Gut Hormones and Other Regulators of Appetite, Satiety and Energy Expenditure
Organizer(s): Stephen R. Bloom and Roger D. Cone
Date: March 02 - 07, 2006
Location: Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Sponsored by Lilly Research Laboratories
Summary of Meeting:
Circulating factors are important in regulating energy balance. It has long been recognized that the adipose hormone, leptin, reduces food intake by specific CNS pathways. Gut hormones have also been shown to be major regulators of appetite, acting both in the brainstem and hypothalamus. In addition, they have been found to markedly influence energy expenditure. Obesity is associated with a reduced gut hormone release but the mechanism is unknown. In man, this change may perpetuate or contribute to obesity. This meeting will address the physiological importance of circulating hormones in the regulation of energy balance. We will explore the mechanisms involved, their disturbance in obesity, and therapeutic possibilities.
