We have studied the effects of chronic peripheral infusion of thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) and norepinephrine (NE) alone and together. Do these hormones additively affect energy balance and body weight similarly in obese animals? 20 obese (fa/fa) Zucker strain rats were studied. Food intake, body weight and resting metabolic rate (RMR) were measured… CONTINUE READING
