The effects of the TRH metabolite cyclo(His-Pro) and its analogs on feeding.


Cyclo(His-Pro), or cHP, is a putative metabolite of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH), and, like TRH, can inhibit food intake but requires higher doses. In attempts to improve the anorectic effects of cHP through modification of its structure, a number of its analogs were synthesized. These analogs or cHP itself were administered to rats either by… (More)
