Satiety peptides for treatment of obesity (Prof. Dr. Annette G. Beck-Sickinger, completed)

With the help of cell culture studies and animal models the researchers synthesize gastro-intestinal peptide hormones and try to influence the feeling of hunger and satiety with these hormones. The hypothesis is, that adipose persons have a dysfunction of hormones, which are responsible for the sense of hunger and satiety. Therefore, hormones are being altered in the laboratory in a way so that the feeling of hunger and satiety works again as in healthy persons.
