  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of intravenous infusion of two gastrointestinal hormones, PYY3-36 and GLP-1, alone and in combination, on appetite in healthy obese men. The investigators hypothesize that an intravenous infusion of each hormone alone will decrease food intake at a buffet meal and decrease appetite, and that in combination, there will be a greater decrease in food intake and appetite compared to each hormone alone.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Ad libitum energy intake [ Time Frame: Immediately following 3h IV infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Energy expenditure (ventilated hood technique). [ Time Frame: During 3h IV infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Changes in levels of glucose, insulin, C peptide, GIP, leptin, ghrelin, adiponectin, cholecystokinin [ Time Frame: Prior to, and 15, 30, 60, 90, 120, 180 mins during IV infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Appetite sensation by visual analog scale [ Time Frame: Every 30 minutes during 3h IV infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Gastric emptying (paracetamol) [ Time Frame: At time=15, 30, 60, 90, 120, 180 mins during IV infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
