Metabolic inhibitors synergistically decrease hepatic energy status and increase food intake.

Previous studies indicate that administration of the metabolic inhibitor, 2,5-anhydro-D-mannitol (2,5-AM) or methyl palmoxirate (MP), induces feeding behavior in rats by lowering hepatic energy status. Combined treatment with these agents synergistically increases food intake. The present study was designed to investigate whether combined treatment also has… CONTINUE READING
