bulimic syndromes. Expand
Sensitivity to leptin and susceptibility to seizures of mice lacking neuropeptide Y
TLDR
It is reported here that mice deficient for NPY have normal food intake and body weight, and become hyperphagic following food deprivation, and mutants are more susceptible to seizures induced by a GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid) antagonist when treated with recombinant leptin. Expand
Low leptin levels predict amenorrhea in underweight and eating disordered females
Evidence that leptin plays an important role in reproductive function is accumulating rapidly. We hypothesized that low leptin synthesis is associated with amenorrhea. We therefore determined serumExpand
