Acute effects of orexigenic antipsychotic drugs on lipid and carbohydrate metabolism in rat
This study aims to investigate whether orexigenic antipsychotic drugs may induce dyslipidemia and glucose disturbances in female rats through direct perturbation of metabolically active peripheral tissues, independent of ...
Gene expression in the rat brain: High similarity but unique differences between frontomedial-, temporal- and occipital cortex
(BioMed Central, 2011-01-26)
Background: The six-layered neocortex of the mammalian brain may appear largely homologous, but is in reality a modular structure of anatomically and functionally distinct areas. However, global gene expression seems to ...
Olanzapine-Induced Hyperphagia and Weight Gain Associate with Orexigenic Hypothalamic Neuropeptide Signaling without Concomitant AMPK Phosphorylation
(Public Library of Science, 2011-06-13)
The success of antipsychotic drug treatment in patients with schizophrenia is limited by the propensity of these drugs to induce hyperphagia, weight gain and other metabolic disturbances, particularly evident for olanzapine ...
