Access from EThOS:
Ingested lipid releases the gut peptide cholecystokinin (CCK) which limits food intake by modulating gut function and signalling to the brain. Current understanding of this pathway and its interaction with other gut-brain signalling peptides such as ghrelin is incomplete. To clarify the roles of lipid, CCK and ghrelin in gut-brain signalling pathway in man, a series of human studies were performed in order to answer the following questions.
