    Primary aging in adult humans is associated with a progressive, tonic activation of the peripheral sympathetic nervous system (SNS). The purpose of this SNS activation and its physiological impact are, however, unknown. We hypothesize that the chronic stimulation of the SNS with aging is driven...

    Adipose tissue secretes factors that control various physiological systems. The fall in leptin during fasting mediates hyperphagia and suppresses thermogenesis, thyroid and reproductive hormones, and immune system. On the other hand, rising leptin levels in the fed state stimulate fatty acid...

    An overnight fast of 8–10 h is normal for most people. Fasting is characterised by a coordinated set of metabolic changes designed to spare carbohydrate and increase reliance on fat as a substrate for energy supply. As well as sparing the limited endogenous carbohydrate, and...

    During the 9th month (Ramadan) of the Islamic calendar (Hijra) many millions of adult Muslims all over the world fast during the daylight hours. Since Hijra is a lunar calendar, Ramadan occurs at different times in the seasonal year over a 33-year cycle. Fasting during Ramadan is partial because...

    The radical change of lifestyle during Ramadan fast has shown to affect cardiometabolic risk variables in adults. In youth, however, no studies are available. We aimed to evaluate the effect of Ramadan fast on Body Mass Index (BMI) and the cardiometabolic profile of obese adolescents. A...

    Aim: Fasting is characterised by profound changes in energy metabolism including progressive loss of body proteins. The underlying mechanisms are however unknown and we therefore determined the effects of a 72-hour-fast on human skeletal muscle protein metabolism and activation of mammalian...

    Rimonabant and taranabant are two extensively studied cannabinoid-1 receptor (CB1R) inverse agonists. Their effects on in vivo peripheral tissue metabolism are generally well replicated. The central nervous system site of action of taranabant or rimonabant is firmly established based on brain...
